Qualification Details

To be admitted to postgraduate education (Chapter 7, 39 § Swedish Higher Education Ordinance), the applicant must have basic eligibility in accordance with either of the following:

  • passed a second cycle degree (for example a master's degree),
  • completed course requirements of at least 240 higher education credits, of which at least 60 second-cycle higher education credits, or
  • acquired, in some other way within or outside the country, substantially equivalent knowledge
  • Master’s degree in electrical engineering or applied physics

In addition to the above, there is also a mandatory requirement for English equivalent to English B/6, read more here


In order to succeed as a doctoral student at KTH you need to be goal oriented and persevering in your work. During the selection process, candidates will be assessed upon their ability to:

  • independently pursue his or her work
  • collaborate with others,
  • have a professional approach and
  • analyse and work with complex issues.
  • The ideal candidate has expertise in nanofabrication, photonics, cryogenics and microwave circuits. Candidates with experience in some but not all of these will be considered.

After the qualification requirements, great emphasis will be placed on personal competency.

Target degree: Doctoral degree

About the Project

Third-cycle subject: Physics specialization Optics and photonics

Chip-based quantum optical circuits has radically impacted on the way we process quantum information and perform complex experiments. The applications where these circuits are predicted to enable quantum supremacy are numerous including communication, sensing, and cryptography to name a few. Integration of optical circuits provides means of miniaturization to efficiently combine elements of the quantum network on-chip.  Over the recent years a new class of hybrid quantum photonic systems has emerged, that overcomes the limitations of monolithic approaches to realize more complex quantum systems

Supervision: The doctoral student will be supervised by Associate Professor Ali Elshaari.
