Event Details

Christopher C. Gerry is Professor of Physics at Lehman, where his areas of research include theoretical quantum optics, quantum information theory, quantum metrology and sensing, and group theoretical methods in quantum optics.

Using a selection of key experiments performed over the past 30 years, Gerry and co-author Kimberly Bruno present a discussion of the strikingly counterintuitive phenomena of the quantum world that defy explanation in terms of everyday common sense reasoning. 

They discuss why the Schrödinger state of a cat being simultaneously alive and dead can never be seen in the everyday world, and they demonstrate how quantum mechanics provides a consistent explanation of phenomena, while an everyday, classical picture of the world does not.
