Yale Professors, Lecturers and distinguished speak on physics, quantum mechanics and mysteries of the universe.
Clarifying the Behavior of Neutrinos
Bonnie T. Fleming, Assistant Professor of Physics at Yale, speaks on the recent MiniBooNE findings about the nature of neutrinos.
Engineering the World's First Solid-State Quantum Information Processor
Scientists have long dreamed of building a quantum computer capable of processing enormous amounts of data and solving complex problems at ultra-high speeds. Now a team of Yale engineers has taken a major step forward by building the world's first solid-state, two-qubit quantum processor capable of running simple algorithms. Steven Girvin, Yale's Eugene Higgins Professor of Physics and Applied Physics, explains the design, what the processor is capable of doing, and the promise that quantum computing holds for the future.
Exploring the Force of Light
Jack Harris, assistant professor of physics and applied physics, and one of Discover magazine's "20 Under 40" for 2008, discusses his experiments to measure the force of light.
More Breakthrough Progress on Quantum Computing At Yale
Robert J. Schoelkopf, professor of applied physics, and Steven Girvin, Eugene Higgins Professor of Physics at Yale discuss their breakthrough results in quantum computing research.
The Mysteries of Dark Energy
Professor Urry, Chair of Physics and the Israel Munson Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Yale, discusses the surprise discovery of dark energy, how we're trying to uncover what it is, and what it ultimately means for the fate of the universe.
The Large Hadron Collider: Revealing Secrets of the Universe
Keith Baker, professor of physics, talks about the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider, the world's largest and highest-energy particle accelerator, near Geneva, Switzerland. The ATLAS experiment will look for exotic forms of matter, including dark matter, that have never before been detected.
