BrisScience: Quantum sensing: From gravitational waves to ultra ultrasound

DATE // March 11, 2019

TIME // 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

LOCATION // The Edge, State Library of Queensland


The nanoscale world operates by different principles than our everyday world – quantum principles. Recently it has become possible to reach this quantum regime, with new laser-based technologies capable of measuring distances as small as a millionth of a millionth of a millionth of a metre – or a thousandth of the width of an atomic nucleus.

In this lecture, Professor Warwick Bowen will introduce ultraprecise sensors built from this technology, explore how quantum physics affects their behaviour, and investigate their applications in areas ranging from gravitational wave detection to biological imaging and ultrasound.
