An Institute of Physics Midlands Branch Lecture by Professor Kai Bongs

The Nobel Prize winning technology to control atoms at the quantum limit has had a huge impact on our ability to harness quantum physics opening prospects from fundamental physics to everyday applications. It in particular enables building well-controlled quantum models for the many-body physics behind transport of charges and excitations in conductors and biological systems. In addition it underpins precision sensors for gravity, rotation, electromagnetic fields and time, which promise huge economic impact. In this lecture from the Institute of Physics (IOP), Professor Kai Bongs will present recent research results in the transport of soliton-like excitations in matterwaves and the developments towards applications of quantum sensors within the UK National Quantum Technology Hub in Sensors and Metrology.

Tea and coffee will be provided from 7pm in the Tea Room of the Poynting building. The lecture will begin at 7.30pm.
