The aim of the post will be to work on applying methods for advanced coherent control of single and multiple spins to near-surface optically addressable defects, including those within atomic-force microscope tips. The project will make use of a new laboratory with an Attocube instrument possessing an atomic force microscope / confocal microscope (AFM/CFM), combined with a 1/1/1T vector magnet and closed cycle cryostat, as well as superconducting single photon detectors. Duties and responsibilities: Use electron and nuclear spin resonance techniques, combined with optical spectroscopy and characterise and coherently control spins in a range of materials, down to the single spin level. Use near-surface optically-readable defect spins to perform quantum sensing experiments on a range of materials, and optimise the sensitivity Prepare progress reports on research for funding bodies as required. Prepare manuscripts for submission to peer-reviewed journals Prepare invention disclosures Prepare presentations, including text and images, for delivery by self as well as others Contribute to the overall activities of the research team and department as required. Contribute to the smooth running of the optical laboratory, including cryostats, lasers, detectors and spectrometer Carry out any other duties as are within the scope, spirit and purpose of the job as requested by Prof Morton. Actively follow UCL policies including Equal Opportunities and Race Equality policies. Maintain an awareness and observation of Fire and Health and Safety Regulations.
