A lecture delivered by Professor Gerardo Adesso on quantum resources and where to find them.
The quirky features of the quantum realm have puzzled scientists for a century. Microscopic particles can be in superpositions of two states at once -- say heads and tails -- and share entanglement, a correlation that defies their separation in space and time. Efforts in unmasking and controlling these features triggered a technological overhaul rivalling last century’s industrial revolutions. This talk will venture into the foundations of quantum mechanics and illustrate recent progress in exploiting its most elusive signatures as resources for disruptive information and communication tasks.
This lecture will take place on Thursday 12 December between 6-7pm
The event will be taking place in B1, in the school of Physics and Astronomy, University Park.
