Ph.D. level course proposal - École Doctorale 352 « Physique et Sciences de la Matière »
Volume : 12 hours
Short description
The goal of these lessons is to teach the basic tools necessary for understanding the progresses and realizations in quantum information and quantum optics that occurred during the so-called second quantum revolution (1980 to today), and to show how they apply in some practical applications.
Ultimately our goal is to provide a ``first taste’’ of these fascinating concepts, but also to bring the audience to a degree of familiarity with these concepts that could allow them to learn by themselves in the future, after getting acquainted with the basic tools.
