Saturday Physics Series Lecture, "Quantum Glasses"
Presented by: Professor Rahul Nandkishore
Most quantum systems eventually follow the laws of equilibrium statistical physics after they come to equilibrium with their environment. Recently, however, some intriguing exceptions - "quantum glass" - have been discovered. Quantum glasses remain quantum even at large scales and long times, and support new quantum phases of matter. In this talk we will explore their properties.
The Department of Physics proudly presents the Saturday Physics Series, lectures geared toward high school students and adults to highlight the exciting research and practical potential of physics.
All lectures are free and open to the public and located in Duane Physical Laboratories, room G1B30. Cookies and lemonade will be available after the lecture and talkback.
