Physics or is it physique?
Pop singer Britney Spears is the star of an internet website which blends her physique with physics to explain the intricacies of semiconductors and lasers! Entitled `Britney Spears guide to semi conductor physics` the site is studded with pin-up photographs atop lengthy explanations on key semiconductor applications like P-N junctions and vertical cavity surface emitting lasers - the technology that enables fans to hear her voice on CD. The site includes a `Britney Spears lip glossary of semi conductor terms`, a selection of `Wallpaper` pictures for downloading and a contest to give a technological twist to Britney`s songs.
The site author Carl Hepburn, is a postgraduate student at Essex University in Colchester Northeast of London.
The light-hearted site has recorded two million hits so far and has been highly rated by respected journals like Scientific American and New Scientist.
