The Quantum Tamers
Revealing Our Weird and Wired FutureUnknown - 2010
Beginning with a condensed history of classical and quantum physics to contextualize the current state of quantum science, this highly visual program takes viewers to the frontiers of quantum computation. Wave-particle duality, entanglement and superposition, the EPR Paradox, SchrÃ¶dingerâ€™s Cat, the famous double-slit experiment, and the â€œnoisy observer effectâ€ flash by like road markers on this high-speed journey to the realm of quantum teleportation, quantum cryptography, and quantum computing. Stephen Hawking and 18 other quantum visionaries provide clear and insightful explanations in this clever and sophisticated introduction to an extremely complex subjectâ€”and exciting preview of our weird and wired future! Participating scientists include Dorit Aharonov, Alain Aspect, David Cory, Joseph Emerson, Nicolas Gisin, Daniel Gottesman, Lucien Hardy, Stephen Hawking, Raymond Laflamme, Seth Lloyd, Gerard Milburn, Peter Shor, Barbara Terhal, Andrew White, David Wineland, Stuart Wolf, William K. Wootters, Anton Zeilinger, and Wojciech Zurek.
