PhD offer: Waveguides for atom-interferometry
The Experimental Quantum Optics and Photonics Group (www.photonics.strath.ac.uk) at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow have
a number of fully-funded PhD positions available in the field of experimental quantum technologies focused on the following projects:
Waveguides for atom-interferometry
The possibility of using interference of coherent matter-waves offer tantalising levels of potential accuracy for measurement devices. A
particular application of interest is that of rotation sensing with applications in quantum-based, autonomous navigation devices. The student will join an research programmes in BEC interferometry at Strathclyde in the development of a Bose-Einstein condensate atom interferometer device. A key aim is the demonstration of an integrated optics and BEC interferometry. This project would ultimately inform the translation of chip-based BEC technology into a practical navigation tool.
