Festival of the Mind 2016

Our group participated in two projects within the Festival, which was exhibited for the whole week at The Millennium Gallery.

Our exhibits

An artistic journey into the physics of light

An Artistic Journey into the Physics of Light is an art exhibit inspired by the research activity of the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Sheffield. The exhibit aims to show how art and scientific research are complementary ways to interpret the same reality.

The hidden life of light

We exhibited our animations about light and how we use it to build quantum devices, including a quantum computer!

We premiered our animation "Making Quantum Light" about the ultra-thin materials (just one-atom thick!) and the incredible ways they can be used.
