QuantIC “Making the Invisible Visible” 3D Augmented Reality app

Quantum Physics is often thought of as something that belongs to the realm of science fiction and yet, it has given us technology like lasers and semiconductors which power our modern-day electronics. We realise it can be a challenging subject and that’s why we’ve created some tools and compiled some online resources to share our knowledge in understanding this branch of physics better.
