В МФТИ пройдёт лекция Александра Львовского Quantum physics: from paradox to technology

29 мая в 20:30 в конференц-зале Международного студенческого центра (2 этаж КСП) состоится лекция Quantum physics: from paradox to technology. Её проведёт профессор кафедры физики и астрономии Университета Калгари и руководитель исследовательской группы Российского квантового центра Александр Львовский. Встреча состоится в рамках Европейской физической олимпиады, которая проходит на базе Физтеха с 28 мая по 1 июня. Помимо её участников, на лекцию приглашаются все желающие студенты МФТИ. Рабочий язык — английский.

We will discuss:

  • what drove Professor Max Planck to despair;

  • what will happen if you try to photograph a quantum;

  • how a football match would look like in the microcosm;

  • how you can detect a hypersensitive bomb and avoid an explosion;

  • who is stronger: Bruce Willis or the quantum computer;

  • why quantum theory contradicts common sense;

  • how to cope with these contradictions without harming yourself or society;

  • and whether Schrödinger’s cat is alive.

Alexander Lvovsky is an experimental physicist. He was born and raised in Moscow and did his undergraduate in Physics at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. In 1993, he became a graduate student in Physics at Columbia University in New York City. After completing his Ph. D. in 1998, he spent a year at the University of California, Berkeley as a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Physics, and then five years at Universität Konstanz in Germany, first as an Alexander von Humboldt postdoctoral fellow, then as a research group leader in quantum-optical information technology. In 2004 he became Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Calgary, where he remains today, working at the same time as a part-time research group leader at the Russian Quantum Center. Alexander is a past Canada Research Chair, a lifetime member of the American Physical Society, a Fellow of the Optical Society of America and a winner of many awards – most notably the International Quantum Communications award, commendation letter from the Prime Minister of Canada and the Emmy Noether research award of the German Science Foundation. His research has been featured by CBC, NBC, Wired, New Scientist, MIT Technology Review, TASS, Daily Mail, and other media. Alexander conducts wide-profile experimental and theoretical research in the fields of quantum optics, quantum information, and quantum machine learning.
