ML4Q Stories

Scientists have a lot to share. Many exciting stories to tell. On being a physicist. How do they perceive their world. Why are they doing what they are doing. Moments of satisfaction. Fulfillment. Frustration. Challenges. And of course, many science-related discussions. Thoughts on methodology. Theoretical debates. Opinions on where quantum science is heading.

Physics in the time of COVID-19

It was inevitable... ... the scent of acetone always reminded Dr. Christian Dickel of the frustrations of nanofabrication. How does Covid-19 and the measures to mitigate the pandemic influence the life of physicists? Let’s start from what “normal” people think...

Fabrication is the first step in many projects, whether you do it yourself or have a fabrication team supporting you. The extent of realization of proposals invariably sees a bottleneck in experimental realization, often the limitation of fabrication capability....

We are trying to start a blog for this ML4Q Cluster and many people I tried to convince to write something asked me why I want to do this. Aren’t we all already overworked with our day job? Why should we blog about it on top of that? Or why not make podcasts or videos...
