Teaching & PhD




General physics : quanta

This course is an introduction to quantum mechanics. Starting from its historical development, the course covers the notions of quantum complementarity and uncertainty, the measurement process, the Schrödinger equation, and elements of atomic and molecular physics.

Quantum physics I

The objective of this course is to familiarize the student with the concepts, methods and consequences of quantum physics.

Quantum Computing

After introducing the foundations of classical and quantum information theory, and quantum measurement, the course will address the theory and practice of digital quantum computing, covering fundamental and advanced topics such as recent quantum algorithms and the theory of quantum error correction.
