Separating Quantum from Classical

November 19, 2008 - 8:30-8:55am

RLE Conference Center 36-428


I will discuss various possibilities of distinguishing quantum effects from classical behavior. Static properties, in the form of correlations appearing in Bell-inequalities, will be analysed as well as dynamical features.


Dr. Wolf is currently the Ole Rømer Professor at the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen and heads the QIT Group.  He received his Ph.D. in Physics from the Institute for Mathematical Physics, TU Braunschweig.  His major awards include Young Elite Researcher's Award of the Danish Councils for Independent Research (Jan.'08), Ole Rømer Fellowship (Nov. '07) and the QIPC European Quantum Information Young Investigator Award (Oct. '07).
