Speaker: Christopher M. Spadaccini (LLNL)
"Additive Manufacturing and Architected Materials" Material properties are governed by the chemical composition and spatial arrangement of constituent elements at multiple length scales. This fundamentally limits material properties with respect to each other creating trade-offs when selecting... Read More »

Speaker: Dan Dessau (Univ. Colorado)
Abstract: Angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) has recently emerged as one of the most powerful probes of the electronic structure of a solid, directly giving the detailed energy-momentum dispersion relations (band structures), Fermi surfaces, etc. ¿ properties that are the starting...

Physics 298
Speaker: David Drosdoff (NCCU)
Abstract: Forces may be induced by fluctuations of any thermodynamic parameter. The most well known fluctuation induced force is the Van-der-Waals/Casimir force, which is due to the dipolar fluctuations. A less studied force is the force due to monopolar charge fluctuations, which are related to... Read More »
