Implementation of optical approaches in microwave quantum memory systems

Walter-Meißner-Institute

Project description:
A reliable quantum memory system is now actively
searched for among different types of solid state systems.
In particular, rare-earth doped spin ensembles, which
possess favourable transitions in optical and microwave
ranges, are promising candidates.
The current project aims at developing a quantum
memory system based on rare-earth spin ensembles.
Such quantum memory elements should work at zero
magnetic field at ultra-low temperatures. The major task
of the project is to implement optical techniques, such as
spectral hole burning and frequency comb, into the microwave regime.
Experiments will be performed at temperatures below 1K
in a dilution refrigerator at zero magnetic field.
The project is funded by Munich Center for Quantum Science and Technology and will be carried out at the Walter-Meißner-Institute.
Project implies:
Programming in Python and Matlab; work with cryogenic
equipment; measurements at microwave and radio frequencies; deep understanding of hybrid systems
Your profile:
We are looking for an enthusiastic person, who completes and advances our group.
Successful applicants should hold a Master or Diploma in
Physics or Materials Science with honours, be highly selfmotivated and team oriented.
Strong communication skills are expected. Fluent written
and spoken communication in English is essential.
Keywords:
Rare-earths, cryogenics, spin ensembles, spin transitions,
spectral hole burning, atomic frequency comb
