Advances in nanofabrication and the understanding and control of the quantum properties of matter are laying the groundwork for revolutionary new technologies and information processing capabilities. Following the successful school in 2016, the summer school NanoQI'17 provides an introduction to the basics and recent advances in major areas of quantum information theory and solid-state-based quantum technologies. Both the physics of different implementations of quantum information technologies and the applicable theoretical methods are covered.

The school is aimed at PhD students and young postdocs interested in quantum information processing and quantum technologies and offers lectures by leading researchers in the field (both from experiment and theory) that offer an overview of the main concepts and methods and explain promising current research directions. In addition it offers a forum for all participants to present and discuss their own research with their colleagues and senior researchers.

Eight leading experts will review the experimental and theoretical state-of-the-art for some of the most promising implementations such as semiconductor quantum dots, superconducting circuits, defect centers in diamond, photonic crystal structures, and topological insulators and explore the prospects of quantum computing, quantum technologies, and the physics of quantum many-body systems.

The subjects covered in the school comprise:

  • Quantum Information and Quantum Simulations
  • Quantum Optics
  • Semiconductor Quantum Dots and Spin Qubits
  • Circuit-QED and Superconducting Qubits
  • Defects in Diamonds for Quantum Information Processing and Metrology
  • Quantum Optomechanics
  • Solid-state Quantum Optics
  • Topological Matter
