This taught MSc course offers a comprehensive overview of the emerging applications of quantum physics to information processing and quantum coherent devices. The course syllabus includes important topics such as:
- Quantum Information Science. This teaches how quantum phenomena may be used to process information in novel ways that outperform existing information processing technologies.
- Experimental Quantum and Atom Optics. This topic covers the key techniques used to generate and manipulate quantum coherence in real experimental systems.
- Introduction to Quantum Optics and Open quantum systems. This topic will teach principles that can be used to describe all quantum coherent devices.
The courses and research project will be under the guidance of the Quantum Information and Coherence researchers at the department of Physics at the University of Strathclyde, including Dr. Aidan Arnold, Dr. Paul Griffin, Dr. John Jeffers, Prof. Stefan Kuhr, Dr. Daniel Oi, Prof. Erling Riis, and Dr. Alison Yao.
