Unboxing Quantum

May 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Everyday, the interaction between light and matter is giving us information about the world that we live in through our eyes. But the range of frequencies that our eyes are sensitive to — visible light — is extremely limited. How does light interact with matter on other frequencies? And how can we leverage light-matter interaction at these other frequencies to learn about our world? In this presentation, UBC PhD student MengXing (Ketty) Na will talk about the properties of light, and how scientists leverage these properties in their research.

Unboxing Quantum is a public seminar series in which researchers at the Stewart Blusson Quantum Matter Institute at The University of British Columbia talk about what they’re working on, and why it matters to you. Presented in plain language, this series makes quantum science accessible: our goal is to provide meaningful, interesting information about quantum science and technology to general audiences.
