Presented by Associate Professor Michael J. Biercuk
ARC Centre for Engineered Quantum Systems, School of Physics, University of Sydney
Whether you know it or not, quantum mechanics powers almost every piece of technology you encounter day-to-day: from LED lights in your home to the microprocessor in your mobile phone. Despite the ubiquity of these technologies, they represent only the first step of what is possible if we harness the full breadth of what quantum mechanics has to offer, including a suite of counterintuitive properties that we often call ‘quantum strangeness’.
Find out how quantum mechanics has already transformed our world and what lies ahead thanks to a growing field of modern research – quantum science. Discover how Associate Professor Biercuk’s work is seeking to control and exploit the strangest phenomena in quantum physics to power a new technological revolution and engineer the quantum future.
