Past Special Events

Franklin Institute Award lecture: "Stacking van der Waals Atomic Layers: Quest for New Quantum Materials"

Philip Kim (Harvard University)
- Glandt Forum in the Singh Center for Nanotechnology (also Live via Zoom)

Modern electronics rely heavily on technology that confines electrons in the interface layers of semiconductors. In recent years, scientists have discovered that they can isolate various atomically thin van der Waals…

Special Seminar: “Reconstructing Gravity from Cosmological data”

Alessandra Silvestri (Leiden University)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 4N12

The era of precision Cosmology is around the corner and it promises to shed light on some of the long-standing questions such as the nature of gravity on the large cosmological scales. However,…

Eli Burstein Lecture in Materials Science: "Shedding Nano-Light on Quantum Materials"

Dmitri N. Basov (Columbia University)
- Glandt Forum (3rd Floor), Singh Center for Nanotechnology, 3205 Walnut Street

Optical imaging is pervasive in daily life and in modern technology. Unfortunately, optics encounters problems when it comes to “seeing” objects that are much smaller than the wavelength of light. And that is the…

Elon Musk Public Lecture: "Cosmic Inflation: My journey to the edge of science"

Andreas Albrecht (Department of Physics & Astronomy, UC Davis)
- Bodek Lounge, Houston Hall (HH100)

In 1982, while a grad student at Penn, my advisor and I wrote a paper that has since become very famous.
