Quantum Engineering

Quantum Engineering

The study line in quantum engineering focuses on the understanding, control and design of complex quantum systems for applications in emerging quantum technologies such as extremely sensitive sensors, quantum communication systems and quantum computers. The methods involved range from quantum mechanical calculations and simulations of e.g. electron transport in two-dimensional materials like graphene to the theoretical and experimental development and investigations of new optical systems, solid-state systems, electronic systems and mechanical systems that are designed to harness the fundamental properties of quantum mechanics – such as quantum superposition and entanglement.
