Research in physics spans a wide range of topics from very tiny constituents of the universe like atoms, to big complex structures like galaxies. Each field of research has its own concepts, tools, and methods. 
We will apply our knowledge from classrooms and textbooks to read “news and views” on highlighted research projects at the cutting edge of research. We will choose an article to discuss at each meeting,  from an easily accessible source, keeping in mind the diversity of theoretical, experimental and numerical work  that is a part of physics research work nowadays. In discussing these articles, we will try to discuss the big picture, rather than technical details. The format will be very informal and open-ended discussions are welcome!

We hope these meetings will help all of us to broaden our view of physics, to find out what we are interested in and motivate us to do some research ourselves! All students at Fysikum are welcome to these afternoon meetings to discuss cutting edge physics.

We will organise the meetings every second week. Once per month the meeting will be longer and also contain  invited talks, meetings with Fysikum's alumni or useful information such as how to study abroad, your degree project, or your study environment. You are also very welcome to make suggestions about topics you would like us to cover

 

A description of every event will be available in the calendar: www.fysik.su.se/events.

Invitations will also be sent out by email.
