**Basic Concepts in Quantum Information**

by S. M. Girvin

**Publisher**: arXiv 2013**Number of pages**: 52

**Description**:

These lecture notes will present a brief introduction to the basic theoretical concepts behind the 'second quantum revolution'. These notes will also provide an introduction to 'circuit QED'. In addition to being a novel test bed for non-linear quantum optics of microwave electrical circuits which use superconducting qubits as artificial atoms, circuit QED offers an architecture for constructing quantum information processors.
