EQUS student selected to attend international summit of Nobel Laureates in Germany

After making his way through a rigorous selection process, PhD student Martin Ringbauer has been invited to join the annual gathering of Nobel Laureates at Lindau.

Once a year, Nobel Laureates gather in Lindau, Germany to meet the next generation of young scientists from all over the world. In 2016, the meeting is dedicated to the field of physics.

Martin Ringbauer, a PhD student at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems (EQUS), said, “Being selected for the 66th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting is a unique opportunity and a great honour.”

His research aims to explore the boundaries of quantum mechanics.

Martin has tested information causality as candidate principle for why our world is quantum and closed time-like curves as a phenomenon that might give clues as to where and how quantum mechanics and general relativity clash.

The 66th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting will run from June 26, 2016 to July 1, 2016. The preliminary programme is available online.
