Below you’ll find some links and references about different issues on (quantum) information theory and optics.
• Lectures on Quantum Computation by David Deutsch: A glamorous series of six video lectures as an introduction to the quantum computation theory by Prof. D. Deutsch (downloadable).
• Information Processing and Thermodynamic Entropy: A useful page to get familiar with the relation between quantum information and thermodynamics; hence, the field of Quantum Thermodynamics.
• The Information Philosopher: This page provides you with quite a bit of people, either scientists or philosophers, who have discussed `infromation’.
• Kwiat Quantum Information Group: An excellent page to (quickly) get to know about quantum information in the viewpoint of quantum optics.
• How to become a GOOD Theoretical Physicist: “This is a page for ambitious people, who are (like me) determined to use their brains to discover new things about the physical world that we are living in.” –Gerard Hooft.
• Open Problems in Quantum Information
• Interaction-free Measurement: How to detect the position/state of an object without having interaction with it. You can also see Elitzur-Vaidman thought experiment.
