PhD position in Leiden, Van Exter group: Cavity-enhanced quantum optics with single emitters

We will build a tunable optical cavity to enhance the light-matter interaction of single emitters, in order to increase their performance as single-photon sources and to enable their use in quantum gates.


The flexibility of the open cavity system enables studies of various single emitters, ranging from semiconductors quantum dots to organic molecules in thin layers and local defects in 2D van-der-Waals materials.
