The Arrow of Time in Quantum Measurement

Wednesday, February 7, 2018 @ 7:00 pm-8:30 pm

Free and OPEN to ALL. Junior Academy members and middle and high school students are welcome and encouraged to attend. Reservations not required. Parking is free in the Zoo North lot or on the street in Forest Park.

Featured Speaker: Kater Murch, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Department of Physics, Washington University in St. Louis; 2017 Outstanding St. Louis Scientist Innovation Award recipient, The Academy of Science – St. Louis

What can quantum measurement tell us about the arrow of time? To answer this question, we use cutting 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.
