We are constantly looking for motivated Bachelor, Master and PhD students as well as PostDocs with interests in the theoretical and numerical analysis of light matter interaction in micro- and nanooptical systems. If you would like to join our group while working in the context of any of our research activities, please do not hesitate to contact us.

In particular we currently offer Master theses on:


Master thesis on Optimal measurements for phase estimation with a noisy Mach-Zehnder interferometer

Although an ultimate quantum Cramér-Rao bound on the precision of estimation error has been investigated for various quantum metrological scenarios, the optimal measurement that reaches the ultimate limit has rarely been identified. Such issue also applies to the case of optical interferometric schemes for the gravitational wave detection. In this Master thesis project, we aim to look for optimal measurement settings for phase estimation with a noisy Mach-Zehnder interferometer, applicable to one of the typical gravitational wave detectors. Experimentally implementable optimal or nearly optimal setup will also be explored. The student will learn lots of theoretical techniques for quantum metrology, and will also get a chance to address one of utmost important issues in quantum technology, whose significance arises simultaneously over the world.
