Fully-funded PhD studentship, available in the Department of Physics at the University of Sussex, UK.
The candidate will work on the theoretical description of emergent phenomena like superfluidity, quantum phase transitions and symmetry breaking in ultracold atoms and trapped ions. In particular, we will explore how those systems present quantum phases that are present in materials in the solid-state, such that they can be considered to be analogical quantum simulators of quantum many-body models. We will also study applications of complex phases in quantum simulators to build ultra-precise quantum sensors.
Due to funding restrictions, the studentship is open to UK and EU resident students only.
The project will be supervised by Dr Diego Porras.
