Discover quantum technologies with the Quantum Tour
ICFO’s KTT Outreach unit has joined the quantum community at ICFO, with the support of the AXA Research Fund Chair, to launch an original and exciting way to learn about Quantum Physics and its underlying applications. The Quantum Tour seeks to bring the world of quantum physics closer to society in general and in particular to non-academic audiences.
This virtual tour takes place on an ingenious platform that is segmented in areas inspired by the ICFO building. There you can find animations and videos in which several Group Leaders and young researchers of ICFO have participated. We invite you to explore the platform to gain an overview of some of the core research developments in this field as well as of some of the applications.
