What can quantum measurement tell us about the arrow of time? To answer this question, we use leading edge techniques involving superconducting circuits cooled to near absolute zero to capture “movies” of quantum behavior. In this fascinating talk on our quantum world, physics professor, Kater Murch, shares these captured quantum movies and discusses how we can infer an arrow of time from quantum measurement alone.
