We have an opening for an ERC funded Postdoc, for 2 years extendable to 4 years. Short blurb:
The Levitated Nanophysics group at King’s is a new research team investigating the boundary between quantum physics and nanotechnology. In this role, you will shape the new field of rotational optomechanics, with opportunities to develop technology as well as explore fundamental physics.
Full details, and information on how to apply, can be found here.
Lots of progress in the new lab!
Optical trap for levitating nanorods. Good work Yanhui!
Ion trap for levitating microparticles, with pick-up electrodes for monitoring particle motion. Nice work Katie and Muddassar!
Registration is now open for the Levitated Optomechanics conference in Bad Honef (DE), 29th July – 1st Aug 2019.
There is no conference fee for this meeting, but there are limited places.
Very pleased that our theoretical proposal on electrical control and cooling of levitating nanoparticles has been published in Quantum Science & Technology!
Quantum Sci. Technol. 4 024003 (2019)
We are very happy to welcome Dr. Muddassar Rashid to the group, whose main focus will be the levitated electromechanics project.
Our really exciting proposal on testing quantum physics using the rotation of massive objects has been published in New Journal of Physics.
This work has also attracted the journalists at Phys.org.
We have a position for a postdoc to work on rotational optomechanics. the aim is to control the rotation of levitated nanoparticles, to study fundamental quantum physics and develop new technology. You can apply here:
