Prozess: We often hear about the wonderfully strange predictions of quantum physics, from things being in two places at once, to teleportation. And it’s all true, these experiments have been realised with light, atoms and even molecules. But where is my teleporter! Why do we not see quantum things happening in the world around us?
The Quantum Workshop is a cutting edge experiment, where lasers are used to levitate objects right before your eyes. This is a key technique in pushing quantum physics into our world. Come and quiz real researchers, and see physics in action.
