ML4Q | PhD position in quantum frequency conversion

The Quantum Metrology research group at the University of Bonn offers a PhD position in the field of quantum frequency conversion.
Within the Cluster of Excellence “Matter and Light for Quantum Computing” (ML4Q), researchers are currently developing the foundations of a future quantum computing network. Such a network consists of various platforms, which are interconnected by photon exchange. The frequency of these photons needs to be matched to the resonance of the target device, without losing the fragile quantum information: this is the challenge of quantum frequency conversion.
