From fleas to qubits: how optics shapes physics

Public talk by Ian Walmsley at the Vienna Graduate Conference on Complex Quantum Systems 2019

Ceremonial Hall, University of Vienna
Universitätsring 1, 1010 Vienna


Light has had a huge influence on the development of physics, and continues to help us push the frontiers of knowledge. From fundamental phenomena that yield new understanding about the world, to instruments and methods that provide enabling technologies for discovery from gravitational waves to sub-cellular biodynamics, optics continues to inform and to shape the world. I will explore why this is the case, from both a historical perspective and looking to the future.
