The scope of this summer school is two fold:
 To bring together researchers in the rapidly developing
fields of quantum computation, mesoscopic physics,
and nanostructured materials for molecular electronics
to discuss current developments and to exchange ideas
 To give tutorial lectures on fundamentals
of nanometerscale science and technology with
a special emphasis on
physical aspects of quantum devices
and computation.
The school is intended for graduate students,
postdoctoral fellows, and young scientists
working in condensed matter physics, materials
science and related fields. The main goal is to
provide an overview of this rapidly growing field
so that young scientists will have the opportunity
to work at the frontiers of this new exciting field.
Topics will include
 Quantum transport, correlations, noise,
and decoherence in quantum dots, Josephson junctions,
nanowires and rings
 Physics of Qubits (i.e. quantum manipulation and control,
experimental realization, etc)
 Spintronic (i.e. spindependent transport and control,
spin qubits, molecular magnets, etc)
 Mesoscopic superconductivity
 Physics of single electron devices and molecularscale
electronics
 Firstprinciples modeling of nanodevices, interfaces,
and atomic contacts
 Experimental techniques to create, manipulate,
and measure a quantum state in macroscopic systems
for quantumcomputing devices
Both
theoretical and experimental aspects will be covered.
