The Second Quantum Revolution is a Wilhelm-and-Else-Heraeus symposium held in honour of the visionary and pioneering work of Alain Aspect.
The symposium will be held in honour of Alain Aspect for his pioneering contributions in the field of quantum optics. It will bring together – for one day at the French Embassy in Berlin – highly motivated young scientists and students mainly from Germany and France as well as world-leading scientists, amongst them three Nobel laureates.
The event will provide a unique opportunity for these young scientists to engage with pioneers. Their presentations and the following discussions will focus on those scientific findings and breakthroughs that led to „The Second Quantum Revolution“. Its far-reaching scientific and technological implications will largely be discussed.
