"Spicy world of NanoScience"
The Nano group is looking for a postdoctoral scientist to work on nanophysics at sub-mK temperatures. One of the goals of this work is to reach the ground state of mechanical motion in nanoelectromechanical systems operating around 100 MHz by immersing them into superfluid He3. Furthermore, the interaction of the mechanical resonator with the superfluid quantum vacuum will be investigated. Besides microwave experiments on the resonators, the candidate is expected to take part in the development of the cooling techniques needed for these investigations, as well as conceiving schemes for investigations of quantum tunneling in macroscopic mechanical systems.
