Advanced Quantum Electronics

 

Lecture details

This lecture will be given by Dr. Pletyukhov.

Description:

Quantum dots and superconducting junctions are basic elements of circuits for quantum electronics and quantum-information processing. This course provides an overview of key approaches for their theoretical description. It includes the following topics: quantization of electric circuits (charge and phase collective variables, reactive elements, fluctuations, noise); dissipation by environment (dissipative elements, open quantum systems, Caldeira-Leggett model, master equations); quantum field theory of transmission lines (microwave photons, input-output formalism); nonlinear circuit elements (superconducting qubits); quantum theory of signal amplification.

Prerequisites:

The course is self-contained for students with a solid background in quantum mechanics, statistical physics, and basics of quantum theory of many-particle systems.</span></span>
