Hands-on Quantum Technology in Sweden

​WACQT Graduate Course - Lab-Course Autumn 2019

Credit points: 7.5 hp
Semester: Fall 2019


Purpose and aims: The aim of the course is to give the participating graduate students a hands-on experience of basic quantum technology experiments. By performing different experiments at the Swedish universities participating in WACQT, the students will also get an overview of the quantum technology research performed in Sweden and establish valuable contacts with colleagues working in the field.

After a completed course the students should have acquired 
  • basic knowledge about quantum technology research performed at Swedish universities.
  • detailed knowledge about four central quantum technology concepts.    
  • skills to perform, with some supervision, basic quantum technology experiments.  
Course description: The course consists of four experimental labs, including preparatory lectures and exercises. Each lab will be performed at a different university and last in total two to three days. The respective university, lab title, local lab responsible and dates are:
