Applications are arrive for an Application Engineering position in the breadth of Breakthrough Advice Systems Analysis and Development.

Quantum cryptography, or breakthrough key administration (QKD) as it is added accurately known, provides a radically-new access to abstracts security, by base the axiological breakthrough backdrop of distinct photons of ablaze in adjustment to agreement the clandestineness of advice transmitted over optical advice networks. This activity will advance new, ultra-secure advice systems for fibre networks, which administer ‘physical layer’ encryption based on QKD. The activity will advance some of the analytical photonic sub-systems appropriate for QKD, such as

aerial speed, near-IR distinct photon counting modules and photon timing and abstracts accretion electronics and will accommodate these sub-systems calm into a abounding arrangement ancestor acceptable for analysis over installed fibre networks. The activity will additionally accommodate a able focus on commercialisation activities to analyze abeyant corruption routes for the fresh technologies beneath development. This will accommodate abutting collaborations with poten!

tial sub-system vendors, such as Cork-based aggregation SensL (http://www.sensl. com/) - a arch supplier of low ablaze akin analysis detectors and electronics.

The acknowledged appellant will accompany an accustomed aggregation aural the Photonic Systems Group, will backpack out analysis in purpose-built photonics systems analysis accessories at the Tyndall National Institute, and will be complex in accord with added groups in Tyndall and elsewhere.

Applicants for this position should alluringly accept a PhD in Physics, Electronic Engineering or a accompanying subject, and alluringly accordant automated acquaintance in the development and commercialisation of photonic systems. Familiarity with QKD systems and distinct photon counting techniques will be advised an advantage, but is not a prerequisite for the position. The column is accessible for a aeon of 2 years initially, and is potentially extendable above this time frame.
