On Tuesday, May 24, 2017, the students participating in the national finals of the Canadian Physics Olympiad at UBC were invited to visit the Stewart Blusson Quantum Matter Institute and, accompanied by Dr. Andrzej Kotlicki, participated in a tour of the new facilities. Led by Research Associates James Day and Georgio Levy, the group visited the Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM) and the Angle-Resolved Photoemission Spectroscopy (ARPES) facilities. The students are at UBC competing for a chance to represent Canada at the International Physics Olympiad taking place in Indonesia in July 2017, and based on the questions and curiosity exhibited during their visit, they would all be exceptional representatives for Canada at the upcoming international event.
