"Anyone who is not shocked by quantum theory has not understood it." So said (apparently) physicist Neils Bohr, and anyone who studies the quantum world surely must agree. But David Reilly is here to tell us that we don't have to put up with hypothetical weirdness - these days, we can create incredibly finely-tuned quantum machines that can directly test out the ideas of quantum mechanics.
Not just test them - use them, for novel processes and technologies we are only just beginning to understand.
David Reilly, Professor from the School of Physics at the University of Sydney, is an experimental physicist working at the interface of quantum science, nanoscale condensed matter systems, and cryogenic electronics and hardware.
This course covers the experimental basis of quantum physics. Topics include: photoelectric effect, Compton scattering, photons, Franck-Hertz experiment, the Bohr atom, electron diffraction, ...
|Physics Advanced Applied Laboratory
They represent a wide range of topics and techniques used in experimental physics.
|Quantum Mechanics at Microscopic Scales
Dr. Mark Kasevich delves into the world of atom interferometry, gravitational waves and quantum sensors.
|Quantum Physics and Universal Beauty
Frank Wilczek's groundbreaking work in quantum physics was inspired by his intuition to look for a deeper order of beauty in the universe, using simple questions in an attempt to see the whole answer.
|Quantum Technologies by Jeremy O'Brien
We will describe our progress in the Centre for Quantum Photonics to delivering this promise using an integrated quantum photonics platform - generating, manipulating and interacting single particles of light (photons) in waveguide circuits on silicon chips.
