15 Aug, 6:30PM, Lecture Theatre 1, UTAS Physics Building, Sandy Bay Tasmania
Quantum Mechanics is probably the best theory we have in all history of Science – with implications an applications everywhere around us: from the explantation of the atomic structure to silicone based technologies.
In spite of its tantalising success, quantum mechanics (QM) still spurs a lively debate about its interpretation: What does QM really mean in nature?
In this lecture, nuclear physicist Dr Catalia Curceanu will explore the famous Schrodinger's Cat paradox – one of the puzzles of QM.
We'll explore the possible ways out: a new alternative theory (collapse models), the existence of many worlds and the Bohemian mechanics.
We'll also discuss the future of quantum technologies: from quantum computing and cryptography to teleportation.
