How will you contribute?

Consumption-based targets are goals that are set to reduce the carbon footprint associated with a country's consumption of goods and services, rather than its production. These targets are based on the observation that a significant portion of a country's carbon emissions are generated through the production of goods that are then consumed by that country's citizens or businesses. This is fundamentally different from the current accounting rules of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), with widely different implications, especially for high-income countries. Developing robust tools to estimate the future consumption-based environmental impacts of nations is key to increasing credibility in consumption-based decarbonization targets.

In project FRESCO (Future Evaluation of Sustainable Consumption), you will be in charge of reviewing existing GHG accounting techniques and frameworks, including methods relying on household consumption surveys, environmentally-extended multiregional input-output (EE-MRIO) databases, and on prospective modelling based on micro-economic techniques and integrated assessment model results. From this knowledge, you will be developing the mathematical framework for an assessment framework of future consumption-based policies, and its implementation as a software package, which will then be applied to several use cases (Sweden, Luxembourg, and other EU Member States).

In practice, you will be using various software tools (using the Python language) to manipulate input-output databases (from EXIOBASE) and adapt them to several families of scenarios including forecasts of energy mixes, industrial efficiencies, international trade, as well as final consumption patterns – using results from integrated assessment models (IAMs) and other energy system models (ESMs). Such an exercise requires extensive calibration, validation, and quality check, which requires good knowledge of balancing methods and uncertainty analysis. The main objective of the tool you will develop is to translate as accurately and robustly as possible policy decisions into scenario parameters for data-driven decision-making.

M-2308 PHD: QUANTUM INTERFERENCE BETWEEN SEMICONDUCTOR COLOUR CENTRES

Description

Temporary contract | 48 months (first contract of 14 months) | Belvaux

The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) is a Research and Technology Organization (RTO) active in the fields of materials, environment and IT. By transforming scientific knowledge into technologies, smart data and tools, LIST empowers citizens in their choices, public authorities in their decisions and businesses in their strategies.

You will be part of the LIST Materials Research and Technology department, where you will carry out your work in the Quantum Materials Group, led by Dr. Florian Kaiser.


Context

Quantum technologies have the potential to revolutionise the world in many aspects. Quantum colour centres in in wide bandgap semiconductors have recently emerged as a promising platform, since they can incorporate quantum systems, which can be scaled up by industrial processing.

Along these lines, we have recently shown that individual colour centres can be integrated into silicon carbide nanophotonic waveguides with little-to-no degradation of spin-optical coherences.

These finding define the strategy for developing a scalable quantum technology architecture.

Our strategy is to establish an on-chip photonic quantum communication link between two colour centres. The idea is to perform photonic interference experiments using on-chip beam-splitters, which enables direct entanglement generation between two separated colour centres. With this milestone demonstration, we strive to kickstart subsequent developments towards a truly scalable distributed quantum computing architecture.


Mission

The objective of this PhD thesis is to demonstrate photonic interference between two colour centres on a silicon carbide photonic chip. By characterising the quality of this interference for the first time, we will be able to clearly define the research direction towards scalable quantum computing architectures.

The initial part of this thesis comprises setting up our new optical cryostat platform, which is based on a combination of standard confocal microscopy, and direct fibre-to-chip coupling. In the second step, you will benefit from our ongoing activities towards quantum photonic silicon carbide chips in which we generate colour centres in waveguides and on-chip beam-splitters.

You will determine the ideal wavelength tuning mechanisms for colour centres, considering both electric tuning (Stark shift) and mechanical tuning (laser-induced strain). Subsequently, you will characterise these photonic quantum devices and identify suitable ones for the interference experiments between two colour centres. This then will allow you to implement on-chip two-photon interference between separated colour centres, including a demonstration of photon-mediated entanglement generation between two colour centres, i.e., the central building block of a distributed quantum computing architecture.

M-2309 PHD: QUANTUM COLOUR CENTRE GENERATION IN SEMICONDUCTOR SILICON CARBIDE

Description

Context

Quantum technologies have the potential to revolutionise the world in many aspects. Quantum colour centres in in wide bandgap semiconductors have recently emerged as a promising platform, since they can incorporate quantum systems, which can be scaled up by industrial processing.

