Programme Title: "SciPOP" Lecture Series - "Seeing" with Particles and Non-Electromagnetic Waves
Programme Description:

For hundreds of years, physicists have been studying the universe and structure of matter using electromagnetic waves. However, it is also possible to probe structure of matter in different length scales using particles and non-electromagnetic waves. The use of matter waves such as electrons and neutrons have brought about breakthroughs in microscopy, allowing us to "see" individual atoms. At the other extreme, the detection of solar and supernova neutrinos have led to the birth of neutrino astronomy. Direct detection of gravitational waves will open up the possibility to study questions about space-time, cosmology and structure in the universe. This lecture covers these topics at an introductory level.
