Quantum, on the tips of you fingers

Lights go off. The projector goes on. Shivering atoms appear on paper shapes. They wander on the different surfaces, entangling and splitting, reducing and extending. The physicist guides and measures them with his hands.


Chloé uses this previously unseen concept to tell you all about the major principles of quantum physics and the cutting-edge technologies that use them. Her residence program project, somewhere between a magic trick and a technological achievement.
