QDev/NBIA 2016 Summer School, July 3-8, 2016

The Center for Quantum Devices and the Niels Bohr International Academy in Copenhagen invite PhD students in experimental and theoretical condensed matter physics for an international summer school on state-of-the-art ideas underlying the field of quantum information processing and its implementation in solid-state systems.

A strong emphasis will be placed on the fundamentals of such systems, giving the students the necessary background to read the literature and understand the wide variety of qubit (quantum bit) implementations that can be explored by putting these basic building blocks together in creative new ways.

In a series of lectures and interactive study sessions world-renown experts will teach the fundamentals and state-of-the-art in spins, superconductivity, and the controlled creation, storage, and manipulation of quantum information in condensed matter. Quantum error correction, which will play an essential role in the future of this field, will be covered from both theoretical and experimental points of view.
