Curious about the buzz around quantum, but don't really understand what the big deal is? Want to understand how the quantum revolution applies to you but don’t have a background in physics? To help the public engage with the second quantum revolution, the Mid-Atlantic Quantum Alliance (MQA) hosted a fireside chat between University of Maryland’s Vice President for Research, Dr. Laurie Locascio, and Nobel Laureate Dr. Bill Phillips. Dr. Phillips is a renowned science communicator in addition to being a leading scientist, and currently serves as a NIST Fellow and a University of Maryland Distinguished University Professor.
This fireside chat included:
- A discussion of Dr. Phillips’ Nobel journey,
- A basic introduction to quantum physics, and
- Answers to burning questions about the promise of quantum technologies.