Along these lines, we have recently discovered a new quantum colour centre in silicon carbide, the leading 3rd generation semiconductor. This colour centre is the stacking-fault divacancy, which shows outstanding spin qubit properties, even at room temperature, thus being the prime candidate for implementing low-cost quantum computing and quantum sensing.

These finding define the strategy for developing a scalable quantum technology architecture.

Our strategy is to integrate colour centres into nanophotonic silicon carbide chips at the wafer-scale. On the one side, this will allow us to integrate dozens to hundreds of qubit systems on one chip for quantum computing. On the other side, this will allow us to control dense ensembles of colour centres for high-accuracy quantum-enhanced magnetic field sensing in the perspective of bio-medical and oceanography research.


Mission

The objective of this PhD thesis is to maximise the efficiency of colour centre generation in nanophotonic waveguides. On the one side, studies on the generation of single colour centres will lead to a deterministic creation of individual spin qubits for quantum computing. On the other side, studies on generating dense ensembles of colour centres will lead to a comprehensive understanding of the ideal quantum sensor architecture, considering the interplay between signal strength and spin coherence times.

The initial part of this thesis is strongly related to colour centre generation in bulk silicon carbide crystals. You will generate colour centres based on ion implantation, which we can carry out with in-house tools, as well as in collaboration with Surrey University (UK). Then, you will carry out a large variety of thermal annealing studies and determine their suitability in subsequent confocal microscopy experiments, which provide the crucial information on the generation yield and qubit spin coherence times. At this point, you will also be able to benefit from our on-going activities on silicon carbide surface passivation, which intend to further improve spin coherence times.

Having established a deep knowledge on the ideal colour centre generation techniques, you will apply these techniques to our silicon carbide waveguides. This will result in fully integrated nanophotonic quantum colour centre devices, which you will use for demonstrator experiments in room-temperature quantum computing and quantum sensing. At the end of your thesis, you will have developed a reliable chip-based quantum technology platform, which has a high potential for industrial fabrication.

M-2437 POSTDOC: QUANTUM CONTROL OF NUCLEAR SPINS IN SILICON CARBIDE

Description

Temporary contract | 24 months | Belvaux

How will you contribute?

You will be part of the LIST Materials Research and Technology department, where you will carry out your work in the Quantum Materials Group, led by Dr. Florian Kaiser.


Context

Solid state colour centres are one of the leading platforms in quantum technology. A particularly interesting feature of spin-active colour centres is their ability to utilise naturally occurring nuclear spins as qubits, memories, and quantum registers. Most demonstrator experiments have been implemented with colour centres in diamond, a platform that is heavily challenged by scalability aspects.

The recent discovery of novel high-performance colour centres in semiconductor silicon carbide can induce a radical change. We and other groups have shown that divacancy centres near stacking-faults in silicon carbide show excellent photon count rates and spin contrast, even at room-temperature, features that enable the development of small room-temperature quantum computers based on a cheap semiconductor platform. Further, the di-atomic lattice of silicon carbide enables to significantly increase the number of controllable nuclear spins. Additionally, it is possible to implement new spin control techniques, which can drastically reduce the duration of two-qubit gates, thus solving the main issues of previous colour centre platforms.


Mission

The objective of this postdoc project is to control a local quantum computing registers based on nuclear spin qubits near stacking-fault divacancy centres. An application in the form of a quantum algorithm is also targeted, e.g., Grover’s search or quantum Fourier transform.

To maximise the number of controllable nuclear spins and the control fidelity, your tasks are:

-        Application of optimal control techniques, depending on the exact configuration of the nuclear spins.

-        Implementation of novel nuclear spin control techniques based on dynamically changing the offset magnetic field.

-        Implementation of single-shot readout of nuclear spins at room-temperature based on repetitive electron spin readout.

-        Co-supervision of PhD students.

-        Involvement in our ongoing projects from the national side (FNR), as well as the European side (Quantum Technology Flagship and QuantERA).

Context

Quantum technologies have the potential to revolutionise the world in many aspects. Quantum colour centres in in wide bandgap semiconductors have recently emerged as a promising platform, since they can incorporate quantum systems, which can be scaled up by industrial processing.

Along these lines, we have recently shown for the first time that individual colour centres can be integrated into silicon carbide nanophotonic waveguides to improve their optical efficiency. Another recent milestone experiment demonstrated that colour centres in bulky p-i-n diodes can be electrically tuned, stabilised, and read out.

