Technische Universität Dresden (TUD), as a University of Excellence, is one of the leading and most dynamic research institutions in the country. Founded in 1828, today it is a globally oriented, regionally anchored top university as it focuses on the grand challenges of the 21st century. lt develops innovative solutions for the world's most pressing issues. In research and academic programs, the university unites the natural and engineering sciences with the humanities, social sciences and medicine. This wide range of disciplines is a special feature, facilitating interdisciplinarity and transfer of science to society. As a modern employer, it offers attractive working conditions to all employees in teaching, research, technology and administration. The goal is to promote and develop their individual abilities while empowering everyone to reach their full potential. TUD embodies a university culture that is characterized by cosmopolitanism, mutual appreciation, thriving innovation and active participation. For TUD diversity is an essential feature and a quality criterion of an excellent university. Accordingly, we welcome all applicants who would like to commit themselves, their achievements and productivity to the success of the whole institution.

At the Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Institute of Circuits and Systems, the Chair of Measurement and Sensor System Technique (Prof. Jürgen Czarske) offers a position as

Research Associate / Postdoc (m/f/x)
Quantum Multimode Fiber Communication
(subject to personal qualification employees are remunerated according to salary group E 13 TV-L)

starting as soon as possible. The position comprises 75% of the fulltime weekly hours and is limited until July 31, 2024. The period of employment is governed by the Fixed Term Research Contracts Act (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz-WissZeitVG).

Single-mode fiber optic networks are the backbone of the global Internet infrastructure. However, multimode fibers provide additional channels for data transmission but suffer from modal crosstalk scattering. We investigate structured light to correct scattering towards space division multiplexing and new approaches in information security.

Tasks: The focus is on research into innovative concepts for light control using multimode fibers, which enable (de)multiplexing of quantum states via the spatial degrees of freedom (audits). For this purpose, spatial modulation techniques with single and entangled photons are used. Your activities include the realization of multimode fiber system, the characterization of the light transmission properties, the implementation of quantum key distribution and the transfer to applications.

Requirements: above-average university and, if applicable, PhD degree in the subject physics or related areas; ability and willingness to work independently and conceptually in a dynamic team; curiosity in research at interfaces of sciences; interest in practice-oriented, interdisciplinary cooperation with partners from research and industry; knowledge of software development and digital signal processing. Previous knowledge of optics, quantum optics, MATLAB or Python is advantageous.

Technical questions will be answered with pleasure: Mr. Stefan Rothe,
