The goal of this project is to detect low-energy photons by taking advantage of graphene’s low heat capacity and quantum localization of charge carriers at the Dirac point. We’ll look into developing a ‘click’ single proton detection system for microwave protons down to 10 GHz, which is typical of superconducting quantum bits’ energy range. Applicants who have experience with graphene device microfabrication and DC/RF measurements are encouraged to apply.
About the Scholarship:
Chalmers University of Technology was founded in Gothenburg in 1829 as an industrial school called “Chalmersska Slojdeskolan” to provide education to disadvantaged children. It was named after William Chalmers, a prominent supporter. Carl Palmstedt, an industrialist, was named the organization’s first president. The Accreditation Council for Entrepreneurial and Engaged Universities has designated the university as a “Engaged University” (ACEEU). The European University Association (EUA) and the Conference of European Schools for Advanced Engineering Education and Research are both members of the organization (CESAER). The institution currently has 13 departments dedicated to various educational fields. There are also a number of centers, national competency centers, and other centers at the university that collaborate across typical departmental lines. In Gothenburg, Sweden, the university includes two campuses. Campus Johanneberg is the city area of Johannesburg’s oldest and largest campus. It focuses on civil engineering, materials science, and energy. Campus Lindholmen is located on Norra Alvstranden, just north of the Gota River, in one of the city’s most modern and quickly expanding neighborhoods. The neighborhood is teeming with cutting-edge businesses in the fields of mobile communications, intelligent transportation, and digital media. Both campuses include exceptional academic, residential, and eating facilities, as well as first-rate infrastructure. The Onsala space observatory, which provides equipment for radio astronomy research, is also housed in the university’s Department of Space, Earth, and Environment. Architecture, engineering, biology, chemistry, communication, science, material, physics, mathematics, space, management, mechanics, marine sciences, shipping, microtechnology, and nanoscience are among the postgraduate and graduate degree programs offered by the university. The institution employs 2744 people and has a student body of 10,000 people from more than 80 nations. It has partnerships with ETH Zurich in Switzerland, Trinity College in Dublin, the Polytechnic University of Milan in Italy, RWTH Aachen University in Germany, and the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, among others. These partnerships make it possible for students to participate in a variety of student exchange and study abroad programs. The university also encourages students’ professional development and provides them with various excellent job prospects. The university has over 60,000 alumni worldwide, including many well-known figures. Gustaf Dalen is a Nobel Prize-winning physicist who invented the Dalen light and the AGA cooker. Ludvig Strigeus is a well-known programmer who created popular programs such as BitTorrent, Spotify, and OpenTTD. Wingardh arkitektkontor is owned by Gert Wingardh, a successful architect. Leif Johansson is the chairman of AstraZeneca plc, as well as the former CEO and president of Volvo Group and Ericsson. Linn Berggren is best known for being a former member of the successful pop band Ace of Base. Peter Nordin is a well-known author and computer scientist. Jan Wareby is a senior vice president of Ericsson. Chalmers University of Technology and Science offers a broad range of technological and scientific degrees, from bachelor’s through master’s and doctoral degrees. When you study at Chalmers, you learn to think for yourself and to utilize engineering skills to solve problems in the future. We value your innovation and believe in the value of free thought, allowing you to put your own ideas to the test. We strive for a truly casual atmosphere with a non-hierarchical structure to encourage openness and cooperation between students and teachers.
Everything we do must include aspects of sustainability, entrepreneurship, and equality. We provide hands-on, collaborative experience through project-based assignments that focus on using theoretical knowledge to solve present and future problems. We have strong ties to a wide range of industry and social partners, ensuring that our research and education are always relevant to real-world problems and applications. Chalmers has strong ties to the corporate community, including local behemoths like Volvo, SKF, and AstraZeneca. You’ll hear from significant industry personalities in guest lectures and go on study tours to relevant workplaces. Around 40 master’s programs are available, all of which are taught exclusively in English. With a worldwide orientation that attracts students from over 60 countries, we prepare our master’s students for a truly international career.
