Announcement: General Information

The on-line Course is organized by the International Institute for Advanced Scientific Studies "E.R. Caianiello" (IIASS), in collaboration with the Department of Physics, University of Salerno from the 4th to the 9th of October 2021.

The Training Course is aimed at graduate students and PostDoc researchers, and offers the fascinating possibility to meet selected experts belonging to different areas in Condensed Matter Physics and Optical Physics.

This year the focus will be on:

Trends and Platforms for Quantum Technologies

The Second Quantum Revolution is unfolding now, exploiting the enormous advancements in our ability to detect and manipulate single quantum objects and triggering the development of the different Quantum Technologies on different platforms ranging from solid state platforms to atomic, molecular and optical platforms. New perspectives and opportunities are opening for researchers in this field. The training course Platforms for Quantum Technologies issued to PhD and postdoc students in Physics  is intended to give an introduction to the different platforms for quantum technologies from different perspectives from the fabrication, to the modelization and numerical implementation of quantum circuits (Josephson junctions qubits etc) and cold atoms platforms for Quantum Technologies. Some basics of quantum communication processes and introduction to quantum information theory will also be given.

The Training Course is not intended as a series of formal lectures where no real contact develops between lecturers and audience. The idea is to let meet virtually senior and young researchers in a close and informal atmosphere.

The course lasts one week and sees the participation of five senior lecturers. In the morning, each senior researcher will deliver a lecture. The afternoon sessions are devoted to training and emphasis will be on introducing young researchers to some specific problems and guiding them through their solution. The participants will be encouraged to present their own activity. The aim is to help young researchers to become more familiar with different approaches and start new collaborations. A limited number of participants will have the opportunity to deliver a seminar.

The Course is open to a limited number of young (aged under 40) researchers.

The registration fee is €150.00 and includes all the didactics material, lectures slides and school proceedings.

In the 2021 edition, young researchers will benefit from training in scientific techniques and various methodologies under the guidance of highly qualified senior lecturers:


Prof. Ramon Aguado

Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), Madrid, Spain

Prof. Maciej Lewenstein

ICFO, Institute for Photonic Science, Barcellona, Spain

Prof. Michael Stern
