Descripción de la actividad

The Summer School on Quantum Technologies is primarily oriented to Master and PhD Students. We aim to provide a vision of quantum technologies with focus on various platforms like superconducting circuits, trapped atoms and semiconductors, as well as an overview of applications in quantum  computing, simulation and communication. The summer school's lecturers, with a unique  combination of complementary backgrounds, will discuss the  state-of-the-art in their respective fields as well as an outlook for the near- and long-term future. Students will also attend a practical session on quantum computing, as well as a round-table on the future of quantum technology.

 

Students should have a degree in Physics or a related subject. It is essential that students have a solid basis in Quantum Physics. Ideally students will also have some knowledge on Quantum Optics and Solid-State Physics. Students with a degree in Chemistry, Mathematics, or Engineering may also attend the school, as long as they have the required quantum physics background. The school may also be useful for post-docs or researchers seeking a first contact with the field of quantum technologies. 

 

By the end of the school, students will have acquired a wide vision of the current state of quantum technologies which they can use as guide for their own research. They will also be able to understand the scientific challenges and professional opportunities in this exciting field.
