Making of An American Scientist

Rate this:
Trying to create a device that can measure the flow of heat at a quantum level, postdoctoral student Keith Schwab confronts the uncertainty principle not only in physics but in life as well. This program follows the arduous quest of a charismatic young physicist and the personal price of his dedication to a long-term goal. Working at Caltech with his mentor, Professor Michael Roukes, Keith sees how his ambitious experiment is less technical than artistic, requiring intuition, courage, vision, sacrifice, and the ability to cope with constant failure. Interviews with his professors and fellow Ph.D. students complete this engaging story of what it means to pursue a career in physics.
