Light Phase and Matter
Dr Catherine Low discusses difficulties students have with models and concepts of light and matter. Catherine recently completed her PhD in Theoretical Particle Physics and is currently teaching senior physics in New Zealand. Catherine Bell discusses the importance of phase in understanding the behavior of waves. She is completing a PhD on Phase Microscopy and is currently teaching senior Physics.
Sound and Other Demonstrations
Sandor Kazi presents a range of demonstrations related to waves, including: wave machines, standing waves, Chladni figures, ripple tanks and resonance. Sandor teaches senior Physics. Nick Nicola is the Undergraduate Laboratory Manager, School of Physics, University of Melbourne. His demonstrations focus on upper secondary physics.
Astrophysics-A Tour of the Universe
Astrophysicist Rachel Webster Ė a Professor at Melbourne University Ė reviews key aspects of our current knowledge of the Universe and other topics and concepts that excite students.
Einsteinís Heroes-Newton, Faraday and Maxwell
Dr Robyn Arianrhod, a writer and mathematician at Monash University takes us on a remarkable journey as she traces the connections between the development of electrodynamics by Faraday and Maxwell, and Einsteinís Theory of Special Relativity. Along the way, she looks at the roles both mathematics and experimentation have played in establishing these key areas of modern physics.
