Superheroes Superconductors & Quantum electronics: Pub Physics

Local researchers wowing us with amazing astronomy, quantum and all kinds of other physics !

—Andres Rosario (Uni of Queensland) will show off superconductors in action – he’s working on quantum computing use superconducting qubits.
—Carolyn Brown (Uni of Southern Queensland) believes in superheroes, so she’s going to prove the feats they perform are physically possible… or not.
—This slot vacant for YOU or a colleague. Email philuponscience@gmail.com to get involved, discuss a topic, or workshop an idea.
—Samuel Hinton (Uni of Queensland) has had enough of long words. He’ll explain black holes using only the 500 most common words in the English language.
—Schrodinger’s cat’s been in a box for nearly 100 years. Phil Dooley (Phil Up On Science) is going to let him out
—Matt Davis (Uni of Queensland) has a magnetic personality. Or it could just be the physics experiments he likes to perform
—Because of the Uncertainty Principle, quantum physicist from Uni of Queensland Till Weinhold’s talk is a mystery…

Physicists, come to the pub! Yes, Physics in the Pub is back in 2018, so slick your hair, dust off your best frock and wow the real world with some phabulous physics.

The Call for Presenters is now open – you have eight minutes to have some fun, a quiz, a poem or a new twist on the standard physics talk. Anything goes, last year we had reggae, stand up and – as MC I’ll warm the crowd up – with a beer in their hand they’ll be relaxed and ready to be entertained.

Contact Dr Phil now on philuponscience@gmail.com or on 0414945577 to get involved. Happy to discuss ideas if you are not sure.

Sponsored by AIP, FLEET Centre of Excellence, UQ Physics and possibly another mystery Physics Centre of Excellence ☺
