Quantum Detection Courses

Learn about Quantum Detection with Online Courses and Lessons on edX!

What are Quantum Detectors?

Quantum sensing uses photon and electron movements to provide an image, instead of other methods like thermal detectors. These options allow us to explore regions previously not accessible to us. 

A growing number of applications require readings from single-photon detectors, allowing the advancement of quantum processing and communication. This level of information processing quantum states can accomplish great things across a variety of fields. Detector technology is getting more sensitive and more advanced -- it's only a matter of time before quantum processing is standard.

Quantum states and photon counting can help reveal what's underneath a build site without expensive and dangerous exploratory digging. It's a fascinating way to explore parts of our world.

Quantum Detectors Courses and Certifications

Purdue offers a Micromasters degree in Quantum Technology -- Detection and Networking. You'll understand the principles of quantum detection and applied quantum computing foundations. 

You'll gain experience with the instrumentation involved in quantum mechanics and quantum information. You'll be able to design instruments that detect the maximum amount of information and apply your knowledge to new types of microscopy. You'll also build better calibration, allowing you to manage fluctuations for better readouts.

You can also take one-off courses in quantum detection from Purdue as well as a plethora of courses in quantum mechanics, quantum physics, tomography, detector systems -- even different information processing courses. You can study semiconductors or the algorithms that make it all possible.

Expanding Our Knowledge with Quantum Detectors

The quantum world used to be a mystery, but as we understand more, we've been able to harness it to answer questions we have. You can explore the world through these courses and find your interests. 

Whether you're taking official courses for professional development or expanding your knowledge on your own, edX provides an excellent way for you to learn and connect. Start your journey with edX.org and partners for a wide range of courses designed to ignite your learning.
