Inside the Light [electronic resource]: The Mystery of Light in Quantum Physics

Tumbiolo, Marco
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
The 2012 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded jointly to Serge Haroche and another physicist "for groundbreaking experimental methods that enable measuring and manipulation of individual quantum systems." Inside the Light focuses on the spectacular achievements in quantum physics of Dr. Haroche as well as the University of Sussex's Wolfgang Lange and others as it introduces viewers to the interaction of light and matter at the smallest possible scale. A lyrical portrait of the quantum world that addresses the creation and destruction of photons, quantum jumps, entanglement, quantum information processing, and more in a way that will appeal both to novices and the knowledgeable.
