Available student project - Nonlinear phenomena with matter-wave Solitons

Research fields

  • Quantum Devices and Technology
  • Quantum Science and Applications

Project details

This project aims to study matter-wave soliton interactions and propagation - including tunnelling, collisions and interferometry. We have a well established experiment, with a pipeline of experiments waiting to be built and run. This project is at the forefront of the highly competitive field of nonlinear quantum physics. This project will push an experimental (or theoretical) PhD candidate to their intellectual and creative limits. Luckily, you will have the support of both a dedicated experimental and theoretical postdoc to help in your journey.

With excellent funding, many opportunities for travel to present your work, and a friendly team in which to work, perhaps this cutting edge project is for you?
