The Titanium Physicists Podcast

A touch of Glass!

Dr. Jane Cook and Dr. Jessica Rimsza are here to talk with Bobak Ferdowsi about glass. We talk about what glass is, and how it forms, and what makes it glassy, and where to find it, and so many more things!

Dr. Briony Horgan and Dr. Meg Rosenburg are here to explain that the moon is actually shrinking. It's getting smaller. And we know that it is because we have been studying it.

Today's guest is Eric Molinsky, host of the "Imaginary Worlds" podcast.

I'm gonna give it to you straight: we make beams of neutrinos. Neutrinos are particles that barely touch anything as they pass through everything.

 

Ken Clark and Tia Michelli are back and this episode is awesome. 
neutrino beams: why would we make them? how do we make them?

 

our guest is the host of the FOO SHOW: Will Smith!

Episode 70: Muon, science cat, muon

Muons are very small fundamental particles that are much heavier than they should be. 

they fall apart pretty quickly, but they rain down on us. It's magical.

Today's physicists are Ryan Martin, the particle physicist; and Diana Cowern, host of the "Physics Girl" youtube channel.

 

Our Guest this time is Sarah Gailey, the author!

A phonon.. that's not a spelling mistake... is a quantum of vibration.

it's a particle... that lives as a vibration in a crystal. 

and it's bananas!!!

Doctors Fiona Burnell and Darren Peets have joined me to try to explain this all to Megan and Anthony Leon.

Episode 65: New Ways of Looking

How does a camera work?

no, a digital camera, I mean. 

yeah... yeah.. optics. I know all about lenses.
how does the plate at the back.. the one the photons hit..
how does it turn photons into electronic signals that turn into digital information?
we're talking: CCDs,CMOS cameras, MKIDs, and superconducting bolometers!

Dr. Danica Marsden and Dr. Suresh Sivanandam are here, and our guest today is award winning author Elizabeth Bear!
