Monday November 19 — Alice Through the Looking Glass: An Adventure into the Quantum Realm

 

Date: Monday, November 19

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Place: The Donut Whole

1720 E. Douglas

Speaker: Elizabeth Behrman, Ph.D.

Physics Professor, WSU

 

Albert Einstein once famously said that “G-d does not play dice!” But as science has progressed, it has become undeniably clear that even if G-d may not gamble, the universe does. All the time. I’ll take you down to the land of the very small, where everything is governed by probability, it is physically impossible to know anything with complete certainty, and things can effect changes over distances faster than light could travel. I’ll also show you how I use these cool and spook quirks of reality in the largest revolution ever in computers.

 

 Prof. Behrman earned her Ph.D. in Physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. A Sigma Xi speaker, she has taught nearly every physics course on the books, but her favorite is still quantum mechanics. When not physics-ing, you will find Prof. Behrman reading mountains of books and spending time with her daughter and her dog.

 

Come and enjoy the company of other science fans as you learn about the spooky, mysterious realm of quantum physics.

 

Event co-sponsored by Sigma Xi
