Physics Colloquium Series: Professor Thomas Vojta

Date:
Tuesday, February 26th
Time:
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

(Physics Lecture Series) Missouri University of Science and Technology, Department of Physics "Quantum Phase Transitions and Quantum Materials" Condensed matter physics deals with the complex behavior of many-particle systems. Novel phases of matter can emerge as a result of strong interactions between the constituent quantum particles. A natural place to look for these phenomena are quantum phase transitions, the boundaries between different quantum ground states of matter. This talk first gives an introduction into quantum phase transitions and then discusses…

(Physics Lecture Series) University of Notre Dame, Department of Physics "Forging the Heaviest Elements" While the origins of the light (hydrogen, helium) and intermediate mass (carbon through iron) elements found in our solar system are well understood, we still don't know where roughly half of the elements heavier than iron were made. From the solar system abundance pattern of these nuclei, we can tell they were synthesized via rapid neutron captures in the r-process of nucleosynthesis. Exactly where the appropriate…
