Presidential Dream Course on Quantum Hybrid Systems

A second quantum technology revolution is upon us!  The first used the laws of quantum physics to design systems in which the energy is “quantized,” to allow only certain values. This idea is at the heart of technology ranging from TV remotes to supercomputers. Now, two other features of quantum mechanics, entanglement and superposition, are becoming accessible to control. To do so we must unite the incredible delicacy and uniformity of single atoms with the robust control and reproducibility of larger devices, forming “quantum hybrid systems.” 

This Presidential Dream course will give students competence in the fundamentals so that they may pursue research and careers in this field.  As part of the course world experts will come to OU to give lectures and meet with students.
