Event details

Did you know that modern electronics are made of tiny components just a few tens of nanometers in size? (One nanometer is just one billionth of a meter!) All electronics produce heat; as our world becomes ever fuller with technology, it’s therefore becoming increasingly important to understand the world of tiny temperatures. Come along and explore how we look at heat on such a small scale and discover why it’s so important.

Meet the researcher: James Lees, Department of Physics, University of York
