Postdoctoral Researcher in Quantum Nanomechanics

Postdoctoral Researcher in Quantum Nanomechanics

Aalto University

Espoo, Finland

Your role and goals

Depending on your background and interests, you may work either on:

  • Quantum feedback operations on aluminum drum oscillators. We realize “microwave optomechanical” devices, where the drum oscillators interact with on-chip microwave cavity resonators. Optomechanical techniques allow for both preparing, measuring and manipulation of the mechanical quantum states. You will accommodate these devices into a quantum-limited detection system comprising of parametric amplifiers and real-time feedback realized with FPGA control;
  • The development and measurement of “quantum gravitational” devices, where the core element is an oscillating silicon nitride membrane that is loaded by a small mass. At very low temperatures achievable in dilution refrigerators, the oscillator becomes nearly isolated from energy losses to the environment, and it can further be made quantum with microwave optomechanics. Together with other team members, you will design and fabricate the devices, and accommodate them in a cryogenic positioning system to verify the gravitational forces inside the system.

Your experience and ambitions

For this challenging research, we are looking for brilliant and energetic individuals who are motivated in experimental, low-temperature quantum physics. We require the candidates to have a proven track record in experimental research with similar or related topics, clean room microfabrication, and strong interest in micromechanical systems. Additionally, the candidates should be excellent team players. Experience with cryogenics and dilution refrigerators, and skill in theoretical understanding of the studied phenomena, are considered significant assets.
