Conversations on the Quantum World: Why Space Isn't What You Think It Is

Event Details

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.

Zoom in on a digital image far enough and you will discover the distinct pixels that make the picture. Could the universe itself be similarly pixelated? Theoretical physicist Kathryn Zurek and experimental physicist Rana Adhikari are on the hunt for this pixelation, a signature of what is known as quantum gravity, a set of theories that attempts to unite the microscopic world of quantum physics with the macroscopic world of gravity. In this event, they will speak with science writer Whitney Clavin about how they use innovative instrumentation and approaches to try to solve the mystery of quantum gravity.


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.
