Anna Backerra is a theoretical physicist and composer
Anna Backerra has graduated in theoretical physics at the Eindhoven University of Technology in The Netherlands. After working for several years on the science staff at the Philips Research Laboratories, she began an independent theoretical study on quantum mechanics and complementarity. To develop a way of complementary thinking, she studied composition at the Conservatory in Enschede (The Netherlands) and in Saint Petersburg (Russia). She discovered that new musical and physical developments in history usually occur simultaneously, revealing a deeper scientific understanding. Using this similarity, she constructed a complementary mathematical language and applied this on physics, obtaining twin physics.
The results are described in two books and nine articles. The last one is titled “Relation between Planck’s Constant and Speed of Light, Predicting Proton Radius More Accurately” and published in Applied Physics Research; Vol. 11, No. 5; 2019. The titles of the previous eight articles can be found under “Publications”.
In April 2018 her collected and expanded scientific work is published by Lambert Academic Publishing under the title of: “Twin Physics, The Complementary Model of Phenomena”. The abstract can be found under “Publications”.

In 2019 she was invited speaker at the Global Conference on Nanotechnology; Materials Science, Valencia, Spain, April 8-10; at the 5th International Conference on Quantum and Plasma Physics, Stockholm, Sweden, May 9-10; at the 6th World Congress on Physics, May 13-14, Paris; at the 5th International Conference and Expo on Ceramics and Composite Materials, London, June 3-4; and at the EMN Meeting (Energy Materials and Nanotechnology) Saint-Petersburg, Russia June 18-22.
In 2018 she was invited speaker at the EMN Meeting (Energy-Materials-Nanotechnology), Dubrovnik, Croatia, May 7-9; at the International Conference on Nano Technology and Nano Engineering in Paris, July 16-18; at the World Congress on Materials Science Engineering, Amsterdam, August 23-25 and at Serbian Ceramic Society Conference, Belgrade, Serbia, September 17-19.
In 2017, June 18-22, she was invited speaker at the EMN Quantum Meeting in Vienna, Austria.
The development of physics into music was inspired by writing the dreamlike novel Serpentines van Licht (‘Serpentines of Light’). She performed solo music theater with violin improvisations for children for five years, studied composition with David Rowland at the Conservatory of Enschede (the Netherlands), took a summer course on Schönberg in Vienna with Allen Forte and rounded out her education with Boris Tischenko (St. Petersburg), formerly assistant to Shostakovich.
In 2009 she completed the opera Ulrike Meinhof, based on a libretto by Arnoud Kremers. Listen here to the Overture, played by an ensemble of Taurida Orchestra from Saint Petersburg, conducted by Michail Golikov.Listen here to a fragment of the opera Ulrike Meinhof
