Evening Public Lecture - Crazy quasi-particles for storing quantum light

23 April 2014, 6.00 PM - 23 April 2014, 6.00 PM

Venue: Centre for NSQI, seminar room G.05. Speaker: Dr Ruth Oulton
Dr Ruth Oulton, Lecturer in Quantum Photonics, Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering, School of Physics.

Inside your computer are millions of tiny transistors, each one less about a millionth of a cm across.  Instead of shrinking the transistors even smaller, scientists and engineers are working on making a completely new type computer. This will use electrons combined with particles of light - photons – to exploit spooky quantum properties that Einstein wrongly predicted would never work.  This “quantum computer” will allow us to tackle the big data problems of the future.
