Developing high performance quantum detectors
We will develop high performance single photon detectors with high system detection efficiencies and low noise levels, a challenging project combining nanofabrication and quantum optics experiments. The detectors will be based on superconducting nanowire devices and will be designed to reach unprecedented detection efficiencies to enable new experiments such as the closing of the detection loophole in entanglement experiments. This work will be carried out in Grenoble to take advantage of the outstanding nanofabrication facilites available there, in close collaboration with the Zwiller group in Delft.
A postdoc position and a PhD position are currently open for this project. contact: email@example.com
