Module aim (aims)

The lectures are an introduction to quantum optics, atom optics,
quantum engineering, quantum information, and quantum computing.

Pre-requisites in terms of knowledge, skills and social competences (where relevant)

Knowledge of the basic concepts and methods of quantum mechanics
is assumed. However, the course is essentially self-contained in
the concepts of quantum optics and quantum information.
