Joins us as Xiruo Yan, PhD. student in QMI, talks about the spooky dual nature of light. He will present some of the "mind boggling" results of the quantum experiments and how we can use them.

Xiruo finished his Master's at UBC and bachelor's at the University of Waterloo. He's currently a PhD student in the photonics lab at SBQMI. He works on the application of quantum photonics in quantum information technology.

Full Abstract:

The wave-particle duality of light (or other quantum objects), where the photon (quanta of light) must be seen as in the form of wave as well as particle, has been generally accepted not one century ago. This quantum mechanical concept is already strange enough to us because there is no analogy of it in our daily classical world. Over time physicists have designed experiments to explore the quantum-ness of light further and have discovered more and more counter-intuitive spooky actions of light. In this presentation, Xiruo will introduce some of the “mind boggling” results of the quantum optical experiments and how we can make use of them.

We're excited to have you join us!
