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

Angelo Bassi was hosted on Tele4 and interviewed about the research work, relations between the academic world and the general public, the University of Trieste and the Italian brain drain.

Here the link to the interview.

How does the world crystallise from quantum weirdness? We might just have the answer, says a new article on the cover of the July 14, 2018 issue of the New Scientist. And that answer could be given by the TEQ project, lead by Angelo Bassi.

Tuesday, July 3, 2018

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.

The 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.
