The Department of Physics in the Faculty of Science is looking for a full-time (100%) doctoral scholarship holder in the field of computational materials physics
The vacancy is situated within a FWO fundamental research project entitled Hybrid spin-charge quantum systems based of single point defects in diamond : Combined theoretical and experimental approach .
Individual point defects in diamond crystals belong to an important class of quantum systems denoted as solid-state qubits.
The experimental partner in this project aims to realize a novel type of qubit a charge-state solid qubit - using the transition between the different charge states of the same defect.
To devise the mechanisms of such charge state transitions we will use predictive ab initio calculations to characterize the energy levels of different (charged) point defects in diamond.
