PhysicsReimagined

The Hairy Nobel

In 2016, the Nobel Prize was awarded for « topological phases in matter ». The subject is very difficult to explain, so we tried to make it an animated film! Welcome to a strange world full of quantum physics, electricity, magnetism and even oceanography. This short film also offers another look at science, showing how a simple little curious experience eventually generates a whole field of research. Here you can also download two posters from the same graphic world that tell the topology and how science is done.  You’ll also find lots of pretty pictures on these topics to reuse in your own lessons or conferences. And as a bonus, a short making-of.
