Caging Schrödinger's Cat
Quantum Nanotechnology
Weird new possibilities emerge as we explore the nanoworld, the universe at the length scale of a billionth of a metre. Here the theory of quantum mechanics bewilders our everyday common sense, as Erwin Schrödinger famously expressed when he imagined a cat that was both dead and alive at the same time! Now Dr Simon Benjamin shows us how experts in physics, chemistry and materials science are working together to harness this strange reality. Underlying their research is the promise of building what may be the most exotic and powerful technology ever conceived: the quantum computer.

Good For Non-Scientists
Benjamin explains some fundamental issues in quantum mechanics well, and how he hopes to use QM practically. I had only two small gripes. 1. It did not need to be six parts. 2. It is already several years old, so if progress was possible as quickly as he suggests, this podcast would be out of...Read full review »
