Quantum teleportation, quantum entanglement, quantum communication
Research Subject: Physical Optics
This summer research program is a summary of several topics in optics. In this program, students will be introduced to the current research topics, including nonlinear optics, quantum optics, and computational op- tics. We will build an interferometer and get to experience cool experimental aspect in optics. A few mini- projects will be given to help understanding the material. Upon completion of this program, students should have comprehensive knowledge about the field of optics.
Session 1: Quantum Technology Overview
Task 1: Overview of what we can do with quantum enhanced technology. Topics include quantum telepor- tation, quantum entanglement, quantum communication, and others.
Session 2: Fundamental of Quantum Mechanics, an Introduction
Task 2: Learn some basic concepts of quantum mechanics. Topics include Schrödinger and Heisenberg picture of quantum mechanics, Dirac notation, etc.

Session 6: Fourier Optics and propagation of light (mini project)
Session 8: Holograph, phase retravel and 3D imaging (mini project)
Task 8: Learn several 3D imaging methods (recover the phase of the wave). We will do simulation and process the real image data using MATLAB.
