About World Quantum Day
The World Quantum Day is an initiative from quantum scientists around the World, launched on 14 April 2021 as the countdown towards the first global celebration on 14 April 2022.
It is a decentralized and bottom-up initiative, inviting all scientists, engineers, educators, communicators, entrepreneurs, technologists, historians, philosophers, artists, museologists, producers, etc., and their organisations, to develop their own activities, such as outreach talks, exhibitions, lab tours, panel discussions, interviews, artistic creations, etc., to celebrate the World Quantum Day around the world. In Austria the following initiatives will take place:
Mario A. Campini and Nikolai Kiesel tell their interactive, award-winning short story “Twisted”. You will find the link to the podcast from the following webpage: https://quantum.univie.ac.at/events/
Virtual Education Session “Ask a Scientist”
Martin Ringbauer (University of Innsbruck) and Anne-Catherine de la Hamette (University of Vienna) answer questions about the fundamental concepts of quantum physics – superposition, interference, entanglement – and explain how quantum technologies will change the world.
The virtual session will be in German.
The virtual session will take place on Friday, April 14, 2023 at 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm. In the first 20 minutes, Anne-Catherine and Martin will introduce students step-by-step to the concepts of quantum physics and explain how quantum technology will change the world. After the introductory lectures, there will then be an approximately 40-minute “Ask a Scientist” Q&A session, where students can ask the two scientists their questions about quantum physics.
You can join the online session at 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm at the following zoom link:
