Speaker: Prof. Philip Moriarty, University of Nottingham

There are deep and fundamental links between quantum physics and heavy metal. Or at least there are according to Professor Philip Moriarty.

Far from being music for Neanderthals, as it’s too often construed, metal can be harmonically and rhythmically complex. That complexity is the source of many connections to the quantum world.

Come along to SciBar on June 24 to hear how chugging guitars are an example of the Heisenberg uncertainty principle in action, how drum beats relate to electron confinement in nanospace, and how squealing solos are related to atomic structure.

Come and meet a top scientist in one of your local real ale pubs!
