Ian Bryce:

The Quantum World Made Visible
Quantum mechanics is a foundation of our universe, and yet to study it is to threaten one’s grounding in reality. This practical demonstration makes many aspects readily apparent. We view a range of light sources through diffraction gratings, which reveals the details of the spectra. The accompanying slide show explains the quantum effects in everyday terms.

The talk will include an attempt to measure the elusive Planck’s Constant. And culminate in a challenge: Can anyone identify a non-quantum light source, ie one explained entirely by classical physics?
Ian Bryce qualified in physics and engineering. He then worked and lectured in aerospace engineering. Revisiting fundamental physics has provided new insights. He is Chief Investigator for Australian Skeptics.

Pre-reading is not essential, but there is one book which stands out in its clarity: The Quantum Universe: Everything that Can Happen, Does Happen, by Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw.
