Thanks for a successful exhibition and debate

QUANTUM REVOLUTION IS MORE THAN
SCHRÖDINGER’s CAT: 
THE EXHIBITION

The exhibition was a combination of an interactive introduction to the world of quantum mechanics and a display of real-life materials science experiments from our labs.

 

Paul Drude Institute for Solid State Electronics illustrated the excitement of research on quantum effects and combined this with “Quantum: The Pop-Up Exhibition” developed by Canada’s Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo.

 

We presented how materials-science works, how quantum-effects are created and handled and how they principally change the concept of computing.


 

 

QUANTUM REVOLUTION IS MORE THAN 
SCHRÖDINGER’s CAT:
The Discussion

The Discussion started with two introductory talks on Quantum Computing (Dr. John Donohue, IQC Waterloo, Canada) and materials research for quantum devices (Prof. Dr. Henning Riechert, Director Paul-Drude-Institut). The panel of experts (Prof. Dr. Klaus Ensslin (ETH Zürich), Prof. Dr. Henning Riechert (PDI-Berlin), Dr. John Donohue (U. o. Waterloo und U. Paderborn), Prof. Dr. Matthias Beller (U. Rostock / Vice President of the Leibniz Association), and moderation Dr. C. Hucho, PDI) discussed the concept of the exhibition showcasing a combination of two fundamentally different approaches to communicate science.How much translation is necessary to make science accessible? Does Schrödingers Cat really help?
