The unit will start with a two-week introduction to the theory of quantum information. There will then be 4.5 weeks on the theoretical background of the experimental platforms for quantum information. There will also be a two week experimental project during this time, which will be due in week 6. This will be followed by 6.5 weeks of more advanced topics in quantum information, including quantum algorithms and error correcting codes.
Lectures: Monday 10am-12pm W5C 301, Wednesday 3-5pm EMC G230
Labs: Tuesday 10am-1pm for 2 weeks
