Course content

Exploration of quantum phenomena has recently led to extraordinary applications of quantum entanglement. The degree of control exerted over these systems is reflected in the term ‘quantum technology’, describing both experimental and theoretical developments in this area.

This course is for you if you’re interested in the wonders of quantum physics and have a desire to exploit its full power.

We cover:

  • ion-trap quantum processors
  • ion-photon interfaces for the projected quantum internet
  • quantum simulators
  • superconducting quantum circuits
  • devices for quantum-enhanced metrology.
