»Testing Foundations of Quantum Mechanics at Different Energy Scales«, a workshop in honour of Prof. Reinhold A. Bertlmann, was held at the Seminar-Hotel Schneeberghof in Puchberg am Schneeberg during the weekend from June 25 to 27, 2010.
In 1935 Albert Einstein, Boris Podolsky and Nathan Rosen argued that the quantum theory cannot be complete because – to say it in Einstein’s own words – »there is no spooky interaction at distances«. In 1964 John S. Bell found an inequality to test their arguments. At this time, Reinhold A. Bertlmann was a student of John S. Bell with a strange habit: If one knew the colour of one of his socks, there was a 100% certainty that the other sock did not have the same color. This inspired Bell to a memorable drawing which in turn became the starting point of Bertelmann’s career as a physicist.
The workshop honoured Bertlmann’s scientific contributions and brought together theoretical and experimental physicists from the interdisciplinary field of quantum physics and particle physics with the aim to find proposals for new experiments in near future.
