Alexander Lvovsky, professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, says the development of quantum technologies makes it possible to create increasingly complex quantum states, and Shrödinger’s thought experiment no longer seems too far out of reach. Lvovsky and Anastasia Pushkina, shown here in Lvovsky's UCalgary lab, were part of a Canadian-Russian team of quantum physicists who have found a way to "breed" Shrödinger’s cats that grow ever larger and more energetic.
