Seminar (M.Sc.) - Quantenphysik

Requirements / organisational issues

Quantum technologies nowadays span the full range of fundamental research to applied physics and metrology.
At the boundaries of fields of physics traditionally regarded as independent, unique opportunities often arise to experimentally study fundamental questions (e.g. why is there any matter at all?).
This seminar aims to present the full range of concepts and the application of quantum methods for particle physics, quantum metrology, .... The topics are therefore broadly chosen to highlight the existing connections. The individual topics are supervised by individual members of the QUANTUM working group.

Framework conditions for the seminar:
1) Contact the supervisor of the lecture at least 4 weeks before the lecture date
2) Discussion of the first draft of the lecture at latest 2 weeks before the lecture
3) Test talk with supervisor at least 1 week before the lecture date
4) Length of presentation: 30 minutes + 10 minutes Q&A
5) Language: English

A list of possible seminar topics (but not limited to these):
