Discover the foundations of quantum mechanics, and explore how these principles are powering a new generation of advances in quantum engineering, in this ground-breaking undergraduate textbook. It explains physical and mathematical principles using cutting-edge electronic, optoelectronic and photonic devices, linking underlying theory with real-world applications; focuses on current technologies and avoids historic approaches, getting students quickly up-to-speed to tackle contemporary engineering challenges; provides an introduction to the foundations of quantum information, and a wealth of real-world quantum examples, including quantum well infrared photodetectors, solar cells, quantum teleportation, quantum computing, band gap engineering, quantum cascade lasers, low-dimensional materials, and van der Waals heterostructures; and includes pedagogical features such as objectives and end-of-chapter homework problems to consolidate student understanding, and solutions for instructors. Designed to inspire the development of future quantum devices and systems, this is the perfect introduction to quantum mechanics for undergraduate electrical engineers and materials scientists.

'Kono's ten years of teaching a course to engineering undergraduates leads to an introductory book on quantum and information science with refreshing directness, which may also serve as a reference. It includes clear concepts of quantum entanglement and measurement, information theory of circuits and algorithms, and solid accounts of the quantum advantage and quantum materials.' L. J. Sham, University of California, San Diego
'This book provides the essential shortcuts for beginners to learn quantum physics that can be directly applied to the frontline research in modern quantum engineering applications. The author makes an excellent effort to balance rigor and intuition by selecting suitable pedagogical topics, while preserving the core of quantum mechanics for engineering science.' Philip Kim, Harvard University
