The TEQ teams work to establish the large-scale limit of quantum mechanics trying to answer questions that are so far unaddressed: why we have no evidence of non-classical behavior in the macroscopic world? How is quantumness lost as we abandon the microscopic domain? To find answers, TEQ partners are undergoing tests of quantum effects for systems whose mass is orders of magnitude larger than that employed in the most successful quantum experiments to date.

We work in quantum mechanics and its foundations: the measurement problem, the meaning of the wave function, entaglement and nonlocality, the quantum-to-classical transition, the relation between quantum theory and relativity/gravity. Read more

Thursday, June 14, 2018 Caitlin Jones (PhD student at University of Trieste) he Quantum Experiments at Space Scale (QUESS) is a satellite research project aiming to perform proof-of-concept demonstrations of long-distance quantum communication using a satellite named Micius. |

Tuesday, June 12, 2018 Dr. Marco Oppio (PhD) In principle, the lattice of elementary propositions of a generic quantum system admits a representation in real, complex or quaternionic Hilbert spaces as established by Solèr’s theorem (1995) closing a long-standing problem that can be traced back to the von Neumann’s mathematical formulation of q |
Monday, May 21, 2018 Giorgio Torrieri (Researcher, Istituto de Fisica Gleb Wataghin, DRCC, IFGW) The idea that the Unruh effect has a role in the apparent thermalization of systems produced in hadronic collisions has gained quite a lot of popularity in the last few years [1]. |