These findings define the strategy for developing a scalable quantum technology architecture.

Our strategy is to combine both photonic and electric concepts on a nanoscale silicon carbide chip architecture. This will allow us to achieve an ultimate level of control on individual colour centres regarding all relevant quantum properties. The goal is to precisely adjust the individual properties of dozens of colour centres on a chip, e.g., in terms of their emission wavelength. This then maximise the number of operational quantum systems towards a deterministic use of devices, which is crucial for a large-scale quantum technology architecture.


Mission

The objective of your PhD thesis is to simulate and optimise the properties of quantum colour centres within electro-optic nanophotonic silicon carbide devices. This goal also comprises the experimental demonstration of these techniques on a chip-scale, which will define the turning point towards scalability of quantum technologies based on colour centres.

The initial part of this thesis investigates the design of waveguides, Bragg couplers, beam-splitters, photonic cavities, and other photonic structures, while considering the capabilities of our cleanroom fabrication team. Subsequent simulations investigate the application of additionally electric structures that operate in a tandem configuration with the photonic devices. You will be involved in testing these devices in the temperature range 0K to 300K, which will allow implementing a feedback cycle towards further optimisations.

The second step of this thesis includes simulations of the behaviour of nanoscopic p-i-n diodes in the temperature range 0K to 300K, highly localised generation of electric and magnetic fields, and potentially mechanical tuning mechanisms based on capacitor-like structures. Here it is crucial to ensure the compatibility with the nanophotonic devices. You will be involved in testing these devices across temperatures of 0K to 300K. Finally, you will implement several first-time demonstrator experiments with electro-optic nanophotonic silicon carbide chips. In particular, you will demonstrate that most of the colour centres within nanophotonic structures can be made operational thanks to electric tuning. This marks the central building block of a scalable quantum technology architecture.

How will you contribute?

The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) is seeking to recruit a PhD student to work on numerical simulations for ion beam based nano-analytics. This project is funded by the Luxembourg National Research Fund and builds upon unique expertise at LIST on developing novel methodologies and instruments for the chemical and elemental characterisation of samples at the nanoscale.

The characterisation of nano-sized materials in 3 dimensions with high resolution and good accuracy is important for various application areas. The development of next-generation batteries, solar cells, semiconductors, etc. relies on such information to improve device properties. The assessment of the toxicological effects of nanomaterials and nano-plastics on human health and the environment relies also on high-resolution chemical images to understand the interaction of such materials with their surroundings. Secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) based on continuous ion beam irradiation has proven that it is one of the most promising techniques to tackle the aforementioned challenges for metals and semiconductors. Yet, the characterisation of polymers and other organic materials is still difficult.

You are expected to develop a methodology based on Molecular Dynamics simulations to understand the fundamental processes occurring during the analysis of polymers. The developed models will be benchmarked using experimental data obtained by LIST’s unique FIB-SIMS instruments. Once validated, the methodology can also be applied to other materials.

Ferroelectrics continue to mesmerize at the nanoscale. By inducing electrostatic or mechanic frustration on them, we can unlock a rich tapestry of dipole structures, including skyrmions and vortex lattices. Such polar textures are a hot research topic and offer a dual promise. First, their origin and behaviour pose intriguing questions begging for answers. Second, they hold great potential for groundbreaking applications, from outstanding voltage amplifications to shaping the future of 6G technologies.

In the realm of ferroelectric ultrathin films, we are facing new challenges. Applying an electric bias transforms the dipole landscape, giving rise to confined nanoregions (bubbles) with a polarization opposite to their embedding matrix. These bubbles are electric versions of magnetic skyrmions, and are more than just a rarity; they constitute a novel quasiparticle in their own right. Recent experimental observations and successful manipulation attempts have set the stage. Yet, their dynamical behaviour remains a largely unexplored frontier. Only lately our group at LIST predicted that electric bubbles will display Brownian motion.

We offer you a 3-year postdoc position in the project “Bubblaced”, led by Hugo Aramberri (hugo.aramberri@list.lu), and focused on the modelling of electric bubble quasiparticles. You will join the ongoing work by Hugo Aramberri and Jorge Íñiguez-González (also involved in the project) on understanding these objects using second-principles atomistic simulation methods, focusing on their dynamics and possible ways to act on them. You will also benefit from interactions with other team members. Join us in exploring the fascinating world of electric bubbles!
