Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The Lecture „Qubits, Spins, and Quantum Sensors“ is an introduction to a selection of key topics in quantum technology, with a focus on spin-based systems such as the nitrogen-vacancy centre in diamond.

Content:
The lecture will comprise the concept of a qubit, some of its physical implementations and the core applications of such systems. The description of applications will include an overview of quantum computation, quantum communication, and quantum sensing.
A particular focus of the description will be placed on electronic and nuclear spins in semiconductors such as diamond, silicon, and silicon carbide. This focus will allow to underline the connection between quantum technology and “classical” nuclear magnetic resonance as well as electron spin resonance methods.
The course will outline the astounding technological and conceptual progress of the field in the last decades, examples of current research directions, and existing commercial pursuits.

Assessment and permitted materials

Structure:
The lecture will be accompanied by elements of active participation by the students, including:
4 home exercise sheets
2 tests
2 presentations of a scientific paper by each student
1 laboratory-based assignment (e.g. design of a spin entanglement sequence)

The laboratory-based assignment will include a tour of the solid-state spin quantum control experiments at the Faculty of Physics.
