Video Library

Since 2002 Perimeter Institute has been recording seminars, conference talks, and public outreach events 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 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

In 1983, Nielsen and Ninomiya predicted that the Adler-Bell-Jakiw (or chiral) anomaly should be observable in a crystal that has protected Dirac states in the bulk (3+1 D). Following recent progress in the field of Topological Quantum Matter, the anomaly has now been observed, most clearly in the two semimetals Na3Bi and GdPtBi. I will discuss the general problem of realizing Weyl Fermions in semimetals, and explain what the chiral anomaly is in condensed matter. I will remark on its historical context, starting with pion decay.
