About

The purpose of the Quantum in the Summer - An Introduction to the Theory and Practice of Quantum Technologies summer school at the Radboud University is to encourage the next generation of researchers into quantum-based research. 

Overview

Key facts:

  • One of today’s most fascinating fields of research and innovation involves applying quantum phenomena to the development of a new type in computing called quantum computing. Increasingly more and more research institutions and governments are engaging in the development of quantum computing, which makes this the right time to study various fundamental aspects, thereby preparing yourselves for the advent of quantum computers.
  • We offer you a coherent, unified, in-depth set of lectures and tutorials that covers the fundamentals of quantum computing. Our focus will be on obtaining a clear understanding of the fundamentals which will be supplemented by illustrative examples of quantum theory in action. No prior knowledge of quantum theory or quantum computing is assumed.

Programme Structure

We delight in introducing you to, amongst others:

  • The basics of quantum mechanics via well-worked examples;
  • Fundamental protocols of quantum information science, such as, super dense coding and quantum teleportation;
  • The widely used model of quantum computation, the so-called quantum circuits model of computation. This is the model in which results such as Shor’s factoring algorithm;
  • Insights into the 'spooky' nature of quantum entanglement and explanation of why “entanglement is a physical resource”;
  • Properties of quantum communication channels and their application.

Finally, we will offer an exciting set of half-hour afternoon research seminars, which will be designed to give the audience a feel for some cutting-edge the research currently underway in the field.

Audience

Quantum information and computation is one of the fields that benefits most from the creative interaction of mathematicians, physicists, computer scientists, and others. The course is designed for advanced bachelor and master students, however interested PhD students are also welcome to join.
