Quantum Mechanics with Sabine

Discover the fundamental machinery of quantum mechanics

The early 20th century revolution in physics showed that reality boils down to the study of funny little objects that can form superpositions, entangle with each other, and describe all that can possibly be known. They also contain hard truths about the behavior of nature. These objects are called quantum states.

We made this course to explain the machinery of quantum mechanics, and explain its peculiar implications for the world we live in. You'll learn counterintuitive quantum principles through hands-on simulations and use them to discover quantum states.
