Dancing Fire: Illuminating the Hidden Quantum World of Nanotechnology

Dancing Fire: Illuminating the Hidden Quantum World of Nanotechnology by Christian Binek

From Feynman’s vision of nanotechnology to the tools that make nanostructures visible we will look at capabilities in nanoscience. The concept of matter waves is central to modern quantum mechanics.  We will visualize it through the analogy of a standing acoustic wave demonstrated by flames dancing to the sweet sound of an electric guitar.
