- Quantum optics on coupled quantum dots
Solid-state qubits are a promising platform for future quantum technology applications. Among them, semiconductor-based quantum dot molecules (QDMs) - two coupled quantum dots – promise unique properties. Long coherence times (>1µs) and strong optical dipole transitions make them ideal candidates for quantum communication purposes.
Our group works towards the implementation of a multi qubit-photon interface by optically controlling spin states in QDMs.
In your Master's project, you will gain experience in nanofabrication while preparing QDM samples. However, the main part of your time you will spend in an optics lab: Besides studying the fundamental structure of QDMs, you will join in implementing resonance and pulsed excitation to the existing setup. This will enable the investigation and manipulation of charge spins in QDMs at cryogenic temperatures.
For successfully participating in the project, prior knowledge in optics and programming is beneficial. Being keen to learn about quantum optics and being able to work in a team is even more important.
