FIP PHYSICS MATTERS Live Colloquium: New Horizons in Quantum Mechanics by Prof. Vahid Karimipour

By Christine Marie-Therese Darve posted 09-01-2021 16:18

Join us on September 30, 2021 at 10 am EDT (5 pm Tehran time) !

Prof Vahid Karimipour will discuss how almost 100 years after the final formulation of Quantum Mechanics, new phenomena are appearing in the horizon of the microscopic world, the description of which greatly enhances our understanding of both the formalism and the foundations of quantum mechanics. We also find new ways to harbor quantum phenomena for revolutionizing our technologies in various ways. In this talk, we briefly talk about these developments.

This event is co-hosted by Mohammad Reza Ejtehadi, President of the Physics Society of Iran, who will give a short introduction on Physics in Iran.

Vahid Karimipour, after getting a degree in Electrical Engineering, got his PhD in Physics from Sharif University of Technology in Tehran in 1993 where he has been a Professor of Physics since 2001. 

His research interests cover theoretical aspects of quantum information, including entanglement theory, quantum channels, reference frames and topological quantum computation. 

He is an editor of European Physics Journal D, International Journal of Quantum Information, Turkish Journal of Physics and an outstanding referee of American Physical Society and a Simons Associate of International Center for Theoretical Physics in Trieste, Italy.

Mohammad Reza Ejtehadi obtained his Ph.D. in physics from the Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, in 1998. He has worked at the Max-Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz and the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, and in 2004 he joined the Sharif University of Technology, where he has held a professor position since 2013. He applies statistical physics and simulation to various problems in soft matter, complex and biological systems. He has been elected as the president of the Physics Society of Iran since 2016.
