This happens when quantum objects “borrow” energy in order to bypass an obstacle such as a gap in an electrical circuit. It is possible thanks to the uncertainty principle, and enables quantum particles to do things other particles can’t.
We are conducting a survey to gather feedback on this year's Quantum Shorts film festival. We would love to hear from you.
Got some questions about the survey? Here is more information about it.
Who is asking these questions?
We are the organisers of the Quantum Shorts program, based at the Centre for Quantum Technologies (CQT), National University of Singapore (https://quantumlah.org). We created this survey to find out more about our audiences and evaluate aspects of our program.
How will my answers be used?
The survey is an evaluation tool, not part of any research project.
We will use your answers to improve the program in the future, to shape strategies for advertising the program and to understand what the impacts of the program might be.
We will summarise the survey results for the Centre for Quantum Technologies and people interested in its work, for example in internally-produced newsletters or on our website as part of general communications about the Quantum Shorts program. We might also quote some people’s responses to the survey. All responses will be shared anonymously, not attributed to you.
How will my email address be used?
Only write your email address on the form if you are interested in participating in a live discussion with us about the Quantum Shorts program. If you have any concerns, or are not interested in such a discussion, there is no need to write your email address.
If you do write your email address, we will remove it from the form and store it separately before analysing the survey results. That way, your answers will not be associated with any identifying personal details.
We will then use your email address to organise an online discussion, with you and the other interested audience members. We will not sign you up to any email lists or use your email address for any other purpose, unless you ask us to.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any further queries.
