(p.565) 10 Conclusion
Exploring the Quantum

Serge Haroche

Jean-Michel Raimond

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents some concluding thoughts from the authors. It evokes future prospects and mentions the challenges ahead. It addresses questions such as: How far will the industry of thought experiments be carried and the quantum classical boundary pushed back? What are the odds to beat decoherence and make quantum information practical? What are the best systems to achieve these goals? Should they be reached from bottom-up, as in atomic physics, or from top-down, as in condensed matter physics?

Keywords:   quantum physics, condensed matter physics, thought experiments, decoherence
