51st IFF Spring School 2020 on Quantum Technology

The annual IFF Spring School has a long-standing tradition dating back to 1969 when the Institut für Festkörperforschung (IFF) was founded. The IFF Spring School is organised in close collaboration with universities, research institutions, and industry. The School offers about 45 hours of lectures plus discussions as well as the opportunity to visit the participating institutes at Forschungszentrum Jülich.

In the 2020 IFF Spring School, the students and young researchers will be exposed to the modern quantum mechanics tool box in order to equip them with the tools needed to tackle research problems in various different areas. The lecture plan will be organized to survey the entire scope of the current Quantum Technology Flagship of the European Union (qt.eu).  Tours of the Forschungszentrum campus will allow students to visit active laboratories engaged in quantum research, as well as the Jülich Supercomputing Center where future quantum computing activities will be hosted. Hands-on activities will be planned in which cloud access to functioning quantum information processing devices will be organized.
