Tutorials and Exercises
Tutorials are held Wednesday, 8:15-9:45 in lecture hall 46-270. The problem sets will mainly concern original publications on topics relevant for the lecture.
Rules to certify successful completion
Advanced Quantum Master
Short (online-)test or conversation (on groups) in the last lecture week. Certifies "regular and active participation" for Quantum Optics I and Quantum Optics II.
Optional, the tutorials can be included. The certificate can be used for general Electives.
