EQS2019 School

The Summer School on Engineered Quantum Systems (EQS2019) is organised in conjunction with the QTD2019 conference. The School will take place immediately after the main conference (June 28 -30) at downtown Helsinki. Welcome!

THE SCHOOL WILL
Provide a relaxed environment to learn about engineered and open quantum systems such as superconducting circuits, and related topics in quantum thermodynamics. It works as a forum to meet students in the community and exchange ideas.

TARGET AUDIENCE
The school is optimized for participants at the graduate student level with the basic quantum mechanics courses completed. However, we also welcome bright younger students and postdocs interested in the topic.

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN
The school aims to give an introduction to the experiments and theory relevant for engineered quantum systems with an emphasis on quantum-mechanical electric circuits. On one hand, these can be used for designed experiments studying fundamental physics. On the other hand, superconducting circuits constitute the most promising candidate to date in building a large-scale quantum computer.

TOPICS
Quantum thermodynamics and heat engines
Open quantum systems and 1/f noise
Quantization of electrical circuits and superconducting qubits
Circuit quantum thermodynamics
