Quantum simulation, water at the nanoscale and physics start-ups

28 Jun 2018 Hamish Johnston

What do a toaster and a quantum simulator have in common? Lincoln Carr of the Colorado School of Mines explains in this episode of Physics World Weekly. Carr, who has worked as a professional actor, also explains why scientists should have a good grounding in the humanities.

Also in for a chat this week is Physics World’s nanotechnology expert Anna Demming, who talks about an exciting new measurement that confirms yet another amazing property of water.

Next up is our industry guru Margaret Harris, who has interviewed many physicists who have become successful entrepreneurs. She shares her insights into what it takes to take a great idea and make it into a viable business.
