Casimir Course on Hot Topics in Quantum NanoScience - Andrew Cleland 4 October



Casimir Research School presents a course on
Hot Topics in Quantum NanoScience

Course Content: Speakers from all over the world will be asked to present pedagogical introductions to their field with an emphasis on basic concepts. Besides such an introductory lecture open for everybody, the participants of this course will have an additional discussion with the speaker discussing 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.

Audience: The tutorial, as a ~1 hour lecture, is open to everybody. A 2nd hour will be reserved as a discussion hour between the registered class of PhD students and postdocs with the lecturer. The course teachers will act as moderators. Besides the public lecture, private discussion and research paper, a session is concluded by writing a 1-page essay within one week on the subject and preferentially in the context of the participant’s own research.

Organisation: This is a running course with on average one meeting per month and ten per year. The dates are not entirely fixed because we will make use of visitors as external speakers.

Course teachers: Gary Steele, Leo DiCarlo, Leo Kouwenhoven & Tjerk Oosterkamp
