The Director of the Center for Theoretical Physics PAS invites applications for Post-doc position at the CTP PAS, financed from the project "Self-testing protocols for multipartite quantum states"

Project is carried out within the First Team programme of the Foundation for Polish Science.



Project leader: Dr. hab. Remigiusz Augusiak




Project description:

The rapid development of quantum technologies creates an urgent need to design methods to certify whether quantum devices really operate in a non-classical way. The main aim of this project is to respond to this need. We will provide efficient and robust protocols of self-testing—a device-independent certification method—for multipartite entangled quantum states. To reach this goal we will study and explore the phenomena of Bell nonlocality and entanglement in the multipartite scenario.

The project will be realized in collaboration with ICFO – the Institute of Photonic Sciences in Barcelona (the groups of profs. A. Acin and M. Lewenstein) and National Centre for Quantum Information in Gdańsk (the group of prof. M. Horodecki).
