Master in Nanosciences and nanotechnologies

Quantum information and quantum engineering

Presentation and goals

This program on Quantum Information and Quantum Engineering  will provide a master's training in line with the new needs of Grenoble research laboratories working on cutting-edge subjects in rapid and constant evolution within the framework of a strong international competition. It completes the training offers by the first year Master of Nanophysics-Quantum physics as well as the UFR Phitem courses. This new Master 2 program aim to provide students with expertise at the interface between the fundamental and experimental aspects of quantum physics with the aim to control quantum systems and quantum bits in the vision of their applications in the field of communication and quantum information processing. It will also allow the opening of multidisciplinary courses at the interface with mathematics and computer science. This program is fully consistent with the large developments in quantum technologies in Grenoble and worldwide. This program is well suited to the needs of academic laboratories, offering many opportunities for internships or PhD programs.

This program will provide lessons from fundamentals aspects and implementations to advanced instrumentations, as well as a A 4-5 months full time internship in research teams for the preparation of the master's thesis

Fundamentals: Open Quantum systems (3 ECTS), Quantum optics (3 ECTS), Quantum transport (3 ECTS) 

Implementations: Solid state qubits (3 ECTS), Nanomagnetism and spintronics, Quantum algorithms (3 ECTS)

Advanced instrumentations: Microwave and cryoelectronics (3 ECTS), From nanofabrication in research labs to VLSI (3 ECTS).
