Oh yeah, TQW are back at full strength! Quantum James and Quantum Lia are fully representing with a sold out Pint of Science talk tonight in glamorous “Little Australia”, aka Clapham. Expect jokes about Ant & Dec, and very many Avengers Endgame spoilers.
James from TQW co-organised Late Light 2019, an evening of public and scientific lectures, and an exhibition of specially curated artworks inspired by research into Photonics. It was a huge success, with over 250 people attending.
The Quantum Workshop organized the King’s College London Physics Society’s quantum themed away weekend. We had the whole team representing!
We had an amazing night at the Royal Society Summer Exhibiton’s “lates” night, deftly fielding the eternal questions “what’s the application, then?”.
It was also TQW’s first chance to represent the Physics department at King’s College London.
Quantum James is part of London Light, an interdisciplinary network studying the applications of light. The Quantum Workshop was present and correct at their launch event, which also celebrated the International Day of Light!
Although the venue was somewhat like a nightmarishly large school from the 60s, TQW thoroughly enjoyed being at European Researcher’s Night in Vienna. Many deep chats, and many deep thanks to Ugur and Lana for their assistance.
TQW took a flight! We went on an aeroplane to Lisbon, to deliver a workshop to quantum scientists on optical levitation and doing science outreach, at a training school on Quantum Technologies for Space. It was fun! TQW didn’t get travel sick.
Quantum James has written an article about when quantum machines will take over the world!
Read it in Physics World, January 2016.
Quantum James writes an article for the Guardian, about doing quantum physics with living things:
A living thing in two places at once? This quantum quandary test is limited
James will be talking at the Institute of Physics in Bristol on the 10th March. TQW is of course coming with.
