This course covers key topics in the use of quantum mechanics in many modern applications in science and technology. It introduces core advanced concepts such as spin, identical particles, the quantum mechanics of light, the basics of quantum information, the interpretation of quantum mechanics, and the major ways in which quantum mechanics is written and used in modern practice. It follows on directly from the QMSE-01 "Quantum Mechanics for Scientists and Engineers" course, and is also accessible to others who have studied some quantum mechanics at the equivalent of a first junior or senior college-level physics quantum mechanics course.
Students who complete the course with a score of 70% or better will receive a Statement of Accomplishment. Students who complete the course with a 90% or better will receive a Statement of Accomplishment with distinction.
