Alessio Avella received his Ph.D. in physics from the University of Turin, Italy, in 2014 and is now a permanent researcher in the Quantum Metrology and Nano-Technologies division at the National Institute of Metrological Research (INRIM) in Italy. He works in the field of experimental quantum optics and his scientific interests range from quantum technologies to the foundations of quantum mechanics. In particular, he contributed to the realization of innovative measurement protocols in quantum mechanics and to the development of new techniques for quantum imaging and quantum sensing.


Quantum Mechanics Must Be Complex

Two independent studies demonstrate that a formulation of quantum mechanics involving complex rather than real numbers is necessary to reproduce experimental results. Read More »
