They remember the visit to Cuba of the 2022 Nobel Prize in Physics

Havana, Oct 17 (ACN) Institute of Cybernetics, Mathematics and Physics (ICIMAF) evoked the visit made in January 2018 by the Austrian physicist Anton Zeilingerone of the 2022 Nobel laureates who then held extremely interesting exchanges with his Cuban colleagues.

Zeilingir was in Havana four years ago at the request of the Cuban Academy of Sciences and his attention was in charge of the Office of Nuclear Affairs, recalled Doctor of Science Aurora Pérez Martínez, Senior Researcher of the Department of Theoretical Physics of the aforementioned institution. .

He had an extensive conversation with Hugo Celso Pérez Rojas. Academic, Doctor of Physical Sciences – Mathematics and Full Professor, the specialist expanded his information to the Cuban News Agency about the stay of the famous scientist in Havana.

In addition, he added, he signed a book and the visitors’ mural, we had the honor of him giving a conference at the ICIMAF Department of Theoretical Physics, entitled Quantum Entangelment (Quantum Entanglement) and he met with our scientists to assess possible collaborations with the institution that directs.

The next day, he gave a lecture at a Colloquium in Room 250 of the Varona Building, of the University of Havana.

He believed that the Nobel Prize was awarded for his contribution to quantum mechanics and for the impact that these discoveries will have on his computing, networks and the development of encryption that will allow greater robustness in the security of communications.

These investigations also have a profound relevance in the understanding of Quantum Mechanics and its philosophical implications, Pérez Martínez pointed out.

ICIMAF hosts frequent visits from eminent scientists and one example is that after Zeilingir, in July 2019, Fernando Quevedo Rodríguez, director of the Abdus Salam International Center for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), came to the Cuban capital to evaluate the collaboration and joint projects that collectively supports in Cuba.

The ICTP founded in 1964 Nobel Laureate Abdus Salam, who has contributed substantially to stemming the scientific brain drain from the developing world.

Mohammad Abdus Salam (1926-1996), Pakistani theoretical physicist, received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1979 for his work on the electroweak model, a mathematical and conceptual synthesis of electromagnetism and the weak nuclear force, so far the last step that has been given to reach the unification of all the powers of nature.

The Abdus Salam International Center for Theoretical Physics is a scientific research institute, sponsored by the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, the International Atomic Energy Agency and the Italian government, and its facilities are located very close to the city of Trieste, Italy.

Quevedo Rodríguez was born in Costa Rica in 1956 and later accepted the citizenship of Guatemala, his childhood and adolescence were lived in Honduras, and he obtained his doctorate at the University of Texas, Austin, in 1986, under the supervision of the Nobel Prize in Physics Steven Winbe .
