Quantum technologies will be of great importance in the near future incomputing and cryptography techniques and information handling. This makes it interesting for the general population to acquire a minimum familiarity with its most fascinating aspects. All the material in this workshop has been made in open code by university students of the Faculty of Physics of the University of Barcelona.

The workshop consists of computer simulations of several experiments in which the quantum properties of matter are revealed. For example, the simulation of the movement of a set of ultra-cold atoms trapped in a potential well (analogous with the movement of a pendulum), the simulation of the movement of a soliton of anatomic gas at 0 K, and the simulation of a quantum Newton pendulum.

Science Fest

The event consists of 190 activities on science, technology, knowledge and culture, distributed in 26 spaces, with the goal to bring the research done in Barcelona and its area of influence closer to citizens.

The Science Festival brings a weekend full of free and engaging activities, designed for audiences of all ages. Participants will have the opportunity to approach different scientific fields in very different formats, ranging from workshops to debates, shows or microchats. The Festival will be open to the public on Saturday, 26 October 2019, from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm, and on Sunday, 27 October 2019, from 11:00 am to 6:30 pm.
 
This year, some of the proposals aim to make scientific research topics accessible to everyone within the framework of celebrating three milestones that transformed society: Leonardo da Vinci, 500 years after his death, 150 years since Dmitri Mendeleiev published the periodic table of chemical elements and 50 years since humankind's arrival on the Moon.
