The field of Quantum Information develops faster and faster each year with billions of dollars invested both from private venture funds and governmental structures. Thus, the need for quantum information experts increases much faster than new experts are created. That is why the experts are sought after internationally and offered high salaries. For this reason, the Russian-Armenian University has created a new bachelor's program in Quantum Information. The graduates will receive a state-certified degree and become a professional that meets the requirements of modern business. The eminent specialists teaching the courses are not only from Armenia but also from top international institutions and enterprises. The best students will have the opportunity to study abroad at our partner universities: Patras University, Greece; Linnaeus University, Sweden; Vrije Brussels University, Belgium. The potential applicants will be required to pass state certifies tests on physics and mathematics and the top applicants will receive free education. Contacts.

Summer school in Patras.

The 1st Summer School 2021 Remote was concluded from July 12 to July 16. The scope of the Summer School has offered young researchers the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the theoretical background and relevant methodologies which are closely related to the fields of Quantum Information and Quantum Optics. Advances in these scientific areas pave the way for technological applications with the potential to radically improve or transform several aspects of human endeavor. The following topics were discussed:

  • Electronic structure calculations and applications
  • Optical properties of Nanomaterials
  • Quantum Optics at the nanoscale
  • Nanophotonics
  • Experimental Techniques
  • Quantum technologies
The school was organized succesfully recieving positive feedback from the participants.
