The continuing evolution of quantum theory is essential to helping us predict how energy operates at the atomic and subatomic level. This course introduces concepts and techniques that tackle the inherent challenges of modern devices and systems that exploit quantum effects. Students will get a solid grounding especially for applications in areas such as materials, electronic and optical devices, and nanotechnology.
