Recent progress in quantum informatics with engineered two-level systems has paved the way for conceptually new types of electronic devices, which will process quantum information and will allow new forms of communication and ultra sensitive detection. This field at the crossroads of solid state physics, electronics, quantum physics, and information theory will rapidly expand and in the near future require a generation of highly trained Quantum Engineering specialists. A high-quality graduate school is the backbone of any successful research environment and the training of students is of utmost importance to maintain our research at the frontier of the field engaged in.
We offer a core program of courses developed and given by teachers directly involved in the research program in Engineered Quantum Systems. The courses are on the advanced level and given to an audience of graduate students and students enrolled in the several Masters programs running at Chalmers. Some courses may be considered expert-level courses and as such given only to graduate students.
We also organize student workshops on current topics of research in the field. To these workshops leading experts of the covered topic(s) will be invited to give (short) topical lecture series. A second purpose for such workshops would be to promote networking between graduate students. To achieve this, a student conference may be held in parallel with the workshop. A first Linnaeus Summer school in Nanoscience was held in August 2007 in Hoganas together with the Linnaeus Graduate Schoool in Lund.
