Quantum Communication – Übersicht





Di 08:30 bis 10:00 H206
Fr 08:30 bis 10:00 HU123

begin: 26.4.2022

The lecture is a two-hour lecture (3 ECTS) but given as block in the first part of the semester.




good knowledge of quantum mechanics, possibly intro to quantum information


This lecture provides an introduction to quantum communication methods. Starting from quantum key distribution the module gives an overview of various methods like quantum teleportation and entanglement swapping, all the way to the design of efficient communication within a quantum network. The module introduces the basic theoretical concepts as well as the various tools and developments necessary to implement the new methods in real world scenarios.
