School of quantum photonics in solid-state devices. The program blends theory, experiments, and programming, offering hands-on experience in cutting-edge quantum systems. The school will run for 5 days, starting on Monday, April 8th, and concluding on Friday, April 12th 2024. Our schedule consists of morning theory classes followed by afternoon experimental sessions. During the school, we will be offering comprehensive services that include daily breakfast, lunches, and accommodation for participants. We look forward to welcoming enthusiastic students for an enriching learning experience.

The school is a gateway to the fascinating realm of quantum photonics in solid-state devices. Whether you're an undergraduate or recent graduate, our program is designed to provide you with essential knowledge, laying the foundation for an exciting Ph.D. course in this cutting-edge field. The program is dedicated to exploring light-matter interactions at the quantum scale, covering a wide range of physics concepts from Bose-Einstein condensation to quantum fluids of light, with a focus on the behaviour of atoms, photons, and polaritons.

What sets "quantum photonics in solid-state devices" apart is our interdisciplinary approach. We integrate theoretical understanding with hands-on experimentation and programming, encouraging students to delve into the intricacies of quantum systems. In our state-of-the-art laboratories, students collaborate with distinguished researchers who are not only experts in their respective fields but also passionate mentors dedicated to nurturing the next generation of quantum scientists.
