Optical engineer in experimental quantum computing with trapped ions
PSI Quantum computing center
Zurich
vor 2 Tg.

Job description

  • Development and improvements of the imaging systems required for the detection of ion strings with cameras and / or photomultiplier tubes
  • Development and maintenance of fiber-based / free-space optical beam paths for the control of individual ions within a string stored in ultra-high vacuum chambers or cryostats
  • Design of planar-fabricated nanophotonic waveguides integrated with surface-electrode ion traps
  • Work closely with a team of researchers and other research groups at PSI to generate a collaborative environment and ensure project success
  • This position offers early-career candidates a path to embed themselves into the rapidly emerging field of quantum technology, synthesizing interesting engineering with the latest physics, and provides exposure to a wide range of challenges and learning opportunities in a fast-moving research setting.

    Collaboration with and mentoring by more senior team members will be part of the working environment.

    Your profile

  • Experience with free-space and fiber-based optics including acousto-optic and electro-optic modulators
  • Experience with tolerancing, assigning technical requirements on optical parts and drawing preparation
  • Knowledge of simulation software such as ZEMAX or COMSOL
  • Experience of integrated optics and packaging
  • Because the candidate will be working with students and researchers in a rapidly-growing field, initiative, creativity, and excellent problem-solving skills are highly desirable.

    The person must possess excellent English communication skills; German knowledge is favorable, but not required. Recent ETH / EPFL graduates are encouraged to apply.
