Our next talk in the series QM Talks@CBPF will be delivered by Alexandre B. Tacla (Glasgow). Alexandre has many interests, and a broad knowledge. In this talk he will tell us about his recent results on how to deal with complex many-body systems in an efficient way. 253 more words
Researchers at the University of Bath have recently developed a technique to more reliably produce single photons, potentially advancing the field of quantum information processing. The study of the world at the atomic scale is what gave birth to the field of quantum physics. 445 more words
