Upcoming Events

Wednesday, January 29, 2020 - 3:30pm
Physics 130
Speaker: Itai Cohen (Cornell)
"Electronically integrated cell sized robots" What would we be able to do if we could build electronically integrated machines the at a scale of 50 microns? At this scale, semiconductor devices are small enough that we could put the computational power of the spaceship Voyager onto a machine that... Read More »

Fitzpatrick Center Schiciano Auditorium Side A, room 1464
Speaker: Brad Olsen, MIT
Associative polymer networks are everywhere: they are used to modify the texture of our food, the rheology of our consumer products, and to develop biomedical materials. They are used in enhanced oil recovery, and they also form the basis for many natural systems in our own bodies. While existing... Read More »

Physics 130
Speaker: Haiyan Gao (Duke University Physics Department)
"The Proton Remains Puzzling"Nucleons (protons and neutrons) are the building blocks of atomic nuclei, and are responsible for more than 99% of the visible matter in the universe. Despite decades of efforts in studying its internal structure, there are still a number of puzzles surrounding the... Read More »

Physics 130
Speaker: Kwang-Je Kim (University of Chicago)
"Advances in the Current and Future X-ray Sources"X-rays from synchrotron radiation (SR) and free-electron lasers (FELs) have huge impact in the recent advances in various areas of science and technology. Having gone through several generations of development, research facilities based on SR are... Read More »

Physics 278
Speaker: MacKenzie Warren, NCSU
The detection of neutrinos from the next galactic core-collapsesupernova (CCSN) has become almost a certainty. However, most modernsimulations of core-collapse supernovae still do not include neutrinoflavor mixing, due to uncertainties in the fundamental physics andlimited computational resources....

Fitzpatrick Center Schiciano Auditorium Side A, room 1464
Speaker: Caitlin Howell, University of Main
Liquid-infused surfaces inspired by the Nepenthes pitcher plant have recently been introduced as a new way to create materials with the bulk properties of solids and the surface properties of fluids. This approach is currently being used for a wide range of applications, including most prominently... Read More »
