Time of Challenges: Harnessing the
Uncertainties of the Quantum World
Pabellón Argentina - Ciudad Universitaria
With Ahmed Zewail, Nobel Prize in Chemistry 1999
The Quantum revolution was trigger in 1900 when Max Planck described the radiation of a body. A hundred years later, it is already a complete theory which has been fully verified. However, even today keeps surprising both specialists and profanes predicting and describing phenomena that do not have an alternate framework within our everyday intuition. The wealth of phenomena arising from its intrinsic properties such as uncertainties, superpositions, interferences and decoherence, give rice to innovative technologies that result in impressive economic an cultural changes. Let's only remind that the new materials, nuclear energy, electronics, informatics and new techniques of medical and biochemical diagnosis which are just a few of its descendants.
This meeting convokes scientists who work at the frontiers of these developments and who will discuss the progress and perspectives of the field in accessible language.
Specially invited are the university students of Chemistry, Biology, Engineering, Physics, Mathematics and Science Education as well as the public with some professional training in related areas.
