Recruitment of one Junior Research Fellow (JRF) in the cluster project under the National Mission on Quantum Enabled Science and Technology (DST), Govt. of India

Ref. No. DST/ICPS/QuST/Theme-2/2019/General

The Laboratory for Nano-scale Optics and Meta-materials (www.iitrpr.ac.in/LaNOM), Department of Physics, IIT Ropar is interested to hire two Junior Research Fellows (JRF) to work in the cluster project for a duration of three years under the National Mission on Quantum Enabled Science and Technology, Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt. of India.

Project title: Nanophotonic control on the emission properties of color centers in nanodiamonds for quantum optical applications

The project involves the experimental studies of the spontaneous emission from nitrogen-vacancy centers (NV), modified using nanophotonics structures. The JRF will design and build state-of-the-art optical experiments to measure the emission in both frequency and time domain. We are also interested to study the generation and characterization of single photon emission from NV centers at suitable conditions.

PS: Since the project is a part of a cluster project, the JRF’s would have the opportunity to interact and collaborate with many research groups across India. The selected JRF candidates may be permitted to register for the PhD program as per the existing institute rules.

1.      Fellowship, HRA, and Contingences: As per DST rules
