Module PC3280, Student Seminar Series

When: AY18/19, Semester I, Tuesday 4-6 pm
Where: S16-0309
Docents: Kai Dieckmann / Kwek Leong Chuan
Credit: 4 (CS/CU)

The seminar is centered around topics in atomic physics, quantum optics, and quantum information. Both experimental and theoretical topics are available, as in this area often theoretical work is very closely related to experiments. The syllabus with the list of topics and further details are given in the module description in the IVLE as well as below. There are 17 slots for talks during the semesteer. The distribution of topics from the list is conducted in the first week of the semester. The first student talks are to be held in semester week four.
