Seminar Quantum Entanglement (442610)

Professor(s): Anton Zeilinger

Start: 03.10.2018 from 10:00 - 12:00 at IQOQI, Boltzmanngasse 3 (third floor).
Every Wed. 10:00-12:00 Uhr

Content: Quantum entanglement is one of the most fundamental features of quantum mechanics, which finds more and more applications. In the seminar, recent research on new fundamental aspects and on novel implementations, particularly in higher dimensions and for quantum communication, will be discussed.

Seminar

Quantum Optics Seminar (442615)

Professor(s): Philip Walther

Start: Monday 08.10.2018 from 16:30-19:00 in the Lise-Meitner lecture hall. 

Content: 
Introduction to experiments and theoretical approaches in modern quantum optics.

You can join the seminar, there is no online registration, if you are interested in getting the ECTS points, then the mandatory attendance (75% of the talks) would be requested and a short (~1 page) scientific statement about one or a few talks should be prepared (for 5 ECTS and a "+" instead of a grade).

Seminar

Quantum Optomechanics (260358)

Professor(s): Markus Aspelmeyer

Start: 04.10.2018 from 11:30 - 13:00 in Seminar room 3354A.

Content: 

This course is aimed at students pursuing Thesis work (at any level) in quantum optomechanics or a closely related discipline. The Quantum regime of massive mechanical systems opens up a new parameter-regime for experimental physics. Relevant topics range from quantum measurement to macroscopic quantum superpositions. We will discuss relevant important literature on that topic.
