Efficiency

This video uses a comparison between an LED light and filament bulb to introduce efficiency (η). The equation, %efficiency (η) = (useful energy out/total energy in) x100 is explained and then linked to rate of energy transfer (P=E/t).

Quantum Tech Teacher guide GPS and Trilateration

Satellite navigation is a key technology for today’s society, allowing for global navigation on land, at sea and in the air. The technology depends upon accurate atomic clocks, which help us pinpoint our position to within a few metres. Developed by the UK Quantum Technology hubs, modern atomic clocks have...

Quantum Tech Student Activity Laser Cooling

Lasers can be used to heat things up, and also to cool them down. Using carefully tuned lasers, scientists in the UK quantum technology hubs are able to slow atoms down to just a few centimetres per second, colder than the background of the universe. Students will learn about practical applications of atomic...
