The OIST science challenge was held again this year and again members of the Shannon unit participated. Seen here are PhD students Kimberly Remund and Andreas Thomasen demonstrating superconductivity and the Meissner effect using magnetic levitation.
2017 Nov 9 OIST Science Festival
The OIST Science Festival (previously known as OIST “Open Campus”) took also place this year and surprised with a record attendance of more than 5,300 people! Kimberly Remund, Andreas Thomasen and Rico Pohle - all PhD students in the TQM unit - worked hand-in-hand with Maki Maeda (Light-Matter Interactions unit), Jason Ball (Quantum Dynamics unit), Matthew Edmonds (Quantum Systems unit) and Bidesh Chatterjee (Membrane Cooperativity unit) in order to demonstrate exciting low-temperature quantum phenomena to the local Okinawan Community. Christina Lee, also a PhD student in the TQM, introduced geology and explained various minerals from all around the world to children and their family.
