Twenty-five animations to understand the main principles and basics of quantum physics, from principles like wave-particle duality to "magnetic frustration" and beyond, like the functioning of tunneling microscopes.
- 7 videos in 2012 on the basics of quantum physics,
- 6 videos in 2014 on quantum research,
- 6 videos in 2016 on microscopy,
- 6 videos in 2021 on magnetism.
This project was launched by Julien Bobroff, physicist and science popularizer specializing in superconductivity, magnetism, quantum physics, and condensed matter physics.
He is the founder, along with Frédéric Bouquet, of the research group "Physics Differently" at the Solid State Physics Laboratory of the Paris-Saclay University and CNRS, which aims to work on new ways of presenting physics and research to the public.
These videos are all accessible via YouTube on the 'Physics Differently' channel and are regularly used as teaching aids in high school and university courses.
They also illustrate numerous Wikipedia articles, in both French and English, including the Wikipedia page on Bose-Einstein condensates.
The music is specially created for each video by Pierre Lemerle, also known as Lao Experiment.
This project is financed by CNRS, Labex Palm, the Triangle of Physics, the French Physical Society, the University of Paris-Sud, Sciences à l'école, and ICAM.
