"Celebrating Aharanov: “The Cutting Edge of Modern Physics: Achievements and Opportunities”

"On the occasion of Yakir Aharonov's 80th birthday, a group of the world’s most accomplished physicists are visiting Chapman University for a conference on the foundations of quantum physics. On Thursday, August 16 at 5:30pm in the chapel of the Fish Interfaith Center, National Medal of Science winner Yakir Aharonov, Sir Michael Berry, Francois Englert, and Nobel Laureate Sir Tony Leggett will participate in an open public discussion to kick off the two-day conference.

The assembled speakers have each made remarkable contributions to modern physics: The recent announcement by CERN of the discovery of the so-called “God particle” is based upon theoretical work done by Prof. Francois Englert (in the physics community, the particle is referred to as the Brout-Englert-Higgs boson); Prof. Leggett’s pioneering work on superfluidity was honored with the 2003 Nobel Prize; and Sir Michael Berry is known for the discovery of the Berry-phase, the sister-phenomenon to the Aharonov-Bohm phase, work done by Chapman University’s Prof. Yakir Aharonov.

Quantum physics is the most successful scientific theory in history and is crucial for many of the technological advances that drive our economy. Recently, leading science advisors to Congress stated, “America’s future prosperity and economic security may rely [on quantum physics] to accomplish feats ... that are impossible with today’s technology.” This public event, sponsored by Chapman University’s Institute for Quantum Studies, will provide attendees with an opportunity to listen to and ask questions of some of the people whose work has most influenced our understanding of the quantum world."
