APPPHYS 13N: A Taste of Quantum Physics (PHYSICS 13N)

What is quantum physics and what makes it so weird? We'll introduce key aspects of quantum physics with an aim to discover why it differs from everyday 'classical' physics. Students will explore how devices like the laser and atomic clocks for GPS are enabled by quantum physics. We will also discuss the breakthroughs driving the 2nd quantum technology revolution surrounding quantum simulators, sensors, and computers. Seminar discussions and a laser lab will help illustrate core principles, including the atomic clock mechanism. Visits to campus laboratories will introduce cutting-edge quantum experiments. Assignments include text readings and midterm and final projects.While basic familiarity with high school physics is recommended, this IntroSem is friendly to students of all majors who might be interested in these topics; qualitative explanations will be emphasized. By the end of the quarter, you will be able to explain the key tenets of quantum physics, how it has enabled current technology, and what new technologies might emerge from the 2nd quantum revolution.
