Physics at the Library: The 2018 Nobel Prize in Physics

Mats Larsson from the Nobel Committee for Physics will describe the 2018 physics Nobel prize:  Tools made of light.

The inventions being honoured this year have revolutionised laser physics. Extremely small objects and incredibly rapid processes are now being seen in a new light. Advanced precision instruments are opening up unexplored areas of research and a multitude of industrial and medical applications.

 

The event will be streamed live

 


Physics at the Library = Sausages, physics and potato salad

Once a month, the Science Library and Department of Physics invite to a popular scientific lecture in the Science Library. Physics need to reach the people, and what is more "for the people" than sausages and potato salad? 

"Pølser, fysikk og potetsalat" ("Sausages, physics and potato salad") is the title of a book by Otto Øgrim and Helmut Ormestad. The two physicists were pioneers in dissemination of physics on radio and TV. In our version of sausages, physics and potato salad we want you to hear lectures you haven't heard before, from research fellows fresh in the world of research or professors bringing new perspectives.
