Saturday Physics for Everyone

Add to Calendar 10/27/2018 10:15 am 10/27/2018 America/Chicago Saturday Physics for Everyone DESCRIPTION:

Quantum communication uses the quantum properties of photons, such as their ability to affect each other’s states instantaneously no matter their physical separation, to transmit information with absolute security. I will explain the underlying concepts of quantum communication and present some of the progress and pitfalls on the road to a quantum internet.  I will also talk about what it is like to work with such strange quantum effects in the lab.
