Postdoc positions in Experimental Quantum Engineering group in Zürich

Studierende finden an der ETH Zürich ein Umfeld, das eigenständiges Denken fördert, Forschende ein Klima, das zu Spitzenleistungen inspiriert.

Jobbeschreibung

100%, Zurich, fixed-term

The Experimental Quantum Engineering (EQE) group seeks for one or two highly motivated postdoctoral researchers to start a project aiming for building a new architecture for quantum computation and simulation with dual-type dual-element arrays of neutral atoms. The EQE group is led by Prof. Wenchao Xu (profile can be found here: )

Arrays of individual atoms trapped in optical tweezers are promising for quantum simulation and quantum information processing. The new apparatus in our group combines arrays of individual atoms and arrays of small atomic ensembles, with the individual atoms for encoding qubits/spins and atomic ensembles for ancillary operations. This project is devoted to implementing new schemes for scalable local qubit operations, fast and non-demolish measurements, and a significant higher experimental repetition rate. These developed schemes enable the study of out-of-equilibrium quantum dynamics, quantum information processing protocols with mid-circuit measurement and feedback, and eventually quantum error correction.
