Theoretical study of a single quantum dot in a photonic wire : basics and applications to quantum information processing
Offer N°: 13481
Artificial atoms coupled to a one dimensional (1D) photonic system are known as « 1D-atoms ». Experimentally, 1D atoms can for instance be fabricated by placing a single semiconductor quantum dot in a photonic nanowire. The optical properties of 1D atoms display a unique sensitivity to the presence of a single photon, which makes them very attractive in view of the development of quantum photonic devices, such as logical gates or single photon transistors.
Spin manipulation by microwave pulses in graphene-based lateral spin-valves
Offer N°: 13479
Spin manipulation in carbon-based materials, especially graphene, is much more interesting for spin logic than the traditional metals and semiconductors. Indeed, due to weak spin-orbit and hyperfine couplings, carbon materials possess very long spin relaxation distances: spin currents have thus been shown to travel macroscopic distances in graphene and carbon nanotubes.
New molecular building blocks for steered self-assembly on gold for nanophotonics
Offer N°: 13477
This multidisciplinary project (organic synthesis, surface-confined supramolecular self-assemblies) deals with nanomaterials. The goal is the synthesis of molecular building-blocks (tectons) able to generate bidimensionnal supramolecular self-assembled monolayers on gold for potential applications in nanophotonics. Here, original tectons called Janus tectons which are dual-functionalized building blocks exposing two opposite faces (A and B) linked by a rigid spacer will be developed.
Wireless and Privacy: Device Free Motion Detection into the wild
Offer N°: 13475
Wireless networks are nowadays deployed everywhere. If their primary goals is to transmit
data, it seems possible to subvert radio waves for other purposes such as motion tracking or localization. During this thesis, we want to investigate how intrusive are the wireless indicators like the Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) and Link Quality Indicator (LQI). How much information on a person can be inferred from these indicators ?
