As part of the "Quantum Transport Team" led by Ronald Hanson (TU Delft), Tim Taminiau investigates novel quantum mechanical phenomena in nanometer-scale structures. For those without a doctorate in physics, this is teleportation on the level of single atoms. They aim to find fundamental breakthroughs and its possible applications - for instance in quantum computing. For this evening, Tim will present an informal lecture on teleportation. With the assistance of a classic sci-fi movie, Tim will explore the exciting possibilities and common misconceptions surrounding his cutting-edge research . No prior knowledge needed! Tim will explain it all. Interested in the Quantum Transport Team's work? Check out this New York Times article about their recent research.
