Theory meets Experiment on Quantum Observables


Friday, March 1, 2024
11:00 - 17:00


The schedule is as follows:

- 11.00 - 12.00 Nikhef Colloquium by Dr James Howarth (Glasgow) on Observation of entanglement in top quark pairs at ATLAS
- 14.00 - 14.10 Short Introduction/overview of terms by Vincent Croft
- 14.10 - 14.45 Theoretical introduction to entanglement, non-locality and Bell-tests by Dr Jordi Tura Brugués (Leiden)
- 15.15 - 15.45 Experimental Higgs Quantum Observables in ATLAS by Dr Peter Kluit
- 16.00 - 16.30 Experimental talk on coherent production of quantum-mechanically entangled B meson pairs by Professor Marcel Merk
- 16.30 discussions and drinks.

The TmE series aims to bring theorists and experimentalists from different experiments together to discuss current topics. The setup is very informal with a lot of room for questions and discussions. This specific event organized with help of Vincent Croft discusses the integration of quantum information observables into the interpretation of measurements at current and future colliders. The goal is to explore the potential of these observables to provide both non-trivial tests of quantum mechanics, but also as a probe for new physics in fundamental interactions. The event will continue from a seminar discussing recent experimental evidence of entanglement in top quark decays with the ATLAS detector and cover theoretical and experimental introductions to specific studies on quantum information at B-factories, and with top quarks, Electroweak and Higgs Bosons, and examinations of loopholes in Bell inequalities.
