Bird navigation: The Quantum Around You

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Quantum phenomena often seem mysterious to us, because we cannot “see” them. What if some other animal species could? “Seeing” quantum correlations between pairs of electrons might be precisely the way certain birds navigate from North-South. Join UNSW Australia’s Andrea Morello in this series which proves that quantum mechanics has more of an impact on your daily life than you think.
Associate Professor Andrea Morello is a researcher and lecturer in the School of Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications at UNSW Australia in Sydney. He was one of the 2013 Australian Prime Minister’s Prizes for Science, the Malcolm McIntosh Prize for Physical Scientist of the Year.
