Audience: 
General public (Age 14+)

The IOP and Oxford University are pleased to present Dr Felix Flicker. Felix is the Astor Junior Research Fellow of New College, Oxford. His work in theoretical physics concerns the application of geometry and topology to quantum materials.

Join us on an expedition to find the north pole! The last century saw teams of explorers from around the world brave the ices in attempts to reach the north and south poles. These days we are again working to discover the poles -- but this time, the task is to isolate the individual poles of a magnet.
