About the program "Materials
and Concepts for Quantum Information Processing":
The Departments of Physics and Computer Sciences at the University of Dortmund
offer several grants for Ph.D. or
Postdoctoral studies within the program
Materials and Concepts for Quantum Information Processing
which is funded by the German National Science Foundation.
Within 3-year Ph.D.-projects (since October 1st, 2001),
interested candidates can participate in a topical research program on quantum computing in
which different research teams of experimental and theoretical physics and computer science are
involved. Projects are planned in the field of nuclear magnetic resonance, optics of
semiconductor quantum dots and spin systems, preparation of nanocrystals and nanostructures,
theory of spin relaxation, decoherence in solids, and algorithms of quantum computing.
