İskender Yalçınkaya

I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Quantum dynamics, optics and information (Q3) group at Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering of Czech Technical University in Prague, since March 2017. We address various important open questions in the study of both quantum and classical random walks, focusing both on theoretical investigation and experimental results.

Research Interests

Quantum theory: walks, open systems, algorithms, transport, correlations.

Previous Employment

Sabancı University, İstanbul, Turkey - Postdoctoral researcher
(October 2016 - March 2017)

We considered various subjects in colloboration with Prof. Z. Gedik, including the Wigner function representation of quantum states, mutually unbiased bases, non-classical correlations and an application of quantum permutation algorithm.

Sarayköy Nuclear Research and Training Center, Ankara, Turkey - Trainee
(June 2009 - August 2009)

I had experience on ESR dosimetry, particularly food irradiation detection; chronological dating with thermoluminescence and optically stimulated luminescence; efficiency calibration of gama-ray spectrometer; specification of neutron flux from a given source; half-life measurement of unstable nuclei; material characterizing via thermal analysis methods.
