Scholarship Description:1-2 PhD Scholarship on Majorana fermions in the Center for Quantum Devices. The Center for Quantum Devices at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen has a 1-2 open Ph.D. positions in experimental condensed matter/device physics for the development of schemes to create, detect, and braid majorana fermions in networks made from semiconductor heterostructures, nanowires, and superconductors.The long-term goal of the project is to investigate topological protection of these topological quantum states and to realize topological quantum information processing systems.The project involves nanofabrication using electron-beam lithography, low-noise measurement at millikelvin temperatures, control of high-bandwidth electronics, data analysis, collaboration with theorists, writing and publishing. The candidate should have experience with device fabrication and low-temperature measurement.
Number of awards offered:1-2 awards are being offered.
Duration of award:The position is for three or four years and expected to lead to a PhD degree at University of Copenhagen.
