Room LT3 (BEDB1.75 in the new room system), Bedson building, University of Newcastle, NE1 7RU

Speakers: Dr Matt Jones (Durham University)

Dr Matt Jones will be talking about his research.

Can wave particle duality make us rich? In this talk I will present a critical look at the UK Quantum technology programme, a 5-year £270 million investment announced by the Chancellor in Autumn 2013. I will cover what the program actually is, and illustrate the idea of quantum technology with atom interferometer-based sensors for gravity and acceleration. Can the nearly 100 year old idea of wave-particle duality really keep us safe and make us rich?
