Entangled Islands – Malta Café Scientifique 2018/19
8 May @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Entangled Islands – Prof. André Xuereb
Date and Time: Wednesday, 8 May, 2019 at 7:30pm
Venue: Studio B, Spazju Kreattiv
Doors open at 7pm and seats are on afirst come first served basis.
Entanglement is one of the most mysterious and astonishing features of quantum mechanics. No doubt that Einstein would have been amazed to see how what he famously called “spooky action at a distance” is now the basis of completely new technologies. In this talk Prof. XuerebfromtheDepartment of Physics, Faculty of ScienceattheUniversity of Malta will introduce the concept of entanglement starting from scratch. Prof. Xuereb willshow how togetherwith a group of researchers recently entangled Malta and Sicily, and will explain how this fantastic new tool can help give humanity super-secure communication systems, super-fast computers, and teleportation.
