The Cambridge University Scientific Society (SciSoc) exists “to promote all branches of science and to make science accessible to all members of the University”. We do this mainly via weekly talks on a wide range of subjects, but we also organise social events for our members.
- Quantum Games with Spins Alight — Dr Mete Atatüre
Quantum mechanical phenomena are shielded from our daily perception of nature and require intricate designs and experiments to reveal them. So, it is no wonder that quantum mechanics remained a curiosity-driven exercise in most part of the 20th century. Will the new century see quantum-enabled technologies immersed in our lives, and if so, which ones? In this context, we will find out what the interface of photons and confined spins in solids has to offer.
