Project Level: PhD

This applied PhD project will aim to experimentally realise low-density ring-trapped ultracold atom clouds for improved rotation sensing. It also aims to benchmark the scaling of rotation sensitivity with system size, focusing on emerging and established approaches to rotation sensing at UQ.

This scholarship is funded by the Defence Science Technology group, as a continuation of their Next-Generation Quantum Technologies program at UQ. In addition to networking and career opportunities in defence, the student awarded this scholarship will also be a member of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems (EQUS), which has many career development opportunities for its HDR students, in addition to those offered by the Graduate School at the University of Queensland.
