Postdoctoral/Research Fellow at ANU: quantum optical interconnects using magnetic rare earth crystals


Supervisor, primary contact: Dr Rose Ahlefeldt (rose.ahlefeldt@anu.edu.au)

Location: Research School of Physics, ANU, Canberra

Type: continuing contingent (funded for 2.5 years)

Salary: Academic Level A/B ($74,775 - $115,428 per annum plus 17% Superannuation)

We are looking for a postdoc to work on a collaborative project to develop an efficient single-photon microwave-to-optical frequency converter. This type of frequency converter allows quantum computers that operate at microwave frequencies, such as superconducting systems, to be connected to existing optical quantum networks.

The frequency converter will be implemented in a magnetically ordered rare earth crystal, with optical and collective microwave resonances used to mediate conversion. The postdoc will study the optical and microwave resonances to determine the best conditions for high efficiency conversion.

This is a multi-disciplinary project, combining studies of magnetic materials, optically dense media, short-range interactions in solids and optical and microwave engineering, and involving researchers in Australia, Switzerland, and New Zealand. We invite applications from candidates across the areas of quantum physics, magnetism, and optical physics of solids whose expertise can be adapted to the project.

The Research School of Physics values diversity and aims to improve the participation of historically under-represented groups in science, with the goal of building a more inclusive, more innovative physics community for the future. Women and other underrepresented groups in science are particularly encouraged to apply.

Closing date: 26 Nov 2021.   For enquiries, please contact Dr Rose Ahlefeldt, or to apply, please visit https://jobs.anu.edu.au/cw/en/job/542607/postdoctoral-fellow-research-fellow

Sensor response model for Chemical/Biological detectors for airborne hazardous materials


Project Leader: Professor Jonathan Manton
Staff: Prof. Jonathan Manton, Prof. Bill Moran, Prof. Len Sciacca
Collaborators: Defence Science and Technology Group
Primary Contact:
Len Sciacca (len.sciacca@unimelb.edu.au)
Keywords: optimisation; sensor fusion; signal processing; signals and systems
Disciplines: Electrical & Electronic Engineering

The University of Melbourne and the Defence Science and Technology Group are collaborating on advanced signal processing and modelling of chemical and biological detectors for defence and national security.

Characterization and understanding of Chemical/biological detector responses are required for their effective deployment in a contaminated environment. Currently, a detector’s performance is typically assessed experimentally in a test chamber under limited (constant challenge concentration) test conditions which may vary significantly compared to a real-world environment. For example, a stationary sensor monitoring the near-field atmospheric release of hazardous materials or a sensor attached to a UAV interrogating chemical cloud will experience much more rapidly changing dynamic conditions for which the laboratory acquired assessment may not be adequate or reliable.

This project aims to develop a foundational framework and mathematical sensor response model (SRM)  to enable characterization, validation, and performance prediction of CBR detectors. The sensor response model will be developed using signals and systems theory and mathematical methods combined with aerosol physics. The models will be validated experimentally using a state-of-the-art dynamic sensor testbed recently developed at DST in Melbourne. This project will give candidates a deep appreciation of sensor design, modelling and optimisation. It will give solid foundations for future work and research.

Queensland Quantum Optics Laboratory Positions: PhDs in Quantum Nanoscience and Precision Measurement

The Queensland Quantum Optics Laboratory is looking for enthusiastic, talented and highly motivated students to join us for PhDs in quantum nanoscience and precision measurement.

Our laboratory takes the technologies in kilometre-scale gravitational wave observatories, miniaturises them onto a silicon chip and into an optical microscope, and applies them to answer both to fundamental questions in quantum nanoscience, and to build new technologies for sensing, communication, aerospace and biomedicine.

Our research ranging from the deepest fundamentals of quantum mechanics (how do superpositions collapse?, and how does quantum physics play with general relativity?), to the complex behaviour of quantum liquids controlled with laser light on a chip (How do quantum vortices move?, and how does quantum turbulence work?), to the development of next generation quantum technologies such as biological microscopes that operate beyond the limits of classical physics, to exquisitely precise sensors that could enable the next generation of magnetic imaging (MRI/MEG), communications and navigation technologies.

We have PhD positions open in a range of areas including:

· quantum microscopy,

· superfluid quantum devices and dynamics,

· nanomechanical computing,

· imaging motor molecules and their living dynamics within cells, and

· precision magnetometry, ultrasound and inertial sensing.

Our laboratory is a positive environment, full of people seeking to make a difference to both our understanding of the world around us and to future technologies. We have longstanding collaborations with partners including NASA and Lockheed Martin, seeking to take our research into applications.
