Develop a basis for understanding quantum mechanics and its applications in modern electronics and information processing (lasers, field effect transistors, quantum communication, quantum computation, etc.)
Develop a basis for understanding the quantum mechanical aspects of modern electronics (lasers, quantized Hall effect, field effect transistors, optical tweezers, etc.)

Engineering Science: 3 credits
The goal of this course is introduce the quantum mechanical concepts needed to understand the operation of current nanoelectronics and nanophotonics, as well as next-generation quantum information processing technologies. This course combines the use of course textbooks with current literature to show how quantum principles are used not simply to understand traditional physics applications but to understand new physical effects and their potential applications in transformative new technologies.
Students will be encouraged to work together to solve homework problems, and they should be prepared to individually communicate their understanding of course material.
By the completion of 14 lectures (halfway mark), the students should have been introduced to the following and be able to do:
By the end of the course (semester) students should be able to:
15. Work with angular momentum operators and spherical harmonics (1)
