Physics in Canada Releases Theme Issue on Perimeter Institute

The April-June 2010 edition of the Canadian Association of Physicists’ quarterly publication highlights some of the exciting science being done at PI.

Physics in Canada has released a theme issue on the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics (PI) for their April-June 2010 edition.

Physics in Canada is a quarterly publication produced by the Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP), and PI’s Communications department worked with CAP to produce an engaging issue that provides a glimpse of some of the exciting science being done at PI. It features articles from across the spectrum of the Institute’s science and researchers, including PI Faculty, Associate Faculty, postdoctoral researchers, and Distinguished Research Chair Bill Unruh.

The entire issue is available online at http://www.cap.ca/en/publications/physics-canada-pic/issue/66/2.
