Role of Cortical Noise in Vision

by Donald Glaser
Role of Cortical Noise in Vision
for 18-22 and upwards,
Lectures | 18-22 and upwards | 6 years ago | 640 views
Rating:

Our brains are always generating electrical signals, even if we close our eyes, plug our ears, and lie in a warm bath. These signals are called cortical noise because they don't correlate with any sensation or thought of which we are aware. I will ....

The Individuality of Light Quanta

by Roy Glauber
The Individuality of Light Quanta
for 18-22 and upwards,
Lectures | 18-22 and upwards | 6 years ago | 938 views
Rating:

Light quanta are the fundamental units of radiant energy. When propagating freely they travel at the fastest attainable speed and live forever. These properties recommend them as the ideal messengers for communication of all sorts. Ordinary light ....

Which Way For Physics?

by Brian Josephson
Which Way For Physics?
for 18-22 and upwards,
Lectures | 18-22 and upwards | 6 years ago | 708 views
Rating:

This talk describes a new approach to the problem of characterising physical reality, one with the potential to fill in gaps in the conventional understanding of nature. It is based on a different view from the usual one of structure at the finest l....

What Future for Energy and Climate?

by Jack Steinberger
What Future for Energy and Climate?
for 18-22 and upwards,
Lectures | 18-22 and upwards | 6 years ago | 684 views
Rating:

We are using the planet's fossil fuel resources in a time which is very short compared to that of human evolution. In the same process we are changing the planet's climate and sea level, threatening the future of large segments of the global populat....

The Development of Particle Physics

by Martinus Veltman
The Development of Particle Physics
for 18-22 and upwards,
Lectures | 18-22 and upwards | 6 years ago | 943 views
Rating:

Particle physics mainly developed after World War II. It has its roots in the first half of the previous century, when it became clear that all matter is made up from atoms, and the atoms in turn were found to contain a nucleus surrounded by electro....

Discovery of Superconducting Tunneling

by Ivar Giaver
Discovery of Superconducting Tunneling
for 18-22 and upwards,
Lectures | 18-22 and upwards | 6 years ago | 1150 views
Rating:

I had the great fortune to receive a Nobel Prize in Physics for using electron tunneling to measure the energy gap in superconductors. In this talk I will recollect some of the events that led to this discovery and hopefully I will be able to convey....

Cold Atomic Gases: the Intersection of Condensed Matter and Atomic Physics
for 18-22 and upwards,
Lectures | 18-22 and upwards | 6 years ago | 1042 views
Rating:

During the past decade laser cooling and evaporative cooling of atoms have produced quantum degenerate gases both of bosons (Bose-Einstein condensates) and of fermions (gases with temperatures below the Fermi temperature). Such gases can provide ana....

From Spinwaves to Giant Magnetoresistance (GMR) and Beyond
for 18-22 and upwards,
Lectures | 18-22 and upwards | 6 years ago | 876 views
Rating:

Standing spinwaves and surface waves in layered magnetic structures can be used for the detection and quantitative evaluation of interlayer exchange coupling (IEC). Using this method antiferromagnetic IEC has been found in Fe/Cr/Fe layered structure....
