Participation in the DFG project "Heterogenous quantum systems for single photon delay and pulse shaping (HQSys)". The overarching goal of this project is the development of an atomic quantum memory for storing, reading out and manipulating individual photons from quantum dot-based single-photon sources. In cooperation with the project partners, Prof. Janik Wolters (DLR Berlin) and Dr. Jin-Dong Song (KIST Korea), efficient and spectrally controllable single-photon sources are to be developed, which can be precisely tuned to atomic transitions in cesium. This should then be used to test the storage of individual photons in the quantum memory. The work forms an important basis for the development of future quantum networks and includes the following tasks: Numerical design, production and optical / quantum optical characterization of quantum light sources and their coupling to atomic systems. The exciting and highly topical project covers many aspects of quantum nanophotonics and provides a deep insight into central elements of the emerging photonic quantum technology.
Successfully completed university degree (Master, Diplom or equivalent) in physics or similar courses with in-depth knowledge and experience in the manufacture and optical study of nanophotonic semiconductor structures and quantum light sources, in particular in the context of the final thesis, preferably in the field of arsenite semiconductors and / or quantum dot based semiconductor devices; Experience in the field of optical and / or quantum optical spectroscopy, for example on atomic systems, is desirable; also the willingness to interdisciplinary cooperation with external project groups; good command of German and/or English required; willingness to learn either English or German is expected.
