Quantum computation is the man on the moon goal of the current second quantum revolution. How will we get there? Join us in our mission to turn everyday silicon into a quantum computing wonder material! To make this dream come true, we have partnered with the leading semiconductor industry aiming at high-volume manufacturing of Si qubits. The role of the post-doc in this project is to study the mobility-limiting mechanisms, valley splitting, and spin-orbit interaction in strained silicon/germanium quantum wells. This work contributes to enhancing Si qubit performance and sets the groundwork for developing Ge spin qubits.
A PhD degree in Physics is required to apply for this position. Experience with quantum transport at cryogenic temperatures is essential, experience in micro/nanofabrication is desirable. Applications should contain a single .zip file (yourname.zip) with the following documents (all as PDFs): CV (3 page max), motivation letter (1 page), a list of potential references.
Delft University of Technology (the TU Delft) is a multifaceted institution offering education and carrying out research in the technical sciences at an internationally recognised level. Education, research and design are strongly oriented towards applicability. The TU Delft develops technologies for future generations, focusing on sustainability, safety and economic vitality. At the TU Delft you will work in an environment where technical sciences and society converge. The TU Delft comprises eight faculties, unique laboratories, research institutes and schools.
QuTech is an advanced research centre for quantum computing and quantum internet, a collaboration founded by the TU Delft and TNO. QuTech addresses scientific challenges as well as engineering issues in a joint centre of know-how with industrial partners.
Within the Scappucci Lab at QuTech, we design, realise, and study confined electron and hole systems in strained silicon/germanium quantum wells and explore the capabilities of these materials for quantum computation. We are part of the Fault Tolerant Quantum Computing scientific roadmap at QuTech, focusing on spin qubits.
