Quantum Entanglement Dynamics

Supervisor(s)

Contact Dr Arend G. Dijkstra to discuss this project further informally.                 

Project description

Quantum entanglement is an essential ingredient for the construction of many quantum devices. However, if a system is in contact with an environment, it is not a static but a time dependent property. The goal of this project is to investigate the dynamics of entanglement in complex environments. Processes such as sudden death and rebirth of entanglement will be studied. To connect with experiment, you will also calculate observables.

Entry requirements

Applications are invited from candidates with or expecting a minimum of a UK upper second class honours degree (2:1), and/or a Master's degree in physics or a similar relevant subject such as (but not limited to) mathematics or engineering.

If English is not your first language, you must provide evidence that you meet the University's minimum English Language requirements.

How to apply

Formal applications for research degree study should be made online through the university's website. Please state clearly in the research information section that the PhD you wish to be considered for is 'Quantum Entanglement Dynamics' as well as  Dr Arend G. Dijkstra as your proposed supervisor.

We welcome scholarship applications from all suitably-qualified candidates, but UK black and minority ethnic (BME) researchers are currently under-represented in our Postgraduate Research community, and we would therefore particularly encourage applications from UK BME candidates. All scholarships will be awarded on the basis of merit.
