If you are aware of an interesting new academic paper (that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal or has appeared on the arXiv), a conference talk (at an official professional scientific meeting), an external blog post (by a professional scientist) or a news item (in the mainstream news media), which you think might make an interesting topic for an FQXi blog post, then please contact us at forums@fqxi.org with a link to the original source and a sentence about why you think that the work is worthy of discussion. Please note that we receive many such suggestions and while we endeavour to respond to them, we may not be able to reply to all suggestions.

Please also note that we do not accept unsolicited posts and we cannot review, or open new threads for, unsolicited articles or papers. Requests to review or post such materials will not be answered. If you have your own novel physics theory or model, which you would like to post for further discussion among then FQXi community, then please add them directly to the "Alternative Models of Reality" thread, or to the "Alternative Models of Cosmology" thread. Thank you.

Have you ever wanted to visit a quantum physics lab? Given many of us are in various stages of lockdown, I can’t offer you an actual trip, but here’s the next best thing: a cool tour of Lund University’s Nano Lab, in Sweden, where FQXi member Ville Maisi is manipulating ‘quantum dots’—semi-conducting nanoparticles—to better understand how the laws of thermodynamics need to be modified in tiny devices.

Free Podcast

'Quantum dots' can teach us about thermodynamics in the nanorealm.

Reporter Colin Stuart has been chatting to Maisi and his colleagues Peter Samuelsson, Klaus Ensslin and Chris Jarzynski. You can read about their work in his article, and hear more about their goals on a special edition of the podcast.

But I wanted to share a 3D virtual version of the team’s cleanroom at Lund, letting you walk around the lab and see what kind of tools they use to manipulate the quantum dots.
