This course will provide you with a basic understanding of quantum computing and the quantum internet. Together, we’ll peek into the fascinating world of quantum phenomena, such as qubits, superposition, and entanglement. More information here.


Learn how a quantum computer works. Explore the scientific principles behind it, and the software that operates it.

The aim of this course is to help you get up to speed with current progress in the transition to a quantum information era. After an initial review of some of the basic concepts and operating principles of the quantum computer and quantum internet (e.g. the ket notation and quantum bits, the qubits), the course will feature an extensive discussion on some of the different ways qubits can be built. Then, we will discuss the four types of qubits that QuTech focuses on: topological qubits, spin qubits, trans qubits and NV center qubits. More information here.

In this course we will demonstrate how a large-scale quantum processor could be built using these qubits. Among the topics that we will discuss are micro-architectures, compilers, and programming languages. The course will also cover some of the basics of quantum error-correction, an essential procedure that allows us to combat errors that arise during computations using delicate qubits.
