Courses taught by Julio Barreiro at UC San Diego:
PHYS 139/239. Quantum Science and Technology. Undergraduate and Graduate. Self-contained course on quantum science and technology. Although quantum devices are implemented using a number of technologies, the fundamental quantum mechanical structure underpinning them is the same as that of the quantum optics of atoms and light. Atoms may be genuine atoms or engineered systems, e.g. superconducting systems, and light may be of any wavelength from UV to microwave regimes. This course will cover the foundations of quantum optics, the most powerful and convenient theoretical and experimental toolbox for the understanding of quantum devices, such as quantum computers and sensors
Winter 2021 (Syllabus)
PHYS 2CL. Physics Laboratory—Electricity and Magnetism. Experiments on L-R-C circuits; oscillations, resonance and damping, measurement of magnetic fields. One-hour lecture and three hours’ laboratory. Program or materials fees may apply.
PHYS 124. Laboratory projects. A laboratory-lecture-project course featuring creation of an experimental apparatus in teams of about two. Emphasis is on electronic sensing of the physical environment and actuating physical responses. The course will use a computer interface such as the Arduino.
PHYS 2B. Electricity and Magnetism (for engineers). Continuation of Physics 2A covering charge and matter, the electric field, Gauss’s law, electric potential, capacitors and dielectrics, current and resistance, electromotive force and circuits, the magnetic field, Ampere’s law, Faraday’s law, inductance, electromagnetic oscillations, alternating currents and Maxwell’s equations.
PHYS 100A. Electromagnetism I. Coulomb’s law, electric fields, electrostatics; conductors and dielectrics; steady currents, elements of circuit theory.
PHYS 100C. Electromagnetism III. Electromagnetic waves, radiation theory; application to optics; motion of charged particles in electromagnetic fields; relation of electromagnetism to relativistic concepts.
