In physics, why is it that things can have an electric charge, but not a magnetic charge? Can you get a magnet with only a north or south pole? This talk explores the magnetic monopoles theoretically predicted to exist in ‘spin ice’. Join Felix Flicker as he discusses how these magnetic currents that overcome physical limitations faced by electrical currents today.

Felix Flicker is a theoretical physicist working at Oxford University. He holds the Astor Junior Research Fellowship at New College. His interests lie in the application of geometry and topology to condensed matter systems.

This event will be filmed and on the Ri’s YouTube channel within a few months.
