This is my entry into the last Dance Your PhD contest. I did not win, but had a lot of fun putting this together. Here is the summary of the video:
Using the power of Quantum Physics, it is possible to make a ruler that can measure things far more accurately than normally possible. My PhD involved using photons, the smallest particles of light, in order to make such a “quantum ruler”. I was able to get indvidual photons to cooperate with one another, leaving them entangled. These entangled photons have special properties that allow them to be used to accomplish things not ordinarily possible.
Jasper and I are thinking of working on some other dance videos to explain scientific concepts. If you have any physics ideas that you would like explained through dance, let us know in the comments.
