Light-matter interaction – arriving early and late at the same time – Martin Hayhurst Appel and Beatrice Ellerhoff Many Body Physics

Light-matter interaction plays a part in many areas of physics from macroscopic stars to the microscopic quantum world. This episode is devoted to the fascinating interactions that occur when a few particles of light (photons) couple to tiny fragments of matter (quantum dots). Martin Hayhurst Appel, PhD candidate in Copenhagen, explores how the strange light-matter interaction can be used to transport quantum information.  Will such photonic quantum devices help build better quantum  computers and robust quantum networks? And what does it mean when it  comes down to whether light is too early or too late? Though, sometimes light just hits the lens of Martin's camera. As a young scientist, he shares with us what it means to him to get creative and put work aside while making music and taking pictures. He talks with Beatrice Ellerhoff about his passion for statistics and why collaborations and occasional coffee breaks remain invaluable to him.
