Real Scientists Nano

The Real Scientists Nano project consists of two parts: The twitter account which is taken over (curated) by a different scientist every week, and a podcast in which we interview the curators about their work and careers. The twitter takeover is an extension of the broader and wider Real Scientists account which runs on a similar concept. 

Find out about all our past curators and listen to their interviews here!

Our vision

We want to bridge the gap between materials and nano scientists and the general public. 

Our Mission

Through twitter and podcasting, we provide a free accessible platform for scientists to engage with the public.

We encourage scientists to discuss both their research and their experiences, to challenge stereotypes and provide diverse role models.

So many exciting results here during the day. I hope you found an interesting read or two as well! I enjoyed a lot reading the mentioned papers. Have a good evening everyone! 👋

Combining #microwaves and #superconductivity, getting amazing results and then presenting it in such a clear and didactic manner in @NaturePhysics. Great work from Katharina Franke’s group at @FU_Berlin https://www.nature.com/articles/s41567-020-0972-z.pdf?origin=ppub
