Conversations on the Quantum World: The Power of Quantum Materials
- Public Event
Quantum science emerged from studies of the smallest objects in nature. Today, it promises to deepen our understanding of the universe and deliver groundbreaking technology, from quantum computers to ultra-precise measuring devices to next-generation materials, with many of these advances happening at Caltech. In Conversations on the Quantum World, you will hear directly from Caltech experts about the next quantum revolution and have the opportunity to ask your own questions.
Electronics continue to shrink in size to grow in capability, speed, and efficiency. The devices that power society now rely on components engineered at the nanoscale. At such small scales, quantum effects begin to take over, exerting a powerful influence on how materials work. Industry professionals turn to physicists for answers about these seemingly confounding but critically important effects. In this event, experimental physicist Nai-Chang Yeh will share insights on what quantum materials are and why we can expect them in all our future technologies.
This is a free event, but registration is required. The first 1,000 attendees can join the Zoom webinar. Others will be provided with a YouTube link.
