Quantum logic with strontium in optical lattices

Project description
We are launching a new team at the Centre for Quantum Technologies and the National University of Singapore, and we have multiple open positions for motivated graduate students. We aim to realize a quantum many-body system by trapping ultracold strontium atoms in artificial crystals of light. Our scientific goal is to use Rydberg states to perform quantum computations with this system that can be scaled to many qubits. We are also investigating a new approach to generating squeezed states, which are entangled states that can beat the standard quantum limit to measurement precision. Getting involved with a new research team when it is first launched is an extraordinary opportunity for graduate students to obtain strong scientific training. Working on an experiment from the ground up means that students will be exposed to a wide variety of scientific techniques, such as quantum measurement, laser cooling of atoms, photon detection, electronics, lasers, optics, programming, data analysis, theory, and more.
