60 years of the laser and the international day of light

11.05 → 16.05 2020 | Online Germany

On this day, we celebrate three events: the 60th birthday of the laser, the international day of light and the 25th jubilee of the famous paper of Ignacio Cirac and Peter Zoller on how to build a quantum computer with trapped ions – an epochal milestone on the way into the second quantum revolution.
Together with the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics, we invite you to discover the fascinating world of quantum science and research through a series of daily live lab tours and insightful interviews (Instagram @MaxPlanckQuantum) culminating with engaging live talks on the 16th of May (MPQ YouTube).
