What does a hairy donut have to do with quantum physics? Can you comb a ball without creating a single vortex? From 12th September 2020, you can try this and much more out with your whole family. The Technische Sammlungen Dresden is launching the "Showcases of Research" („Schaufenster der Forschung“) – a new permanent exhibition in which Dresden's scientific institutions present their research. The Cluster of Excellence ct.qmat – Complexity and Topology in Quantum Matter will be one of the first to do so.


Seven interactive exhibits help visitors to decipher the still mysterious quantum world. In the future, this area of research promises ground-breaking possibilities such as mega-fast quantum chips and gigantic storage capacities. For this exhibition, what is otherwise often hidden in high-performance laboratories has been translated into family-compatible topics.
