👨🏼‍🏫👩🏼‍🏫 Teaching & Learning

On this page, we collect some educational materials that our researchers have created for students, educators, and anyone interested in science, especially quantum physics. This collection includes a variety of engaging presentations, tutorials, lecture notes, and additional supporting materials, all designed to enable a deeper exploration of the key concepts and findings in our research field. Our goal is not only to simplify the learning process but also to create a collaborative and knowledge-sharing environment that encourages active participation and engagement in our research.
