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. Assessment is split equally between the project and modules. Your project culminates in a dissertation (with a contribution from a research talk). The modules are assessed by problem sets, with either open-notes tests or unseen examinations. You’ll attend research seminars and contribute to your group’s discussions of the latest journal papers.
