In June 2008, for the first time in the southern Philippines the biggest group of more than a dozen and a half graduate students studying quantum mechanics was ever assembled. Never mind that the Philippines was discovered by Magellan in the year 1521. Anyway, quantum mechanics was only formulated in 1926; relatively quite recent.
Quantum science in the Philippines is a kind of commercial venture of consumer items. But here in this site, we will try to convey our understanding and appreciation (and maybe frustrations!) of the world of quantum physics. We want to engage in this lively and engaging conversation because we can trace its roots back to more than 2000 years ago. Then as now people were concerned about the fundamental nature of matter or how the physical world came to be and where it is going.
Being here in the southern Philippines circa 2008 affords a unique opportunity in our physics and other studies in many ways that were not given to our predecessors!
