Although we do not yet know how long the social distancing related to the Covid-19 pandemic will last, and regardless of the changes that had to be made in the evaluation of the June 2020 session in relation to what is provided for in this learning unit description, new learnig unit evaluation methods may still be adopted by the teachers; details of these methods have been - or will be - communicated to the students by the teachers, as soon as possible.
This biannual learning unit is not being organized in 2019-2020 !
At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :
a. Contribution of the teaching unit to the learning outcomes of the programme (PHYS2M and PHYS2M1)
AA 1.1, AA 1.2, AA 1.5, AA1.6, AA 3.1, AA3.2, AA 3.3, AA 3.4, AA 4.2, AA 5.2, AA 5.4, AA 8.1
b. Specific learning outcomes of the teaching unit
At the end of this teaching unit, the student will be able to :
1. describe the essential concepts of quantum information ;
2. describe the tests of quantum entanglement and their experimental realization ;
3. explain the basic concepts of quantum cryptography and quantum computing.
The contribution of this Teaching Unit to the development and command of the skills and learning outcomes of the programme(s) can be accessed at the end of this sheet, in the section entitled “Programmes/courses offering this Teaching Unit”.
