Video Library

Since 2002 Perimeter Institute has been recording seminars, conference talks, public outreach events such as talks from top scientists using video cameras installed in our lecture theatres.  Perimeter now has 7 formal presentation spaces for its many scientific conferences, seminars, workshops and educational outreach activities, all with advanced audio-visual technical capabilities. 

Recordings of events in these areas are all available and On-Demand from this Video Library and on Perimeter Institute Recorded Seminar Archive (PIRSA)PIRSA is a permanent, free, searchable, and citable archive of recorded seminars from relevant bodies in physics. This resource has been partially modelled after Cornell University's arXiv.org. 

Accessibly by anyone with internet, Perimeter aims to share the power and wonder of science with this free library.

When nuclear matter is heated beyond a temperature of 2 trillion

degrees, it converts into a strongly coupled plasma of quarks and

gluons, the sQGP. Experiments using highly energetic collisions

between heavy nuclei have revealed that this new state of matter is a

nearly ideal, highly opaque liquid. A description based upon string

theory and black holes in five dimensions has made the quark- gluon

plasma an iconic example of a strongly coupled quantum system. In this

The spectrum of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) is known to be extremely close to a perfect blackbody. However, even within standard cosmology several processes occurring in the early Universe lead to distortions of the CMB at a level that might become observable in the future. This could open an exciting new window to early Universe physics.
