Post-doctoral position in quantum emitters and quantum technologies with two-dimensional materials

ICFO is offering a postdoctoral position to a well-qualified, highly motivated and dynamic young scientist who wishes to enhance his/her scientific career in a friendly and stimulating environment. The successful candidate will be joining the Quantum Nano-Optoelectronics group led by Prof. Dr. Frank Koppens.

This project is a step forward in the realization of on-chip quantum devices for quantum integrated photonic circuits to facilitate the development of secure quantum communication protocols, the scaling up of quantum computers and simulators, and the invention of novel quantum sensing applications. Very exciting quantum optical properties of materials that are only one atom thick have been discovered only during the last few years.

These so-called two-dimensional materials showed, surprisingly, emission of light photon-by-photon, instead of a continuous photon stream. This project aims to generate single photon sources in 2D materials in a controllable manner. Several approaches will be investigated, including the shaping and patterning of the materials.
