PhD Comics: How To Tie A Quantum Knot

You can't split an electron, right? Wrong. Physicists Gil Refael and Jason Alicea explain the unique properties of electrons constrained to a 2 Dimensional world, and how they can be used to make noise-proof Quantum Computers. Piled Higher and Deeper (PHD Comics) are created by Jorge Cham, one of our outreach partners.

PhD Comics: Doing The Impossible

Physicists Amir Safavi-Naeini and Oskar Painter describe how they were able to measure quantum motions of 1 femtometer (0.000000000000001 meters) in a micro-scale object. Piled Higher and Deeper (PHD Comics) are created by Jorge Cham, one of our outreach partners.
