The 20th Asian Physics Olympiad welcomed at IPAS
IPAS proudly joined the University of Adelaide to host the 20th Asian Physics Olympiad which was held in Adelaide from 5-13 May.
A group comprising 100 of the most outstanding and brightest high school students from 25 countries competing at the 2019 Asian Physics Olympiad were warmly welcomed at IPAS. The group was shown through state-of-the-art fabrication facilities and equipment in The Braggs such as the high tech 3D Metal and Ceramic Printer, The Extrusion Lab, and the Fibre Drawing Tower by IPAS Deputy Director Prof Heike Ebendorff-Heidepriem, Drs Stephen Warren-Smith, Erik Schartner and Georgios Tsiminis. The group was then guided on a visit to the Cryogenic Sapphire Clock (CSO) Lab and had interactive discussions with Dr Ori Henderson-Sapir.
The group also had the unique and immersive experience with IPAS research on display. The demonstrations of Laser Radio, High Temperature Sensor, and Sapphire Clock by Drs Ben Sparkes, Chris Perrella and Stephen Warren-Smith showed the students the world class research at IPAS and the enormous research opportunities at the University of Adelaide. All students were amazed, inspired and appreciated the opportunity to meet and interact with leading researchers at IPAS.
We hope you enjoyed your excursion at IPAS and wish you all the best in your future scientific endeavours!
