Quantum for Dummies
On the 7th of December from 11.30 till 15, Pepijn Pinkse (Professor of Adaptive Quantum Optics) will be giving his inaugural lecture 'Light on Quantum Technology'. Quantum technology is seen as a promising technology for the future. But what exactly is quantum, how does it work, and how do we apply it? In the run-up to Pepijn's inauguration (7 December, 16.00h), QuantumDelta NL, MinacNed, and MESA+ jointly organize a symposium, Quantum for Dummies.
Location: Waaier 3, University of Twente
