Prof. Dr. Christoph Becher
Is the moon there when nobody looks?
For Kinderuni Saar we have created a contribution on the topic of quantum physics. We cover the topics measurement process in quantum physics, superposition states and realism - prepared for a young audience. The video "Ist der Mond auch da, wenn keiner hinschaut" (in German) is available on Youtube as well as a video of the visit of a school class in Homburg and an accompanying booklet (in German). The video and the school visit were also a contribution to the BMBF-funded project QUANTAG - Quanta in Everyday Life.
CRC/TRR 306 QuCoLiMa starts on 01.01.2021
The transregio coordinated research center 306: QuCoLiMa (Quantum Cooperativity of Light and Matter) with members from universities Erlangen, Mainz and Saarbrücken starts on Jan 1st, 2021. It intends to explore the distinctive traits of quantum cooperativity within a large variety of quantum platforms at the intersection of quantum optics and condensed matter.
