Title Saturday Physics for Everyone: "How Laws, Sausages, and Science are Made: an Inside View of How Science Really Works"
Speaker Professor Peter Abbamonte, Physics Department
Date: 10/24/2015
Time: 10:15 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.

Originating Calendar: Physics - Saturday Physics for Everyone

Professor Abbamonte studies how electrons interact inside materials. He and his group look at materials exhibiting quantum behaviors and observe how these materials behave when charge or spin inside the materials change. Most of their experiments use x-rays, electrons, or visible light and are carried out at Department of Energy national labs, such as Argonne National Laboratory.

In this talk Professor Abbamonte will tell us how science is done in real life–and how it is similar to and different from making laws and sausages.
