Postdoc of Integrated quantum optomechanical devices
Niels Bohr Institute
Faculty of Science
University of Copenhagen

Optomechanical devices have attracted intense interests in quantum technologies in recent years. There are many different optomechanical devices featured with different merits. This project is going to include the concept of topology to the design of integrated optomechanical devices. The major goals are, but are not limited to minimization of structure disorder’s influence on devices’ performance, improvement of optomechanical coupling, and pushing the optomechanical devices for quantum transduction. The device material platform is planned to be gallium phosphide or others if elligible. Applicants with experimental experience in integrated optical or mechanical devices are encouraged to apply. Specific experiences in nanofabrication, optical or mechanical simulation, and topological theory will be appreciated.

The postdoc’s duties will include research within integrated quantum optomechanical devices as well as teaching. The post may also include performance of other duties.
