The weird and wonderful world of Quantum Materials - with Arielle Little
Some of the most notable achievements in the study of materials have led to technological breakthroughs which have shaped modern society; take, for example the solid-state transistors which are the foundation for computation. The study of the quantum mechanical properties of crystalline materials, or “hard condensed matter physics”, is a rich playground for fundamental physics.
Exploring the physics of black holes with quantum computers - with Vinay Ramasesh
In recent years a connection has emerged between the physics of information in black holes and the theory of quantum error correction. We are beginning to realize the technology to explore this connection experimentally.
