The event was carried out on July 28th.

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.
