BrightQuanDTUM - Bright and Positioned Quantum Light Sources at Room Temperature

Prof. Alexander Holleitner & Dr. Christoph Kastl, Walter-Schottky-Institut and Department of Physics, TUM


Project: In this PhD project you will use state-of-the-art nanofabrication and quantum optics to engineer and characterize quantum light sources in layered two-dimensional materials, such as hexagonal boron nitride. The aim is to achieve single photon sources with maximum brightness at room temperature that can be positioned within photonic circuits at nanometer precision to principally meet the standards of semiconductor-based quantum information technologies. You will explore the physical fundamentals of atomistic single-photon emitters using optical experiments, such as micro-luminescence spectroscopy, excitation spectroscopy and single photon statistics. The project will be in close collaboration with our partners at Opens external link in new windowDTU in Denmark and includes a three-month internationalization phase.


Requirements: As a candidate, you bring basic or advanced knowledge in optics, solid state or semiconductor physics, nanophotonics or nanotechnology. You are fluent in either German, English or both. Specialized knowledge or experience in the field of cleanroom fabrication, two-dimensional materials or quantum optics is a plus, but not a must.
Therefore we welcome applications if you have a Master's degree in one of the following or comparable fields: Physics, Material Science, Materials Engineering, Quantum Science & Technology, Nanotechnology or Nanophotonics
