Saturday Physics for Everyone
|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|
|Time:||10:15 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.|
Room 141, Loomis Laboratory of Physics, 1110 West Green Street, Urbana, IL
|Contact:||Toni Pitts, Coordinator of Recruiting and Special Programs
|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.
