Experimental Implementation of quantum complex networks via multimode quantum optics

This project concerns the implementation of complex quantum networks, i.e. quantum systems organized in a complex structure depicted as networks, and their exploitation for quantum simulations and optimized quantum information technologies.

The experimental implementation is based on multimode quantum process based on parametric interaction and time/frequency modes of femtosecond lasers (near-infrared and telecom wavelengths). Networks structures are encoded in the quantum correlations of continuous variables of the involved fields.

Candidates must hold an internationally recognized PhD in a field related to experimental quantum physics.  A good background and past research/publication track record in experimental optics, and quantum physics is required.  Knowledge of quantum information would be an advantage.

Application procedure: Inquiries and applications should be sent by email to Valentina Parigi ( Applications should include a detailed CV, a brief statement of research interests and two names of potential referees.

The position is founded by the ERC grant COQCOoN (COntinuous variables Quantum COmplex Networks) of Valentina Parigi, expected starting date:  June 2019.

The team is part of the Multimode Quantum Optic team at Laboratoire Kastler Brossel (PIs: Nicolas Treps, Valentina Parigi and Claude Fabre)
