Quantum Physics on Stage | February 25th @Theaterhaus Stuttgart

The third Q-Science Slam once again attracted more than 400 fans of quantum physics to the sold-out Theaterhaus Stuttgart. They were not disappointed. Five slammers took the audience on a rapid journey through quantum physics. Not an easy task for the slammers and a lot of fun for the audience.

Five exciting presentations later, the audience was spoilt for choice as to who could take home the winning prizes of 1,000, 500, and 250 Euros:

1st placeChristoph Sünderhauf, PhD student at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Garching -  Quantum scrambling against frustrating rejections

2nd placeSabrina Patsch, PhD student at Freie Universität Berlin - Weapons for super heroes

3rd place: Julian Maisch, PhD student at the University of Stuttgart - Wedding planning on a quantum computer

Places 4, Louis-Victor Schäfer, Master student at the University of Stuttgart, and 5, Fabian Spallek, PhD student at the University of Freiburg, do not have to hide either and can look forward to 1 million Euro annual lottery tickets of Aktion Mensch.

Many Congratulations to all Winners!

Before the award ceremony the audience could lean back and relax. On stage the heart of a quantum computer was presented - an artists' interpretation of an ion trap: Tiny hollow glass spheres floated in space, caught in strange paths by an electric field.The experiment is the result of an artists-in-residence project. Robert Löw from the Physics Institute, who made the ions dance live on stage, designed it together with the artists Evelina Domnitch and Dimitrij Gelfand.
