Professor Sir Tom Kibble is one of the world’s most respected particle physicists, and narrowly missed out on a Nobel Prize. After writing ‘Monopoles on Strings’ for JPhysG’s 40th anniversary collection, we decided to ask him a few questions.
Professor Dr Hartmut Löwen of the Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf talks here about his experiences in soft condensed matter and what keeps him motivated in this fast paced field of physics.
We talk to Professor Michael Schulz. In this interview he answers our questions about his research, what problems science needs to solve, and his advice for young scientists.
Alongside a knighthood from the Queen in 2014, Sir Tejinder has won a raft of awards. We find out more about the man behind the mind, the importance of the Large Hadron Collider and what inspired him to become the successful physicist he is today.
We talk to Professor Paul Brumer about his research, his career, and where he sees the field of coherent control going in the future.
