- What properties of a quantum system of collections of quantum systems gave rise of uniquely quantum behaviour?
- What are the methods of quantifying such properties?
- Can these properties be thought of resources that we can harness to deliver new quantum protocols?
- Can we explain what notions of non-classicality underly certain uniquely quantum phenomena that do not appear to have entanglement?
Students will explore the rapidly developing areas of quantum coherence, discord and other general resources theories and their applications, and study their operational benefits in suitable settings. The project is primarily theoretical, but may involve collaboration with experimental groups.
The number of research fellows out number the number of students at QuSCI, and thus incoming PhD students can expect plenty of support.In additional students will also enjoy opportunities to engage with top international experts both the Centre for Quantum Technologies and the Complexity Institute.
- Possess a 1st Class Honours in Physics, Mathematics or Computer Science.
- Taken courses in advanced quantum mechanics and/or quantum information, with a grade of at least an A.
- Possess excellent oral and written communication skills (a competitive GRE score, together with TOEFL or ELTS is required for students where the language of instruction is not English).
In addition, the following qualities are highly preferred
- Prior research experience in quantum information or quantum computing, with working knowledge of quantum information theory (entanglement, quantum circuits). Existing knowledge of discord, coherence, quantum optics and/or continous variable quantum information is a big plus.
- A GPA at 3.7/4.0 or equivalent.
