Introduction to Quantum Technologies

The Second Quantum Revolution is unfolding now, exploiting the enormous advancements in our ability to detect and manipulate single quantum objects and triggering the development of the different Quantum Technologies. New perspectives and opportunities are opening for researchers in any scientific discipline.  The course Introduction to Quantum Technologies, issued by the PhD program in Physics and Astrophysics, in collaboration with the European Project QTEdu, is intended to give an introduction to the different quantum technologies to PhD students attending any scientific PhD program, not only in physics.

The course will be held in English at distance in April-May 2021 once a week.

To attend the course, please contact the coordinator Prof. Giuliano Benenti:  giuliano.benenti@uninsubria.it

Supporting material to the lectures will be made available in advance, but preliminary self-study is not mandatory.
