Leopold Infeld Colloquium - January 13, 2020

We cordially invite to the Jerzy Pniewski and Leopold Infeld Colloquium of the Faculty of Physics which will be held on Monday, January 13, 2020 at 4:30 pm. in the lecture room 0.03. The speaker will be Professor Rafal Demkowicz-Dobrzanski from Faculty of Physics, University of Warsaw, who will deliver a lecture on:

"Quantum technologies A.D. 2020 - expectations vs. reality"

Quantum computers, quantum cryptography, quantum sensors and quantum internet are just a couple of highlight concepts of the rapidly developing field of quantum technologies. We have made a long journey from the times when many physicists believed that we will never be able to manipulate, control and observe individual quantum systems. Nevertheless, we are still at the point were quantum devices are more a technological curiosity rather than practical and robust commercial products. There are a few challenges we still need to overcome to make the quantum technology dream come true and they seem... not to be completely hopeless.

Before the Colloquium, at 4 pm, we invite you to informal discussions over coffee and cookies in the hall in front of the lecture room.
