Description

Quantum of Spin exhibit at Royal Society Summer Exhibition

What connects state-of-the-art medical imaging and the quest to build the ultimate supercomputers? The answer: a quantum property called spin which is possessed by electrons and atomic nuclei. This exhibit shows the intersection between our everyday experiences of magnetism and the fascinating 'weirdness' of quantum mechanics. The scientists behind the exhibit will provide intuitive explanations of how current technologies work as well insights into what the future holds for quantum technologies based on spin.
