09 Dec 2021 Hamish Johnston

This episode of the Physics World Weekly podcast features a lively discussion about some of the best physics done this year as we talk about our Top 10 Breakthroughs of 2021. Our choices run the gamut from particle physics to neural engineering, with a good helping of quantum mechanics, fusion and astrophysics as well.

The Top 10 serves as the shortlist for the Physics World Breakthrough of the Year award, which will be announced on 14 December. Links to all the nominees, more about their research and the criteria for the award can be found here.
