Quantum mechanics shook the field of physics when it was proposed, dramatically changing our understanding of the world underneath us. It has also dramatically shaped society, providing technology from lasers to MRI machines. In this talk, we'll discuss and demystify what we know about quantum so far, and how quantum information and quantum computing provide a new frontier in science.
Registrations for this lecture are closed. The cut-off for registration was 24 hours prior to the start of the lecture to allow time for the e-mailing of invitations to the Zoom Webinar.
Dr. John Donohue is the Scientific Outreach Manager at the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo, where he studies the quantum mechanical rules of the sub-microscopic world. John has taught numerous students and teachers how to reconfigure their intuitions when considering the peculiar features of the quantum world, and has helped develop new techniques in laser physics based on these insights. John holds a PhD in quantum information and photonics from the University of Waterloo, and was a research scientist in Germany before moving back to Canada to focus on quantum education.
