A hard-theoretical competition!

In the afternoon of May 9, 2018, the students completed the theoretical examination following their stressful experimental competition two days ago. If the Experimental Examination required students’skills, quick wits and creativity, the Theoretical one tested their general knowledge of Physics. Mr. Dang Duc Vuong, member of the Professional Subcommittee commented that: “The Theoretical Examination was developed very well. It has three parts with one different problem. This year, the three chosen problems are: Optical trap of neutral atoms; Space elevator; Thermoelectric effects and their applications in thermoelectric generator and refrigerator. After the students finished their assignments, two copies of their answer were sent to the examiners and team leaders. The…

APhO 2018 Experimental Competition: Difficult but Interesting

  On May 7, 2018,  188 contestants started the first challenge of APhO 2018 with the experimental competition. The theme of this examination was “Giant Magnetoresistance Effect”.  Giant magnetoresistance  (GMR) is a quantum mechanical magnetoresistance effect observed in multilayers composed of alternating ferromagnetic and non-magnetic conductive layers. The 2007 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Albert Fert and Peter Grünberg for the discovery of GMR. The main application of GMR is magnetic field sensors, which are used to read data in hard disk…
