Course Description

Quantum mechanics describes the fact that material is actually a wave, which is far from common sense. However, current technologies have already included quantum mechanics such as lasers. In the class we will learn the fundamentals of this quantum mechanics.
This course corresponds to DP3 and DP4E.

Course Objectives

Quantum mechanics began from the experimental result that the particles are particles as well as waves. Quantum mechanics is a very mysterious discipline. In recent years, the topic of quantum computers has often been found in many media. In this class, students will be able to use quantum mechanics starting from its history

Grading Policy

Evaluation will be based on small tests and reports (50%) and results of final exams (50%).
