About this Event

As part of Brighton Digital Festival, the city’s hub for emerging technologies, The FuseBox, is setting up camp at 3 Hanningtons Lane for a week of hands-on experiences and talks about new technologies, society and you. Every day there's something different to experience and learn about!

The FuseBox in the Lane: The World Turned Upside Down? Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Computers

Quantum mechanics is based on ideas that would be more at home in science fiction than the university lab. But crazy or not, they are enabling scientists to build the most powerful computers in the world - including one here in Brighton at the University of Sussex.

On Monday 14th October (6pm - 8pm), come and hear from the University’s Sussex Centre for Quantum Technologies about how these new quantum technologies work, what their applications are and how they might impact society going forward.

Plus, throughout the day (11am - 6pm), we will be hosting a fascinating exhibition about all things quantum, including computers, atomic clocks, quantum sensors, quantum imaging devices, and a sub-atomic particle tracking device, as well as a VR experience created at a quantum hack at the FuseBox.

Please note, you only need a ticket for the evening talk (6pm - 8pm). If you are interested in the daytime exhibition, just come to 3 Hanningtons Lane on 14th Oct between 11am and 6pm.

This day of activity is supported by the University of Sussex.
