The growing ability to manipulate quantum phenomena in systems and custom-made materials is leading to the production of devices with far superior performance and capabilities for communication, metrology, sensing, simulation and computing. Quantum Technologies will also have a major impact on data security and computation. Therefore, being able to control and master Quantum Technologies is of strategic importance to companies, public administrations and European citizens.
The Departments of Physics, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology of “Federico II” University of Naples have launched significant activities in terms of Education and Research related to the pillars of Quantum Technologies.
In particular, at “E. Pancini” Physics Department, there has been a remarkable development of research activities in the fields of superconducting quantum hardware and quantum computing applications for new software architectures. In addition to this well-established expertise, attention is also given to the needs expressed by the business world, whose interest in these technologies is growing every day.
An Academy provides a training model capable of bringing together these two different worlds and the skill sets they require.
This module introduces the concept of algorithm, computational complexity, and NP-completeness as solid background to understand the potential benefits provided by quantum computer in solving problems that are intractable on conventional digital computers.
This module is aimed to discover fundamental quantum algorithms and learn how to use them via quantum circuits.
