at ORAU Workforce Solutions

Date Posted: 12/23/2018

Opportunity Description

The United States Army Research Laboratory (ARL) seeks experimental and theoretical scientists for research in the general area of quantum networks. Experimental research focuses on creation, manipulation of entangled photonic states and entanglement manipulation and characterization. It includes fundamental properties of communication channels enabling quantum communication; loss and decoherence in quantum state transfer; entanglement distribution over channel of various physical implementations; fundamental and technological performance limitations of quantum networks. Theoretical research aims at functionalities of quantum networks for Army-relevant operations that are unattainable by classical systems. It includes theories and models aimed at understanding quantum-network phenomena, network protocols, algorithms and architectures; techniques and methods that enable the design and characterization of quantum networks; managing protocols for efficient entanglement routing, control and manipulation; defining and characterizing network metrics.
