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 introductory lecture is open for everyone to attend, the discussion hour is for the registered class of PhD students and postdocs only. 

Preparation: PhD students who have registered for the hot topics course need to prepare for the session by reading the articles mentioned below.
