This debate will be examined by Alain Aspect of the Institute d’Optique and Ecole Polytechnique, Palaiseau, France, during a Perimeter Institute Public Lecture to be held on Wednesday, October 3rd, 2007 at 7:00 pm in Waterloo, Ontario.
In tracing the history, Aspect will explain why Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr argued over the nature of “entangled” states – where pairs of sub-atomic particles are strangely correlated – from 1935 until their very deaths. He will also share how, decades later, John Bell discovered his famous inequalities that made it possible for experimentalists, including Alain Aspect and others, to settle the great debate and help propel a new era of fundamental understanding with concepts and methods that seek to harness unique properties of atoms to process and transmit information.ABOUT THE SPEAKER:

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...
