Here’s Great Tip: TEDxCaltech – Simon Fölling – Quantum Simulations


Here is Something You Should See…


Simon Fölling studies quantum many-body systems, such as the ones found in magnetic and semiconducting materials, by using ultracold atomic gases. He started to work in the field when graduating from the University of Heidelberg, and subsequently during his PhD in Mainz, Germany and a postdoc at Harvard University. He is still so fascinated by this field that he now started a new project in the field at the University of Munich.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event: In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)

On January 14, 2011, Caltech hosted TEDxCaltech, an exciting one-day event to honor Richard Feynman, Nobel Laureate, Caltech physics professor, iconoclast, visionary, and all-around “curious character.” Visit TEDxCaltech.com for more details.

  1. Probability dominance in e-Pi-i resonance/holographic imaging, (name-calling doesnt help).
    Neutrons "decay" to become Protons and Electrons structured in orbital resonances, standing wave positioning/resonance, that is second order resonance superconducting, (applied intuition to the wave-package format).
    Which is why Graphene is interesting?
    Great sciencing

  2. Extending the idea that any Electron in the universe is the same item of information covering (conducting) all existence, then the same principle applies to a point connection, except that implies that the relationship with every other feature is connected together in one instant of related probability. Ie conduction is a manifestation of relationships of probability exclusion, which is where all shapes and geometry come from. An infinite spectrum of information self divides into relative probability features. Super Conducting nodes depend on resonance as in AM / FM or crystal coherence so only actual combinations of atoms can "solve" the question?

  3. Fascinating talk. I also think like many TED talks it would have been better still if the presenter didn't have to deal with heavy time pressure and stage fright.  Maybe if they dimmed the house lights a bit more and made the countdown clock less obtrusive?

  4. Mind blowing statement at 3:48 a supercomputer large as the universe just to store the data of 300 electrons simulation!!!!!!!!! that is one of the best talks at TED about Quantum Computing that i've seen so far, it would have been even better if they provided slides for the presentation i think.

  5. you can tell the people in the crowd (when the camera shows them) who doesn't have a clue what the speaker is talking about by those who have a huge grin on their faces, for example 3:20

    if you have a huge grin on your face during a physics lecture then you are either the speaker's mom or you are rapidly realizing you went to the wrong lecture room at TED's but deciding to stay for giggles so you can tell your friends what you listened to
