Fundamental and universal, quantum physics has been, in the century since its discovery, more thoroughly explored and more precisely tested than any other physical law. It stands as a shining beacon of human achievement resisting all attempts to undermine it and yet, it remains hugely enigmatic. In this public lecture Professor Phil Meeson will use live demonstrations of quantum physics experiments, including the famous single-photon double-slit experiment, to support a greater appreciation of the fundamental principles of quantum mechanics, such as wave-particle duality. The lecture is aimed at all those interested in quantum physics and will be particularly suitable for GCSE/A level Physics students.
