  • Observation of quantum many-body effects due to zero point fluctuations in superconducting circuits
    Seminar:  Colloquium QUEST Center event:  Speaker:  Nicolas Roch Date :  18/05/2020 – 10:30 – 12:30 Place:  Zoom Abstract:  Note: The colloquium will take place via ZOOM:  https://zoom.us/j/4459928099 Meeting ID: 445 992 8099   Electromagnetic fields possess zero point fluctuations which lead to observable effects such as the Lamb shift and the Casimir effect. In the traditional quantum optics domain, these corrections remain perturbative due to the s …
