Event Description

Nearly sixty years ago, renowned physicist Richard Feynman invited scientists to enter the emerging field of atomic-scale physics with the rousing invitation, “There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom.” “Scientists began studying nature at distances corresponding to atomic sizes and smaller years before Feynman’s urging and it is tempting to suppose that nature behaves at those length scales more or less the same as it does at other scales in everyday life,” says Utah State University physicist Charlie Torre.  Is that really the case? “Nothing could be further from the truth,” Torre says. Torre, a professor in USU’s Department of Physics, will explore the amazing atomic scale with the talk “Quantum” at USU’s Science Unwrapped program Friday, April 12.
