Description

This course is designed to broaden students’ perspectives on the frontier science and technology in physics. It introduces students to fundamental concepts, principles, and discoveries in quantum mechanics without emphasizing on complicated mathematics. Students will learn concepts of quantization, wave-particle duality, uncertainty principle, quantum entanglement, quantum teleportation, and the applications of quantum mechanics in the real-world life. This course covers more on the historical developments of quantum mechanics and the impacts on daily life and world view. So the topics such as Manhattan project, multi-world theory and observer effect, will be discussed on tutorials.
