Be inspired by our students and professors telling you all about their projects and the online courses that you can take with us.
NITROGEN VACANCY CENTRES IN DIAMOND
Sophie Hermans – MSc student at QuTech – explaining her Master’s Thesis on nitrogen vacancy centres in diamond. “I don’t know yet what the implications of a quantum internet will be, but I think it will be the invention of the 21st century.”
Guanzhong Wang – MSc student at QuTech – explaining his Master’s Thesis on Majorana signatures. “The next few years is really going to be an exiting time in our field. And I really want to be there when we eventually have a topological qubit.”
BUILDING BLOCKS OF A QUANTUM COMPUTER
Discover how a quantum computer works. Explore the scientific principles behind it, and the software that operates it. A new online course about the building blocks of a quantum computer is available via EdX.org
INTRODUCTION TO QUANTUM INFORMATION
Professor Stephanie Wehner of QuTech introduces the basic quantum principles like qubits and entanglement. “I really want to send qubits from any place on earth to any other place on earth. It would be super cool if we can generate entanglement between any two points on earth!” This video is part of the online course that is available on EdX.org.
FUNDAMENTALS OF QUANTUM INFORMATION
Professors Stephanie Wehner and Leo DiCarlo introduce the MSc course Fundamentals of Quantum Information. You will learn more about the basics in quantum technologies: what are qubits, and how are they different from classical bits? And how can a qubit be realised?
Professors Stephanie Wehner and Ronald Hanson introducing the MSc course Quantum Communication and Cryptography. This course will teach you more on quantum communication and quantum internet. What can we do with it? And how does it allow us to communicate securely?
Professor Lieven Vandersypen will introduce to you the MSc course Quantum Hardware. How can a quantum computer actually be built? How is a single qubit realised? And how can we ever put together many qubits in a large scale machine?
