Solving the mysteries of the quantum world


The quantum world holds many mysteries waiting to be solved and explained. UCalgary scholar Barry Sanders spends his time piecing together some of the puzzles related to quantum science.

In this webinar, Sanders explains his research on quantum information related to photons — the elementary particles underlying the properties of quantum mechanics — helping us understand some of the missing pieces.
