Last week, we had a pleasure to host Dr Lewis Clark with a presentation titled: ‘Quantum Physics: From “spooky action” to teleportation’ as a part of our AKADEMEIA SCIENCE TALK series.
Akademeia Science Talks are a great way for our students to inculcate a spirit of scientific enquiry and analytical thinking, and provide a unique opportunity to gain expert knowledge. They are held in AHS on a regular basis and are open to the whole community.
Dr Clark gave an introduction to our modern understanding of the quantum world and discussed how it could be used to provide new technology applications for us in the future. In particular, he discussed the origin of Einstein’s “spooky action” and provided an overview of something as complex as quantum teleportation in a very engaging way with thought-provoking examples and visuals.
Dr Lewis completed his PhD in quantum optics at the University of Leeds in 2017, before then taking a 3 year postdoctoral researcher position at Newcastle University and then at the University of Warsaw, where he is currently based.
”A slight glimpse into a different physics universe, the quantum realm. Dr. Clark led us through an inspiring talk about the possibilities and limitations of quantum physics. What a fabulous science talk!”
”This seminar was very eye-opening. As a social science student, I was surprised to find out that a natural science seminar about quantum physics would interest me. I am very grateful to have had this opportunity to attend this talk, which was very well conducted by a fantastic physicist and great speaker.”
Stay tuned for future seminars and talks in Akademeia!
