All you ever wanted to know about photons (but were afraid to ask)

16-18 Queen Square, Bath, Avon, BA1 2HN

Speakers: Dr Peter Mosley (University of Bath)

Single photons – individual particles of light – have enabled groundbreaking experiments that test the foundations of quantum physics. Furthermore, single photons are likely to play an important role in the future of communication, sensing, and computation. However, making a reliable source of single photons is not as easy as just dimming a light bulb.

This talk will discuss generation mechanisms for single and entangled pairs of photons, as well as the fundamental experiments and technological advances for which they can be used.

Free entry, no need to register.
Talk begin at 7pm, doors open at 6.30pm for tea/coffee/biscuits.
