To mark AI in Medical Physics Week, in this episode of the Physics World Weekly podcast we take a look at some of the many applications of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning in medical physics and healthcare. First up, we talk to Rishab Jain, a high school student named as America’s Top Young Scientist when he was just 13, and one of…
 
In this episode of the Physics World Weekly podcast the physicist and entrepreneur Daniel Shaddock explains how building gravitational-wave detectors inspired him to co-found a company that takes a novel approach to creating test and measurement equipment. Shaddock is CEO of Liquid Instruments, and he explains how the firm uses field programmable g…
 
If we want more people to become interested in physics, sending out the wrong signals about the discipline on social media is the surest way to fail. In this episode of the Physics World Weekly podcast, Georgina Phillips of the Institute of Physics (IOP) explains the importance of social media in reaching groups of people who are under-represented …
 
In this episode of the Physics World Weekly podcast, Jenni Strabley and Simon McAdams of Quantinuum explain how quantum computers could be used to simulate industrially relevant quantum systems such as the large molecules used in pharmaceuticals and the materials used in hydrogen fuel cells. Quantinuum offers quantum computing hardware and software…
 
From windows and bottles, to optical fibres and solar cells, glass is an incredibly versatile material that underpins many technologies. In the June episode of the Physics World Stories podcast, Andrew Glester explores a lesser known application of glass – bioglass in healthcare. First you will hear from Julian Jones at Imperial College London, who…
 
In this episode of the Physics World Weekly podcast we look at some of the big questions in physics from biological and philosophical points of view. Katie Robertson is a philosopher of science at the UK’s University of Birmingham and she explains why philosophers are interested in physics and how they approach some of the big questions in the fiel…
 
In this episode of the Physics World Weekly podcast, we meet Shep Doeleman, who is the founding director of the Event Horizon Telescope. He explains how he and his colleagues obtained that iconic image of the “shadow” of the supermassive at the centre of the Milky Way. Based in the US at the Harvard & Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, Doeleman e…
 
In this episode of the Physics World Weekly podcast I report from Edinburgh, where I attended a meeting for student members of the Scottish Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs) in Condensed Matter Physics and Quantum Materials. While in the Scottish capital I discovered how CDTs are helping students make the most out of their PhDs and I also heard …
 
In this episode of the Physics World Weekly podcast the Ukrainian glass artist and architect Oksana Kondratyeva talks about the long tradition of stained glass making in Ukraine and how the country’s artistic and historical heritage is threatened by the Russian invasion. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-3759129-1'); });…
 
Science benefits enormously from supercomputing, which enables researchers to process vast amounts of data and conduct complex simulations. But these machines can be notorious energy guzzlers, with the largest supercomputers consuming as much power as a small city. In this episode of the Physics World Stories podcast, scientists discuss how individ…
 
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-3759129-1'); }); In this episode of the Physics World Weekly podcast, Victoria Robinson and Stuart Black at the University of Reading explain how gamma-ray spectrometers have been used for the first time to locate ancient underground structures. The technique is normally used to identify…
 
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-3759129-1'); }); In this episode of the Physics World Weekly podcast, the space physicist Xiaojia Zhang explains how whistler waves in Earth’s radiation belts are accelerating high-energy electrons towards the North and South poles. As well as causing spectacular aurorae, these energetic…
 
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-3759129-1'); }); In this episode of the Physics World Weekly podcast, four physicists at the University of Birmingham explain how they used two clouds of ultracold atoms as a portable gravity sensor. Their device was able to locate a small tunnel on the university campus and can be used …
 
This episode of the Physics World Weekly podcast features an interview with the physicist Maria Schuld, who is a senior researcher and software developer at Xanadu – a Toronto-based quantum technology company. She talks about the challenges and rewards of implementing machine-learning systems on quantum computers. Also on hand is the author Kit Cha…
 
One of longest-running physics jokes is that, despite numerous promising breakthroughs, practical nuclear fusion will forever be 30 years away. Earlier this year, there was an exciting result in the UK that suggests that – sooner or later – fusion scientists will have the last laugh. The Joint European Torus (JET) nuclear-fusion experiment based in…
 
In this episode of the Physics World Weekly podcast Bruce Bauer, CEO of TAE Life Sciences, explains how boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) can destroy tumour cells without exposing surrounding healthy tissues to damaging levels of radiation. He also chats about how the company is developing technology that will make BNCT more accessible to cancer…
 
In this episode of the Physics World Weekly podcast, we talk about the pros and cons of injecting large amounts of aerosols into the atmosphere to offset global warming.
