**Live** A Journey through Quantum Technologies

Thu 13 May 8:58 am

  • This event has passed.

As the great Niels Bohr famously remarked “Anyone who is not shocked by Quantum Theory has not understood it”. Even today approximately a century after the extended formulation of Quantum Theory, its foundations continue to puzzle and perplex most of us. Dr. Alessia Pasquazi will show us the reality of quantum technologies that already underpin our personal everyday way of living. From your simple TV remote control, remarkable smart phone and secure encryption of all electronic communication, Dr. Pasquazi will explain the importance to us all of the coming age of pocket atomic clocks and quantum computers in a style that is thoroughly engaging, exciting and easy to understand.

Dr Alessia Pasquazi, University of Sussex
