The Mystery and Mastery of Photons

Speaker: Professor Charles S. Adams

We know that light is made of photons, considered to be one of the fundamental constituents of the Universe. Being inherently quantal, photons inherit all the mystery of our quantum World, but oddly this quantumness remains remarkably elusive and controlling individual photons remains tricky. This lecture will demonstrate some of the mysterious properties of photons and consider what might be possible if we can control them.
