Conversations on the Quantum World : Why Space Isn’t What You Think It Is
Quantum science emerged from studies of the smallest objects in nature. Today, it promises to deepen our understanding of the universe and deliver groundbreaking technology, from quantum computers to ultra-precise measuring devices to next-generation materials, with Caltech defining the discipline. In Conversations on the Quantum World, you will hear directly from Caltech experts about the next quantum revolution and have the opportunity to ask your own questions.

Magnify a digital picture enough times and you will discover the pixels that make up the image. Could the universe itself be pixelated, or “quantized”? Theoretical physicist Kathryn Zurek and experimental physicist Rana Adhikari are on the hunt for this phenomenon, a signature of what is known as quantum gravity. They will speak with science writer Whitney Clavin about how they use innovative instrumentation and approaches to unite the microscopic world of quantum physics with the macroscopic world of gravity.
