Amanda Peet, University of Toronto and Perimeter Institute
Speaker(s): Amanda Peet
Abstract: String Theory LEGOs for Black Holes Four decades ago, Stephen Hawking posed a paradox about black holes and quantum theory that still challenges the imaginations of theoretical physicists today. One of the most promising approaches to resolving the "information paradox" (the notion that nothing, ... read more

Niels Bohr: Life Behind the Physics
Speaker(s): Vilhelm Bohr
Abstract: Niels Bohr was Nobel-winning physicist – a pioneer of quantum theory – but his influence extended far beyond his own research. He was a gifted teacher who established one of the 20th century’s most important centres for physics, and was instrumental in the development of physics worldwide. He ... read more

Neil Turok: The Astonishing Simplicity of Everything
Speaker(s): Neil Turok
Abstract: Fundamental physics has reached a turning point. The most powerful experiments ever devised are revealing the structure of the universe with unprecedented clarity. On the largest scales – the whole visible universe – and the tiniest, we are discovering remarkable simplicity, which our theories d... read more

David Wineland: Keeping Better Time: The Era of Optical Atomic Clocks
Speaker(s): David Wineland
Abstract: Atomic clocks are the most precise timekeepers ever built. If you could keep an advanced atomic clock running long enough, it would neither gain nor lose a single second over the entire lifespan of the universe. With the availability of spectrally pure lasers and the ability to pre... read more

Paul Schaffer: Get a Half-Life: Isotopes as the unlikely Hero of Modern Mediicine
Speaker(s): Paul Schaffer
Abstract: Emerging techniques and technologies, drawn from many fields of science and medicine, are allowing us to peer inside the human body with unprecedented sensitivity and to probe the fundamental processes of life – in real time. TRIUMF’s Life Sciences Division is making such studies possible with i... read more

Victoria Kaspi: The Cosmic Gift of Neutron Stars
Speaker(s): Victoria Kaspi
Abstract: Neutron stars are a celestial gift to scientists. These incredibly dense collapsed stars act as very precise cosmic beacons that help shed light on some of the most challenging problems in modern physics. In her Feb. 3 talk at Perimeter Institute, astrophysicist Victoria Kaspi will explore these ... read more

Katherine Freese: The Dark Side of the Universe
Speaker(s): Katherine Freese
Abstract: The ordinary atoms that make up the known universe, from our bodies and the air we breathe to the planets and stars, constitute only 5 percent of all matter and energy in the cosmos. The remaining 95 percent is a recipe of 25 percent dark matter and 70 percent dark energy, both nonluminous component... read more

Art McDonald: A Deeper Understanding of the Universe from 2 km Underground
Speaker(s): Arthur McDonald
Abstract: By creating an ultra-clean underground location with a highly reduced radioactive background, otherwise impossible measurements can be performed to study fundamental physics, astrophysics and cosmology. The Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) was a 1,000 tonne heavy-water-based neutrino detector crea... read more
