This Blog is written by a Physicist (and general nerd) with the aim of giving similar people interesting things to read. The blog doesn’t have a specific aim or theme, but works on the broad principle that writing something interesting for an intelligent audience is a worthy goal in and of itself. However, due to the expertise areas of the writer you will find me musing more often on issues related to science and games than on other things. The overall idea is that people of a similar level to the writer will find interesting and perhaps relevant articles on a variety of nerdy topics.

Disclaimer: This is not a blog for journalism – expect spelling mistakes, inaccuracies, wrong facts, wikipedia referencing. Hopefully there won’t be any – I try my hardest to make my material accurate and up-to-date. However, I’m not a professional so don’t cry foul if you spot something that could have been a ‘simpole’ mistake.


The author is an MPhys and PhD graduate from the University of Surrey, has worked at STFC’s Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Didcot, Oxfordshire, and is currently a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Surrey. He worked on experimental methods and analysis for a kind of single-photon detector called a Single Photon Avalanche Diode, and now works on making a qubit in Silicon which is gated using light. You can view his PhD Thesis for free here: “Coherent Control of Spin and Orbital Wavepackets of Donors in Silicon using Mid-Infrared and Terhartz Light“.

    Hi Steve, sorry for posting this here; I couldn’t see another way to contact you.

    My name is Mark.
    I’m contacting you because I noticed that you tweeted one of my favorite “9 things I wish people understood about anxiety”.
    That is such a great post.

    I was hearing from my readers that they wanted something more in depth about the topic so I went ahead and created this post: http://wp.me/p6bNAS-K

    It gives practical steps to get over anxieties.

    If you have time I’d love for you to check it out, and if you like it, it would be awesome if you could share it or maybe leave a comment.
