Responsible coordinator of the module PH1483 is Menno Poot.
Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
In this exciting seminar we will discuss recent literature in the fields of optomechanics and quantum optics. The students will prepare a talk on current topics in the field, followed by an active discussion. The seminar will be held in English. Also this semester, the seminar will be held online via Skype or Zoom.
After successful participation in the module the student can:
- perform a literature search on a topic
- explain the main points of a scientific paper
- judge the quality of its claims
- compare different papers on the same topic
- combine the contents of scientific papers into a coherent presentation on the subject
- actively participate in scientific discussions
A basic knowledge of quantum mechanics will be useful.
