Postdoc position: Circuit QED for Optomechanics

In this project, you will use the tools of circuit QED to build a “millikelvin” quantum optics table in our dilution fridge and explore new regimes of microwave optomechanics. By combing qubits and single photon sources and single photon detectors with microwave optomechanics, you will create and program non-classical quantum states of the motion of a mechanical drum. The experiments you will perform will allow you to create large mechanical quantum superpositions, and explore the possibility of using mechanical resonators as a quantum transducer for mapping quantum information from the microwave to the optical domain.

To apply, please send a motivation letter and CV to Dr. Gary Steele <>.

MEP and BEP projects

We are always looking for motivated students looking to do a Masters (MEP) or Bachelors (BEP) thesis project. Contact Gary for more information and to check availability of projects.

Note that Masters and Bachelors projects are only available to students already enrolled in a Bachelors or Masters program at a university in the Netherlands. For information about enrolling for the Bachelors or Masters program at TU-Delft, please consult the TU-Delft homepage.
