California Institute of Technology recently issued the following announcement.
Watson Lecture - Opportunities in Atomic-Scale Legoland: From Novel Electronic Phases to Quantum Devices
Wednesday, November 6, 2019
8:00pm to 9:30pm
Stevan Nadj-Perge, Assistant Professor of Applied Physics and Materials Science; KNI-Wheatley Scholar, Caltech
Are there limits to how small electronic devices can be? In this lecture, Nadj-Perge will discuss materials that are only a few atoms thick and how, just like Lego bricks, they can be stacked together in limitless different configurations to explore new phenomena at atomic scales.
This event is free and open to the public; however, registration is requested via Eventbrite. Registration is not a guaranteed seat or a reserved ticket*. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, beginning at 7:30 p.m.
* Reserved tickets are printed tickets available in advance from the Caltech Ticket Office to members of The Friends of Beckman Auditorium and The Caltech Associates, and to Caltech alumni. A reserved ticket guarantees a seat until 7:45 p.m., and grants access to a reserved section in the auditorium. If you are a member of The Friends of Beckman or The Caltech Associates, or are a graduate of Caltech, please contact the Ticket Office to reserve your Watson Lecture tickets.
About the Speaker
Stevan Nadj-Perge is Assistant Professor of Applied Physics and Materials Science and a KNI-Wheatley Scholar in the Division of Engineering and Applied Science.
About the Series
Since 1922, The Earnest C. Watson Lecture Series has has brought Caltech's most innovative scientific research to the public. The series is named for Earnest C. Watson, a professor of physics at Caltech from 1919 until 1959. Spotlighting a small selection of the pioneering research Caltech's faculty is currently conducting, the Watson Lectures are geared toward a general audience, as part of the Institute's ongoing commitment to benefiting the local community through education and outreach. Through a gift from the estate of Richard C. Biedebach, the lecture series is able to highlight assistant professors' research each season.
