Speaker: Professor Andrew Truscott
Affiliation: Australian National University (Canberra)


Correlations have played a large part in the foundation of quantum mechanics. From local, two particle Hanbury Brown Twiss correlations, driving the theory of optical coherence and ultimately the birth of quantum optics to non-local Bell correlations changing our view of reality.

In this general talk I will describe these famous events in the history of quantum mechanics and relate them to results of correlation experiments performed in my group with ultra-cold helium atoms.
