Teaching & PhD



PhD Programs

Doctoral Program in Physics

Doctoral Program in Photonics


General physics : quanta

The lecture introduces the basic concepts of quantum physics by means of experiences and relevant theories (photoelectric effect, etc.)

Quantum physics II

The aim of this course is to introduce the concepts, methods and consequences of quantum physics. In particular, the angular momentum, perturbation theory, many-particle systems, quantum correlations (entanglement), open quantum systems, symmetries and invariance laws, will be addressed

Quantum Information and 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.

Advanced Topics in Quantum Sciences and Technologies

This course provides an in-depth treatment of the latest experimental and theoretical topics in quantum sciences and technologies, with a focus on quantum sensing, quantum optics, cold atoms, and the theory of quantum measurements and open dissipative quantum systems.
