Quantum Entanglement Workshop  

Wednesday, April 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, 2009, 7:00–9:30 PM
Located at MIT Lincoln Laboratory – 244 Wood Street, Lexington, MA, 02420, USA

The accelerating understanding of quantum entanglement, a technology that non-locally connects minuscule nano-structures across vast distances of space, in apparent violation of both causality and relativity in classical physics, is leading to a new generation of quantum technologies such as: Quantum Computing; Quantum Cryptographic Key Distribution; Quantum Ghost Imaging or Illumination; Quantum Metrology; Quantum Lithography; Quantum Sensing and Feedback Control; and Spintronics instead of Electronics, not to mention the unbelievable Quantum Teleportation of Information. To learn about these amazing new technologies and separate fact from science fiction, attend this local LEOS Workshop to discover the latest results at the cutting edge of research from ten of the foremost researchers in these emerging fields.
