Track: Quantum Nanoscience

The Quantum Nanoscience track (QN) studies quantum phenomena and exploits novel principles in nanostructured devices. The unusual behaviour of the quantum world is revealed in delicate experiments, geared towards developing building blocks for devices with unprecedented functionality and scale. Your Master’s thesis project is carried out in the Quantum Nanoscience department.

Examples of elective courses related to this track are Advanced Quantum Mechanics, Advanced Solid State Physics, Mesoscopic Physics, Nanotechnology, Physics of Semiconductor Nanodevices, Quantum Information Processing, and Molecular Electronics. 

The Casimir pre-PhD special programme focuses on preparing and educating MSc students for a PhD position at the Delft Kavli Institute of Nanoscience, the Leiden Institute of Physics (LION) or elsewhere.
