Entangled: The series – QUANTUM + Literature

Mike & Ophelia Lazaridis Quantum Nano Centre - Lazaridis QNC 0101
Thursday, Apr 26, 2018 at 7:00 PM EDT 

Event Details

The invention of quantum physics in the early 20th century forced scientists to reconsider many cherished ideas from classical physics, leading to revolutionary changes in our scientific and philosophical understanding of the universe. Quantum phenomena have also proven to be a rich source of metaphors and inspiration for fiction. 
 
Chad Orzel will describe some of the strangest phenomena in quantum mechanics-- topics like entanglement, quantum measurement, and Schrodinger's infamous cat-- and discuss some of their manifestations in literature and film
