Professor Anton Zeilinger from the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information in Vienna, Austria, will give a public lecture at Tampere University on Quantum Entanglement. Nobel Laureate Zeilinger is one of the most distinguished physicists in quantum science and foundations.

Quantum entanglement - the connection between two or more widely separated measurement results was called by Einstein "spooky" action. The Nobel prize winner Erwin Schrödinger called it "the essential feature" which forces us to abandon our cherished views of the world. In the talk the Nature of entanglement will be presented in a way open to the general public, leading to applications in quantum communication and quantum computation. Such experiments led to new fundamental question which might lead to new applications.

Nobel Laureate Prof. Anton Zeilinger is one of the most distinguished physicists in quantum science and foundations. Amongst many other things, he is known for matter wave interferometry, the discovery of three-particle entanglement as an extreme demonstration of quantum nonlocality, the experimental realization of quantum teleportation, and countless seminal works on quantum foundations, communications and computing. In addition to being awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2022, he received some of the most prestigious prizes of physics, e.g., Wolf-Prize, King Faisal Prize, Heisenberg medal, Descartes Prize, Isaac Newton Medal and many more.
