KurzbeschreibungThe goal of the Physics II class is an introduction to quantum mechanics
LernzielTo work effectively in many areas of modern engineering, such as renewable energy and nanotechnology, students must possess a basic understanding of quantum mechanics. The aim of this course is to provide this knowledge while making connections to applications of relevancy to engineers. After completing this course, students will understand the basic postulates of quantum mechanics and be able to apply mathematical methods for solving various problems including atoms, molecules, and solids. Additional examples from engineering disciplines will also be integrated.
- Wave mechanics: the old quantum theory
- Postulates and formalism of Quantum Mechanics
- First application: the quantum well and the harmonic Oscillator
- QM in three dimension: the Hydrogen atom
- Identical particles: Pauli's principle
- Crystalline Systems and band structures
- Quantum statistics
- Approximation Methods
- Applications in Engineering
- Entanglement and superposition
SkriptLecture notes (hand-written) will be distributed via the Moodle interface

6 KP2V + 1UA. Imamoglu
KurzbeschreibungThis course builds up on the material covered in the Quantum Optics course. The emphasis will be on quantum optics in condensed-matter systems.
LernzielThe course aims to provide the knowledge necessary for pursuing advanced research in the field of Quantum Optics in condensed matter systems. Fundamental concepts and techniques of Quantum Optics will be linked to experimental research in systems such as quantum dots, exciton-polaritons, quantum Hall fluids and graphene-like materials.
InhaltDescription of open quantum systems using master equation and quantum trajectories. Decoherence and quantum measurements. Dicke superradiance. Dissipative phase transitions. Spin photonics. Signatures of electron-phonon and electron-electron interactions in optical response.
SkriptLecture notes will be provided
