AEP 2550 - Engineering Quantum Information Hardware

(crosslisted) ENGRD 2550  
Spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: MATH 1920 , PHYS 1112  or PHYS 1116 . Corequisite: MATH 2930 , PHYS 2213  or PHYS 2217 .

G. Fuchs.

This course examines the physical hardware of quantum information processing, quantum communication, and quantum sensing technologies. Topics include an analysis of qubit attributes and an introduction to the operational principles of physical qubits. Specific systems will include photonic circuits, trapped ions, superconducting quantum circuits, isolated solid-state spins and quantum dots.

Outcome 1: Understand the basic concepts of quantum information technologies.

Outcome 2: Understand and explain the properties of a qubit and its representation.

Outcome 3: Understand and analyze quantum gate operations.

Outcome 4: Have knowledge of emerging quantum technology platforms and how they relate to quantum engineering goals.
