DESCRIPTION


In physics, why is it that things can have an electric charge, but not a magnetic charge? Can you get a magnet with only a north or south pole?

Felix Flicker explores the magnetic monopoles theoretically predicted to exist in ‘spin ices’ and how this could lead to fundamental advances in electronics with the possibility of magnetic currents that overcome physical limitations faced by electrical currents today.

Felix Flicker is a theoretical physicist working at Oxford University. He holds the Astor Junior Research Fellowship at New College. His interests lie in the application of geometry and topology to condensed matter systems.

This lecture was filmed in the Ri on 17 February 2020.

He's a scientist, Vern. Someone who studied and understands. Not a self-important YouTuber with only half of an education.

ongoing issue, Sid...no worries.

Hey Aragorn, Topology is something I can get behind...I'll check it out...thnx
