Speaker: Prof David Andrews (UEA)
It is well known that light can generate forces – a principle already used in laser tweezers. This talk shows how photons can drive motion and how, at a deeply fundamental level, quantum fluctuations can also generate exotic nanoscale forces between particles of matter.
The talk starts at 18.30pm, with refreshments available from 18.00pm.
The venue: Lecture Theatre 2 or 3, Foster Building, University of Central Lancashire, Corporation Street, Preston, PR1 2HE
Event Type: Lecture/Talk
Organised by the IOP Lancashire and Cumbria Branch
