Description: The field of Applied Physics is inherently connected to the application of quantum physics. This course assumes prior exposure to quantum mechanics and provides graduate level study of non-relativistic quantum physics, focusing on fundamental conceptual issues and methods. The course is intended to prepare students for a professional career or doctoral studies in Applied Physics and will provide students with the foundational, conceptual, and technical background required to move to advanced topics such as quantum information, quantum optics, quantum field theory and quantum many-body physics. Instructor consent required. Letter grade only.
