Responsible coordinator of the module PH1328 is Gerhard Rempe.
Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
Seminar presentations by students on the topics
- photon statistics
- two-photon interference
- Artificial atoms
- single photon sources
- laser cooled atom traps
- Bose-Einstein condensation
- atoms in optical lattices, Mott insulator
- cavity quantum electrodynamics (cavity QED)
- circuit QED
- atomic clocks
- tomography of a two-level system
- atom-photon entanglement
- parametric fluorescence
- electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT), slow light
- qubit storage in atomic ensembles
- ions I: True, one-and two-qubit gates
- ions II: Entanglement
- destructive free state measurement (QND measurement)
- Quantum random walk
- many-particle entanglement in optical lattices
After successful participation in the module the student can
use the basic methods of literature retrieval, condense their knowlegde from scientific papers into a presentation and obtain presentation skills.
They have learned about current experiments in quantum optics.

Learning and Teaching Methods
The learning outcomes of this module will be developed through the literature search, the study of literature, the preparation of the presentation, the discussion with the teacher, the talk itself and answering questions about it.
Presentation materials, complementary literature
Specialized literature to the individual topics of the seminar talks will be provided;
own literature search.
