Event details

Part of Interdisciplinary Research Week 2014

Science imagines what might be there and then proves it exists. Poetry uses imagination to describe those things imagined first and existing second. What happens when poets and scientists meet? Come and see the results of these volatile interactions as literary skills meet optical power transmission fibres, 3D printed Replicas, the limits of nanofabrication, Lake Chilwa in Malawi, dark energy, ballroom dancing, childbirth, shell-bearing amoeboeid protists, photo-based memory aids, photonic  bandgap fibres, the Sumatran subduction zone accretionary prism, a matter-wave interferometer,  how to cool nanoparticles, immunodominance  and computational prediction of crystals.

Wine and nibbles available from 16:30pm

All welcome.
