Trinity term 2018

Week 1
Quantum materials public lecture 2018

18:00 on 26 April, Martin Wood lecture theatre

Co-hosted by the Oxford Department of Physics and the Oxford Physics Society, the lecture will be followed by a drinks reception in the Martin Wood Lecture Theatre Foyer.

Join us for an exploration of quantum materials – what they are,

what they can do, and why they are so profoundly interesting!

Solid matter contains unimaginably large numbers of electrons which determine many of the material’s properties. Although lots of materials can be described by treating these electrons as independent, research has uncovered an increasing number of ‘quantum materials’ that display non-trivial and often spectacular phenomena, resulting from many electrons acting in unison. In this lecture, Professor Andrew Boothroyd will introduce the field of quantum materials. draw upon recent work in Oxford, and describe how modern experimental techniques are making it possible to unpick complex ordered phases and identify exotic emergent particles.

Free for everyone.

Registration for drink reception is strongly recommended via this link.
