Quantum Information (SS14)
General description of course:
Part I: Quantum information formalism. In what way is quantum information different from classical information? Concepts: quantum entanglement, quantum information protocols such as quantum teleportation, gate teleportation, quantum gate universality. Lectures 1-6.
Part II: Physical setting for qubits. What is a physical qubit. Optics and solid state implementations. Spin qubits. Lectures 7-13.
Part III: Continuation of physical realization of quantum information. Superconducting qubits. Quantum error correction and fault tolerance. Lectures 14-20.
