Available student project - Quantum Squeezing Atomic Ensembles

Research fields

  • Quantum Devices and Technology
  • Theoretical Physics

Project details

The aim of this project is to explore thoeretically a variety of methods to quantum squeeze the noise on an atomic enemble  and it to assess the enhancement of the senisitivity of a variety of quantum sensors under realistic conditions. We will calculate the maximum expected squeezing for quantum non-demolition, one axis twisting and twist and turn squeezing under accessible experimental conditions. The aim of the project is to make recommendations on the best quantum squeezing method tailored to specific quantum sensors.

Required background

This project is appropriate for 3rd year students enroled in the physics major.

This research project can be tailored to suit students of the following type(s)
  • 3rd year special project
  • PhB (2nd or 3rd year)
  • Honours project
  • Phd or Masters
  • Vacation scholar
