This was an awesome course. I recommend it to all who are working with Quantum physics, Quantum mechanics, Quantum Optics, Quantum Computing and Information Science, Quantum Communication
Very clear and informative. The courses are short respectively and they are very exciting. The quizzes are a very good review to keep you concentrated.

The course is really very good. Prof. Aspect exceeds his pedagogic skill and makes the lecture listening delightful. The course focuses in a few concepts that develops step by step to reach a deepper insight.
In my opinion the homework part can be improved. In some cases the statements in the homework are confusing and it is not clear the goal and what the questions ask for

Tres interessant car abordant des questions théoriques et pratiques a la frontière de l'optique quantique. Le cours est toutefois un peu trop dense et mériterait d'être plus aéré en détaillant les étapes intermédiaires du raisonnement et du calcul

Really good course, but you need to have a strong background in quantum mechanics in order to understand the lessons. Professor Aspect clearly explains the topics

The concepts are made clear as well as the calculations. The wave particle duality is made clear along with a quite long discussion.

There should be more resources to study like some lecture notes. Besides that, the overall level is very good.

The subject matter is very interesting and is introduced gradually from the most simple situations to more complex ones.
However many key results are presented without any proof, coming out of the blue. The expressions for the photodetection signals are not sufficiently related to first principles. This is a bit disappointing. Perhaps they assume the student lacks the kowledge to understand the proofs? This would be a contradiction because the homeworks require a very good knowledge of quantum mechanics and its formalism.
The forum seems completely inactive. My questions remain unanswered.

It's math I put surprisingly easy.

I recommend that you obtain an independent review of the homework on this course, specifically to address the questions of whether the course prepares learners for the homework, and whether the questions are are clear to learners. I find that the answers to these questions are NO for weeks 4 and 5. In week 5, for example, question 1(1) asks about a single state |phi-f> which is not defined in the question or in the introduction to the homework or in the lectures. Questions 1(2-5) use a technique that has not been taught in the lectures and is not always part of an undergraduate course in QM. This kind of thing can be extremely disappointing for learners, and frankly implies that the setter of the questions was not actually competent to do so.

Poor. Very boring and dull presentation. Hardly anything is explained very clearly. It would be far more profitable to simply study an appropriate textbook or online course notes.
