Professor Charles Adams

Head of Quantum Light and Matter

Department of Physics

Durham University

The solar spectrum provided the clues that the universe cannot be explained using the classical physics of Newton. We live in a quantum world but quantumness is shy and we have to work hard to see it or use it.

Whereas the golden age of understanding quantum theory began 100 years ago, the golden age of quantum technology is happening now. Professor Adams will try to explain how soon we might expect quantum computers with unimaginable power.
