The quantum science where Aotearoa is lightyears ahead

From Nights, 9:30 pm on 15 April 2024

Over the past century, Aotearoa New Zealand has played an unusually pivotal role in humanity's understanding of quantum optics, the study of how light and matter interact.

Dr Jacob Ngaha, a postdoctoral fellow at the Dodd Walls Centre for Photonic and Quantum Technologies, is part of the new generation of quantum physicists leaving their mark on the field.

He joins Emile Donovan.
