Into the Quantum Realm

Argonne Outloud Public Lecture

NOTE: If you plan to attend this event in person, and you are a not a U.S. Citizen, please first complete this form and then visit the event registration site to reserve your place.

Argonne National Laboratory invites you to attend the next installment of the OutLoud Lecture Series. This is a hybrid event. You can attend in person or online.

Get ready, quantum, sci-fi, and Marvel fans. It’s showtime!

The quantum realm portrayed in the recently released film Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” may be fantastical, but it’s no more bizarre than the quantum realm of our own universe.

Join us for a two-part dive into the quantum universe. 

First, real-life scientists Carol Scarlett and Martin Holt will dig deep into how quantum is represented in film. What’s realistic? What’s fantasy? Will scientists be able to create the scenarios depicted in film?

Second, a quantum quiz show! We’ll invite audience members to the stage to test their skill at separating quantum fact from quantum fiction. Learn all about mind-boggling phenomena such as quantum tunneling, entanglement and superposition.

The deadline for in-person registrations is March 19, 2023.
