The Mysteries of Quantum Collective Behaviour 

Dr Anna Posazhennikova (RHUL) – The Mysteries of Quantum Collective Behaviour 

When a piece of Aluminium is cooled to -272 degrees Celsius, an electrical current can flow through it without any resistance. This remarkable phenomenon is called superconductivity and is one of the most striking examples of quantum collective behaviour.
Listen to Dr Anna Posazhennikova as she explains this, as well as other intriguing examples of quantum collective behaviours, and the crucial role they play in modern physics.
