Quantum information processing
Dr. Stefan Ludwig, Department of Physics, Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich (LMU)
We offer up to three exciting experimental PhD projects in the field of nanoelectronics including quantum information processing and spintronics, thermoelectrics and quantum transport in nanowires, and low‐dimensional systems at ultra‐low temperatures.
In the quantum information processing project you will measure the coherent properties of spin and charge degrees of freedom of single electrons confined in GaAs‐ or SiGe‐based quantum dots. The quantum circuit containing several coupled quantum dots will be laterally defined in GaAs‐ or silicon‐based heterostructures. The manipulation of single electron spins will be performed with the help of on‐chip nanomagnets. This is an ongoing project and we are looking for a PhD student starting as soon as possible to continue part of the research in an existing team.
Are you enthusiastic about a fundamental understanding of nanoscale electronic quantum circuits? Are you thrilled by solving the complex puzzles of interacting nanoscale solid state systems possibly at nonequilibrium? Are you interested in fabricating your own nanostructures in our cleanroom facilities? Would you like to perform challenging experiments at ultra‐low temperatures in a complex lab environment? If all these questions excite you and if you already have a solid background in basic quantum mechanics and solid state physics, you would enjoy working in our group and should apply for a personal interview.
