Revolutionary Quantum Physics

The first half of the 20th century saw a radical shift in the way we understand nature. The then emerging theory of Quantum Mechanics was able to explain and predict the actions of nature at a microscopic level for the first time. Since then it has provided the necessary theoretic background to design and manufacture semiconductor microchips and lasers, which are the lifeblood of our information and communication-based world. Without Max Planck you would not be able to look at this online Xmas calendar.

However, there is also a price to pay. The theory is so counter-intuitive that even one hundred years after its conception, quantum physics still leaves many of us scratching our heads over concepts like superposition and entanglement.

Ever thought how two massive particles can got through both gaps of a double slit?

!CAUTION! Do not try this during your X-mas holidays. For quantized experts ONLY!

Or how can pairs of entangled particles separated over 1000s of km, instantaneously adjust their physical properties depending on the measurement of only one particle?

Don’t despair, you don’t need to understand it in order to use it!

More information on the fantastic applications tomorrow.
