Expert advice from applied physicists

A group of applied physicists have set up a web site to share their expertise and help businesses apply and exploit new technology. ‘The Network’ is a group of physicists with business experience who feel that they can offer industry and commerce a mixture of engineering pragmatism and expert mathematical analysis. With members skilled in areas ranging from acoustics to X-rays and optics to project management, the site – www.physics-business.co.uk – gives details of around 30 independent consultants . ‘The Network’ also claims that its members are as comfortable dealing with emergency situations as they are with long-term planned projects.
