Colloquia


Colloquia

We plan to return partly to in-person talks. These talks will be held in the interim lecture hall B 0.32 at MPQ and can additionally be attended online. Some talks remain online only.

For events in the Lecture hall 2G plus regulations now apply. This means that in order to join an in-person talk, only vaccinated or recovered persons (“2G”) who can show their vaccination certificate or the CovPass App and a valid negative test result (“plus”) are admitted to the Lecture Hall. Vaccinated or recovered persons who have already received their third “booster vaccination” are exempt from the obligation to get tested.
Whether facemasks have to be worn inside the lecture hall will be communicated in the e-mail announcement for each talk separately. In any case, you will need a medical facemask in the hallway. Audience not affiliated with MPQ are welcome to join in person as long as they meet 2G criteria.


Details on how to participate online are distributed via the mailing lists [wiss-mpq] and [Mpq-colloquium-stream]. To receive this information, please register using the adjacent link.

Scientific organization of the talks:  Dr. Stephan Dürr and Dr. Thomas Udem

Location: +++ONLINE TALK+++

+++ONLINE COLLOQUIUM+++ Infrared photon counting with superconducting nanowires (Prof. Robert Hadfield)

A host of emerging 21st century technologies rely on the ability to detect single photons at infrared wavelengths. Photon counting is an essential tool in quantum optics experiments. Quantum key distribution allows secure communications over long distance fibre optic networks or even from ground to space. [more]

+++ONLINE COLLOQUIUM+++ The 3rd quantum revolution: Quantum Algorithmic Experiments (MCQST-Colloquium) (Prof. Dorit Aharonov )

Following the second quantum revolution, which had completely undermined how we think of algorithms, the last decade gave birth to a third quantum revolution - which has changed the way we think of physical experiments. I will demonstrate this with some examples of how quantum computational ideas such as quantum error correction and quantum algorithms can be used to enhance conventional quantum experiments, to achieve increased efficiency and precision in sensing, metrology, and more.
