In this school, world-renowned experts on the quantum mechanical coupling of light and matter using micro- and nanophotonics components will give lectures, starting at an introductory level and leading up to problems of current research. The tutorial nature of the courses makes them particularly suited for advanced students at the Diplom/M.Sc. level as well as PhD students.

Physicists in Israel are the first to entangle five photons in a NOON state – the superposition of two extreme quantum states. Unlike previous schemes for creating such states, the researchers claim that their new technique can entangle an arbitrarily large number of photons – so called “high-NOON states”. This could be good news for those developing quantum metrology techniques because high-NOON states could be used to improve the precision of a range of different measurements.
