Join Dr. Andrew O’Bannon on a journey to the cutting edge of theoretical physics: holography.

Holography is the bold idea that all the information in our 3D universe may be contained in a mysterious 2D image, like a hologram.

Promising not only to unite Einstein’s relativity with quantum physics, holography also has the potential to provide us with cleaner energy, faster computers, and novel electronics.

Dr. O’Bannon has been researching holography for 15 years now, at major research centres all over the world: from Seattle, Washington to Munich, Germany as well as both Cambridge and Oxford here in England.

He is currently a Royal Society University Research Fellow at the University of Southampton.
