# MSc Course in QuantumTechnologies

November 2022- January 2023, UPB**Quantum Technologies**

The course will introduce the basic notions of quantum technologies. The goal is to familiarise the students with the fundamental concepts (entanglement, superposition, quantum gates, quantum protocols etc). The focus will be on photonic implementations and quantum communications.

The Quantum Optics Laboratory is the first of its kind in Romania. It has a Sagnac entanglement source build in-house and two entanglement demonstrators from quTools with several add-ons. The students will perform a set of crucial experiments in **quantum information** & **quantum optics**:

– **wave-particle duality**– violation of

**Bell-CHSH inequality**

–

**quantum eraser**

– quantum random number generation

**(QRNG)**

–

**Hong-Ou-Mandel**2-photon interference

– photon indivisibility
