New positions for the program

1 June 2011
Faculty of Physics, Astronomy, and Applied Computer Science of the Jagiellonian University within the TEAM programme project entitled "Coherenly Prepared Media - novel properties and applications" announces three PhD positions and three student positions. The PhD positions are open in

  • Coherently prepared ultra-cold media
  • The project aims at studies of new magneto-optical properties of cold atoms with the perspective of establishing new ways of controlling quantum states of atomic samples. One possible... more
  • Applications of Coherently Prepared Media
  • The initial focus of this project will be to develop and exploit ultra-sensitive magnetic-field sensors based on optically prepared atomic media. Given a suitably qualified candidate, the later stages of this project may also include opportunities to investigate possible application of such devices to magnetometry, geo- and astrophysics, and medical and bio-diagnostics... more
  • New Materials for Coherently Prepared Media
  • New materials will be tested for their possible applications as coherently prepared media. One possible material are hollow fibers filled with atoms. In this way, on one hand, one may use known methods to create quantum state superpositions in atoms and use them for tailoring the medium's properties... more

People interested in participation in the project, please send us your research profile to prof. W. Gawlik by June 25th, 2011
Note that no MSc diploma is required for application to the project. If qualified for the project the applicant need to finilize his/her diploma project by September 30th, 2011, i.e. by the time of official joining the project.
