Exploring the limits of quantum entanglement and mapping the afterglow of the big bang: Prof. Jason Gallicchio has several projects that explore the early universe and the apparent non-local nature of quantum mechanics and applies the tools of cosmology and astronomy to study the fundamentals of quantum mechanics.
Exploring quantum entanglement involves building sources of entangled photons in the optics lab along with transmitting and recording individual photons through telescopes. Calvin Leung ’17 won HMC's 4th Apker Award in 2017 for his thesis on this topic. He also spent a year at the South Pole working on the South Pole Telescope. Prof. Gallicchio’s students have been analyzing this data and making maps of the cosmic microwave background and astronomical sources.
