Samuel Nerenberg on Bose Einstein Condensates and Creativity in the Sciences

Samuel Nerenberg, a doctoral student at the College of Optical Sciences at the University of Arizona, sits down to talk about his work on Bose-Einstein Condensates as well as other quantum optic phenomenon. Samuel discusses what defines a BEC, the difficulties involved with creating such a state of matter, and what his group is studying in their behavior. Additionally, we discuss the idea of creativity in fields traditionally considered bereft of human expression, namely mathematics and physics. Tune in for a great discussion and we look forward to hearing your feedback as always!
