Seminar today by Prof. Vivishek Suhdir!

Prof. Sudhir (ME, MIT) will present the ECE seminar today at 3pm MT titled “Quantum mechanics up to the human-scale.” It is open to the public and should be accessible to a wide audience. Zoom info here.
Abstract: Why do human-scale objects apparently not follow the rules of quantum physics? And yet, we believe that quantum mechanics is the correct underlying description of nature. I will address this discrepancy through a series of experiments done in collaboration with my colleagues and group members. These experiments show that objects weighing as much as 10 kg can be realized in quantum states; that, one can directly observe the consequence of Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle on nano-scale objects; that the act of measurement not only changes the subject of the measurement, but also the state of the apparatus used; and that atomic vibrations in everyday objects can be prepared in non-classical and entangled states at ambient conditions.
