Aalto Festival showcases
the talents of Aalto University
students, graduates and faculty.
Sat 21 May 2016
17.00 – 19.00
What if we could solve one of the biggest challenges facing humankind today, the ever growing energy consumption? What if we could transmit highly sensitive data without risk, or simulate reliably properties of materials before they even exist? Our current understanding of superconductivity and its applications in quantum technology allows us to expect a lot from this peculiar phenomenon.
Academy Professor Jukka Pekola from the Aalto University Low Temperature Laboratory will shed light on this topic in the first ever Helsinki Science Café in May 2016. He will touch upon the physics behind this phenomenon, and especially its perspectives in quantum technology and future applications. No knowledge of physics or mathematics is required, just curiosity and interest in science.
The language of the event is English and it is completely free of charge.
