Quantum Measurement

 

Lecture details

The summer semester is held as a digital semester. In principle, as agreed by the universities in North Rhine-Westphalia, all courses that can be offered remotely will take place online for the entire summer semester.

The lecture will be given by Prof. Di Vincenzo.

Description:

Quantum measurement will be examined, both from a foundational perspective, and from the perspective of applications in quantum information processing. Specific topics include:

  • Basic theory of partial measurement -- Kraus and superoperator representations
  • Charge measurements in quantum computing
  • Dispersive measurements in quantum computing
  • Amplification, quantum and classical
  • Continuous measurements -- the stochastic calculus
  • Measurements of the vacuum -- entanglement in the vacuum
  • Quantum Darwinism

Prerequisites:

Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Field Theory at the advanced bachelor level.

Learning goal:

The students can increase the basic understanding of quantum measurements and extend their knowledge of quantum information theory. The students can apply the theoretical concepts to the real present-day laboratory quantum measurements. The students can master the theoretical skills for application in the research work.
