Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Course specific prerequisites

Bachelor in physics, electrical engineering, chemistry, or equivalent level of education

Aim

The objective for this course is to give a Quantum
Physics course to meet the increased need
of knowledge that electrical engineers, material
scientists, and other applied physicists have entering
the field of nanoscale physics and technology.

Goal

The goal of the course is to give students
theoretical and technical skills to use quantum theory
as tool in their continued studies and research.
This means that the emphasis is on a practical
approach to quantum mechanics rather that than
a standard formal treatment.

Content

The objective for this course is to give a Quantum
Physics course that meets the increased need
of knowledge that electrical engineers, material
scientists, and other applied physicists have entering
the field of nanoscale physics and technology.
The level of the course is set to give students
theoretical and technical skills to use quantum theory
as tool in their continued studies and research.
This means that the emphasis is on a practical
approach to quantum mechanics rather that than
a standard formal treatment.

Topics covered include:
Quantum wave guides, resonators, and gratings
Pertubation theory
Quantum electrical circuits
Quantum dots
Interaction with time-dependent fields
Semiconductor laser
Spin and quantum bits

Organisation

The various topics will be covered through regular lectures, exercises, as well as through individual projects with literature studies, computer work and project presentations.

Literature

The course follows the book "Quantum Mechanics" by Herbert Kroemer.
Computerwork will be done in the programming environment Matlab.

Examination

Written exam
