This event will be held in the Large Lecture Theatre, Poynting Building. Refreshments will be provided from 7.00pm in the Tea Room of the Poynting Building, second floor. This lecture is free of charge and suitable for teachers and students studying at GCSE and A-level. No booking required.
Full Event Details:
The Nobel Prize winning technology to control atoms at the quantum limit has had a huge impact on our ability to harness quantum physics opening prospects from fundamental physics to everyday applications. It in particular enables building well-controlled quantum models for the many-body physics behind transport of charges and excitations in conductors and biological systems. In addition it underpins precision sensors for gravity, rotation, electromagnetic fields and time, which promise huge economic impact. I will present recent research results in the transport of soliton-like excitations in matter-waves and the developments towards applications of quantum sensors within the UK National Quantum Technology Hub in Sensors and Metrology.
