LEARNING AT HOME

Are you interested in learning more about the quantum computer and the quantum internet? We offer several Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs) on edX.org. Don’t have time for an entire course or would you rather learn more about a specific topic? Check out our new platform, The School of Quantum. On this platform, we share knowledge about quantum computing. All topics in one place, for you to explore!

Scroll down to watch some of our videos (also available on YouTube) and dive into the world of quantum mechanics.

Fundamentals of Quantum Information

Take away the hardware, and all quantum computers work the same way, through the clever manipulation of quantum information and entanglement. In this course, you will study these abstract principles of quantum computers, and work with them on our Quantum Inspire simulator platform. Towards the end of the course, we will also discuss near-term quantum devices and quantum supremacy. Each of the four modules concludes with a quiz and experts will be available to answer your questions on the forum: sharing your own experiences, insights and thoughts with the other participants is encouraged!

Quantum Cryptography

Professor Stephanie Wehner, together with Thomas Vidick, Assistant Professor, Computing and Mathematical Sciences of the California Institute of Technology, created this interdisciplinary course as an introduction to the exciting field of quantum cryptography. The course answers the question “How can you tell a secret when everyone is able to listen in?”.

Participants of the course learned how to use quantum effects, such as quantum entanglement and uncertainty, to implement cryptographic tasks with levels of security that are impossible to achieve classically. The course has finished, but the material is still available to learn at your own pace.

Topology in Condensed Matter

Associate professor Anton Akhmerov created, in collaboration with Maryland University, a course that offers a simple and hands-on overview of topological insulators, Majoranas and other topological phenomena. The course has finished, but the material is still available to learn at your own pace.

MAKING A PRACTICAL QUANTUM COMPUTER

Quantum 101: Quantum Computing and Quantum Internet

In this series of two MOOCs, we will take you through all layers of a quantum computer and a quantum internet. No less than 18 of QuTech’s top researchers will teach you the working principles of qubits and, at the same time, the working principles of a computer made of these qubits. The first course will provide you with the scientific basis by explaining the qubits. In the second MOOC, we will introduce the other layers needed to build a quantum computer and a quantum internet, such as the micro-architecture, compilers, quantum error correction and quantum algorithms.
