Position: Doctoral candidates in the field of optical clocks
Institution: Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt
Location: Braunschweig, Niedersachsen, Germany
Duties: In the “Quantum Logic Spectroscopy” research group, we work on precision spectroscopy of trapped and laser-cooled atomic ions. To this end, we develop quantum computer-inspired techniques for the coherent manipulation of ions and their spectroscopy for applications such as high-precision optical atomic clocks. Tasks in the field of stationary optical clocks: Further development and operation of an Al ion-based quantum logic clock; Further development of automation techniques for the operation of the quantum logic clock; Evaluation of the Al quantum logic clock and comparison with other frequency standards; Development and implementation of quantum algorithms to improve the measurement uncertainty; Tasks in the field of multi-ion spectroscopy: Further development and operation of the Ca -based multi-ion experiment; Implementation and evaluation of multi-ion manipulation and cooling techniques; Development and implementation of quantum algorithms for the entanglement of ions to improve the statistical uncertainty; Further development of dynamic decoupling algorithms to suppress environmental effects; Development of methods for correlated clock retrieval in close collaboration with the Al quantum logic clock; More detailed information about the projects and our job advertisements can be found on our homepage
Requirements: You have completed your university studies (diploma/master’s) in physics with a very good degree; You are interested in developing and performing high-precision experiments; You are highly committed and capable of working independently; you also have a willingness to learn; You are a strong team player with excellent communication skills; You have a very good knowledge of the English language (written and spoken); knowledge of German is an advantage; Having a good knowledge of atomic physics, quantum optics, laser cooling, laser spectroscopy or related fields is an advantage; The physical ability to work in a laboratory and to perform experiments at external sites is required
   
Text: Doctoral candidates in the field of optical clocks (21-319-QUEST) Wednesday, 14. July 2021 The Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) is the national metrology institute of the Federal Republic of Germany with scientific and technical service tasks.
