Goal: The goal of this course is to train students to master in an operational way the concepts and the techniques of quantum mechanics required to pursue advanced studies in nano-physics. The course activity will be based mainly on tutoring sessions devoted to problem-solving. Students will be assigned homework on a week-to-week basis, to review/acquire the fundamental notions in quantum mechanics on textbooks or slides, and they will be given questions and problems to prepare for the classes, in order to develop their ability in solving quantum physics problems.

Content: This course will review fundamental concepts and illustrate them by various example of quantum nanosystems:
 - angular momentum coupling, spin orbit coupling,
-  Coulomb potential, two-level quantum systems,
- Bloch sphere, Rabi oscillations
 -main approximation methods: perturbation theory, Fermi golden rules
