Saving the world with quantum mechanics!
Saving the world with quantum mechanics! - Lucy Whalley
Join us for another in our series of scientific talks! Please book at £1.66 via Eventbrite to guarantee your place. £2 on the door
A massive increase in computing power over the last few decades has meant that quantum mechanical calculations previously unfeasible are now a reality. Using supercomputers, we can apply quantum mechanics to one of the biggest challenges society faces – global warming.
Join Lucy (lucydot.github.io), from Imperial College London, as she discusses her PhD research based around quantum mechanics, materials science and solar cells. Including:
- some weird and wonderful concepts from quantum mechanics
- supercomputers and clever approximations
- new materials for turning sunlight into electricity
(No previous scientific experience necessary!!)
