Hot Topics in Quantum Nanoscience
Course Content: We ask speakers from all over the world to present pedagogical introductions to their field with an emphasis on basic concepts. After an introductory lecture, the participants of this course will have an additional hour with the speaker during which they will discuss a recent paper and the holy grails of the field.
Exemplary topics are topological insulators, mesoscopic quantum gravity, string theory for condensed matter, measurement-based quantum computing, quantum-limited sensors, Majorana Fermions, fast-light with single photons, etc., etc. For an overview of our previous sessions, please click here.
Audience: The lecture is open to everybody, the discussion hour is for the registered class of PhD students and postdocs only.
Registration: Please register by filling in the form below. If you register before February 28 we will make that there is lunch for you.
Preparation: PhD students who have registered for the hot topics course need to prepare for the session by reading the article mentioned in the below.
