A multi-ion optical clock
At the Center for Quantum Technologies and the National University of Singapore we have an opening for a PhD research project to develop an optical atomic clock based on singly ionized Lutetium. Our group has recently identified singly ionised Lutetium as a viable clock candidate. It has a unique set of atomic properties that lead to very low systematic shifts of the clock transition. In addition, Lutetium offers the unique possibility of operating in the many atom regime which removes a major bottleneck for all other ion based clocks. This project is part of an ongoing experimental effort and we a looking for a highly motivated individual with a keen interest in high performance metrology.
