We are looking for talented and motivated PhD students to join our strontium experiment. Our team investigates quantum information and quantum networks with ultracold strontium atoms.
The general idea of our project is to use technology from the most precise systems on Earth, namely atomic clocks, to realize a quantum computing platform. This allows us to achieve a quantum computer with atomic clock precision.
We start by cooling strontium atoms to temperatures near absolute zero. Individual strontium atoms function as qubits, and we use them to study how quantum information is stored, transmitted, processed, and read out. Aside from quantum information applications, our project is also interested in fundamental questions about entanglement, light-matter interactions, quantum measurement, and more.
