IFIMAC offers a three-year PhD position within the AtomEliX and QNanoLight consortium (Profs. Juan José Palacios and Francisco J. García-Vidal) to work on theory of two-dimensional materials when strongly coupled to light. This consortium aims at understanding the optical response of crystal monolayers under either strong illumination in the classical regime or in the strong coupling limit originated from quantum vacuum fluctuations. We look for motivated students generically interested in Condensed Matter Physics theory and Quantum Optics aiming to engage in cutting-edge research.
Specific topics and keywords include van der Waals materials, electronic structure quantum geometry, topological materials, non-linear optical effects, and cavity quantum electrodynamics.
Those who are interested please contact: Prof. Juan José Palacios (email@example.com) or Prof. Francisco J. García-Vidal (firstname.lastname@example.org).
