Watson Lecture - Opportunities in Atomic-Scale Legoland: From Novel Electronic Phases to Quantum Devices

Wednesday November 6, 2019 8:00 PM
Speaker: Stevan Nadj-Perge, Caltech
Location: Beckman Auditorium

Are there limits to how small electronic devices can be? In this lecture, Nadj-Perge will discuss materials that are only a few atoms thick and how, just like Lego bricks, they can be stacked together in limitless different configurations to explore new phenomena at atomic scales.

This event is free; no tickets or reservations are required. A minimum of 700 seats will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, beginning at 7:30 p.m. Reserved section tickets are available to members of The Friends of Beckman Auditorium and the Caltech Associates, and to Caltech alumni.

About the Speaker

Stevan Nadj-Perge is Assistant Professor of Applied Physics and Materials Science and a KNI-Wheatley Scholar in the Division of Engineering and Applied Science.

About the Series

Since 1922, The Earnest C. Watson Lecture Series has has brought Caltech's most innovative scientific research to the public. The series is named for Earnest C. Watson, a professor of physics at Caltech from 1919 until 1959. Spotlighting a small selection of the pioneering research Caltech's faculty is currently conducting, the Watson Lectures are geared toward a general audience, as part of the Institute's ongoing commitment to benefiting the local community through education and outreach. Through a gift from the estate of Richard C. Biedebach, the lecture series is able to highlight an assistant professor's research each season.
