Unboxing Quantum: Seeing the World in a Different Light

May 16, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Everyday, the interaction between light and matter is giving us information about the world that we live in through our eyes. But the range of frequencies that our eyes are sensitive to — visible light — is extremely limited. How does light interact with matter on other frequencies? And how can we leverage light-matter interaction at these other frequencies to learn about our world? In this presentation we will talk about the properties of light, and how scientists leverage these properties in their research.
