Quantum sensing with optical fibre systems
We are seeking candidates for a post-doc position funded by the European Commission in the framework of a large research project that involves 34 partner organisations from 8 European countries. The position will start approximately by June-Jule 2023 and lasts 2 years. The research will focus on quantum-enhanced optical fibre sensors to realize new systems able to detect and quantify vibrations, deformations, and rotations caused by ground movements and accelerations with ultra-high performance. It also involves developing sensing architectures that enable highly accurate navigation capabilities. The purpose of this activity is to enhance the performance of fibre-optic sensors taking advantage of quantum technology, which can improve their resolution and sensitivity beyond current limits.
