What Hedy Lamarr and Abdus Salam have in common and why cuprates are getting stranger

09 Aug 2018 Hamish Johnston

In this episode of Physics World Weekly podcast, Physics World’s Tushna Commissariat and Matin Durrani have a lively discussion about two new physics-related films – biopics of Hedy Lamarr and Abdus Salam. The former was a Hollywood star and the latter a Nobel-prize winning physicist, yet their remarkable lives had striking similarities.

Also, Physics World’s Susan Curtis explains how cuprate superconductors become stranger and stranger the more physicists learn about them.
