Hannover Messe 2018

A successful and exciting week at the Hannover Messe 2018 for IQST PhD students Jennifer Gosner, Matthias Widmann and Matthias Niethammer with their exhibit Quantum Minigolf Game. Thanks a lot for representing the center so outstandingly!

IQST participated in the Hannover Messe 2018, the world’s leading trade fair for industrial technology, that was held from April 23-27, 2018. As a co-exhibitor at the “Baden-Württemberg joint stand“ (hall 2, A18), that was organised by Baden-Württemberg International (bw-i), the competence center of the state for the internationalisation of business, science and research, the Center for IQST presented its cutting-edge research along with the University of Stuttgart.

To demonstrate quantum physical phenomena and a portable quantum device, our IQST PhD students demonstrated exciting interactive experiments at the fair:

 • A mini-golf game based on quantum mechanical effects. Fair visitors thereby experienced a surprising effect: the golf ball can be at many positions at the same time. Many interested  attempted to maximize the balls probability being inside the hole. They all had lots of fun!

 • A prototype of a quantum magnetometer was also be demonstrated on which the visitors were able to directly experience the influence of magnetic fields on spin-based quantum systems.


We enjoyed discussing with the many companies and students that came to the stand. We look forward to future collaboration and seeing you again next year.
