PHYS 513 - Quantum Optics & Information
|Quantum Optics & Information||PHYS513||A||53201||LEC||4||1530 - 1650||T R||136 Loomis Laboratory|
Experimental and theoretical fundamentals of quantum information, using nonclassical features of quantum physics (wave-particle duality, superposition, and entanglement) to surpass the information-processing capabilities of classical systems. Underlying fundamental quantum phenomena, including tests of nonlocality, quantum erasers, the quantum Zeno effect, squeezed light, multi-particle interference, state transformations of the Bloch sphere, and decoherence; quantum cryptography and teleportation; quantum information theory; quantum computation algorithms and techniques for error correction; experimental "qubit" systems. Course Information: 4 graduate hours. No professional credit. Prerequisite: PHYS 486 is recommended.
