Mesoscopic Physics

Mesoscopic physics is the area of Solid State physics that covers the transition regime between macroscopic objects and the microscopic, atomic world.The main goal of the course is to introduce the physical concepts underlying the phenomena in this field. Study Goals: Reach understanding of electronic properties of meso-size conductors, appreciate/recognize the role of classical and quantum processes, being able to explain electronic transport phenomena using simple physical concepts.Author(s):

Scientific Ethics and the Signs of Voodoo Science

Until recently, the issue of research ethics had not been a subject of explicit discussion within the Physics community. Over the past ten years, however, documented cases of scientific fraud have brought this issue to center stage. We will explore, through case studies, some examples ranging from poor scientific practice to deliberate manipulation and fabrication of data.

The Physics of Startups - Shai Agassi (SAP AG)

Shai Agassi discusses his entrepreneurial journey from the enterprise software industry to his current work in clean energy. In the process, he describes the "physics of startups", drawing parallels between principles of business and the laws of physics. He emphasizes the importance of acting on an idea before it's adopted by the mainstream and navigating the inevitable uncertainties that can result in success or failure.

8.592J Statistical Physics in Biology (MIT)

Statistical Physics in Biology is a survey of problems at the interface of statistical physics and modern biology. Topics include: bioinformatic methods for extracting information content of DNA; gene finding, sequence comparison, and phylogenetic trees; physical interactions responsible for structure of biopolymers; DNA double helix, secondary structure of RNA, and elements of protein folding; considerations of force, motion, and packaging; protein motors, membranes. We also look at collective

Neutron Stars: Lighthouses of the Cosmos

Prof. Kaspi describes the astonishing properties of pulsars, as well as how observations of these amazing objects help to constrain several interesting aspects of physics of extreme environments.
