These seminars examine the science of how to bring macroscopic (large) systems into the quantum regime. The preparation of large Schrodinger cats is one of the long sought goals of quantum science. Researchers seek to do this for many reasons – to see if it can be done at all – does quantum mechanics still hold for large objects – is there new science that appears when objects become large/massive? Can macroscopic/large quantum systems be useful as precision sensors – and how can we preserve/protect the large scale quantum properties in such systems. These series of talks (experimental and theoretical), will show some facets/aspects of how some researchers are aiming towards the building of large Quantum Cats.
Coffee and Okinawan Donuts are supplied during the morning.
