You will find here a list of lectures dealing with various aspects of quantum physics and technologies proposed in the area of Grenoble.
  • Géométrie et topologie pour la physique
    Master 2 physique, par Frédéric Faure
    Ce cours est destiné à des étudiants de physique désireux d'apprendre des notions de mathématique utiles dans de nombreux domaines de la physique (mécanique quantique, mécanique classique, relativité, électromagnétisme, élasticité, mécanique du solide, robotique et théorie du contrôle,...).
  • Histoire et philosophie de la mécanique quantique
    Master 1 philosophie, par Thomas Boyer-Kassem
    De quoi se compose le monde de l’infiniment petit ? Existe-t-il un hasard fondamental ? La théorie physique de la mécanique quantique propose une réponse à ces questions, ou plutôt des réponses, car des interprétations très différentes ont été proposées par les physiciens et les philosophes.
  • Open Quantum Systems, Mathematical and Thermodynamical Aspects
    Scientific training, by Alexia Auffèves and Alain Joye
    Open quantum systems, at the basis of out-of-equilibrium statistical mechanics and quantum thermodynamics, also play a key role in quantum engineering where the control of the decoherence and entanglement of quantum bits is of paramount importance. This course presents the concepts and mathematical tools necessary to describe and analyze some of their dynamical properties, as well as a view to the recent experimental and theoretical developments in the fast-growing field of quantum thermodynamics.
  • Quantum Engineering
    Doctoral lectures, by Dr. Dominic Horsman
    Quantum engineering is the development of new technologies that have the potential to revolutionise what we can compute. It is a major focus of research and development in France (Grenoble in particular), the EU, and beyond.
  • Quantum engineering quantum information
    Master 2 level lectures by Alexia Auffèves, Nicolas Roch, and Jean-Philippe Poizat
    Quantum communication and information processing (QIPC) is a rapidly growing field that takes advantage of the most counter-intuitive aspects of quantum mechanics to develop new technologies. In this framework, no-cloning theorem is exploited to communicate more securely, while coherence and entanglement become resources to compute in a more efficient way than in the classical world.
