Professor Anton Zeilinger has visited Sharif University of Technology
Professor Anton Zeilinger
a world-leading quantum physicist from the University of Vienna and
Vienna University of Technology, and the President of the Austrian
Academy of Sciences, has visited the Department of Physics, Sharif
University of Technology, on September 8, 2015.
Professor Zeilinger has
led numerous pioneering experiments on the foundations of quantum
mechanics, quantum optics, and quantum information science, such as the
first realizations of quantum teleportation and one-way quantum
computation. He is also one of the physicists who proved the celebrated
GHZ theorem ("Z" denotes Zeilinger), and the first experimentalist to
realize this theorem in the lab.
In the department, Prof. Zeilinger first visited the Quantum Information
Science group (led by Prof. Karimipour), and had a meeting with the
faculty members and students of the group. He also had a meeting with
other faculty members of the department, and discussed potential avenues
for scientific collaborations. This visit ended by a tour of the Laser
research lab (led by Prof. Sadighi) and the X-ray Photoelectron
Spectroscopy lab (led by Prof. Taghavinia)."
