Moulton Hall

Location:
Moulton Hall 105 S. School Street
Normal, IL

Moulton Hall is home to the Office of the University Registrar. The Registrar’s Office consists of: the Registrar Service Center, Veterans Services, Academic Records & Evaluation Services, and Transcripts and Verifications. Academic Scheduling and the Department of Physics are also housed in this building.

Moulton Hall was named after Samuel Moulton, a University founder and congressman who mortgaged his property to keep the University going through the Civil War. Samuel Moulton was also a member of the original Board of Education. The hall opened in 1920 and first became the Thomas Metcalf Laboratory School for teachers and classes (K-12). Adlai Stevenson was one of the school’s most famous pupils.

(Physics Lecture Series) Millikin University, Department of Physics "Engineering Nanostructured Materials for Advanced Lithography, Optoelectronics, and Beyond" Nanomaterials have attracted attention due to their immense potential in modern nanoscale optoelectronics, photonic and plasmonic devices. With the rapid progress in the system requirements, driven in part by Moore’s law, the demand for lower dimension and cost effectiveness has also increased. Among several approaches to achieve this goal, block copolymers (BCPs) have received considerable attention due to the inherent self-assembly property which…

4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

(Physics Lecture Series) Washington University in St. Louis, Department of Physics "Physics by Proximity to Graphene" Electrons in graphene—an atomically thin sheet of carbon atoms on a honeycomb lattice—live entirely on a surface: there is no volume for them to hide in. Thus, anything in contact with the surface can impact the electronic properties of this material. Usually the result is called “disorder” and considered a nuisance. In contrast, I will present two ongoing experiments that seek to turn this…

Time:
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

(Physics Lecture Series) University of Illinois, Department of Materials Science and Engineering "Three Dimensionally Mesostructured Materials for Energy Storage and Light Harvesting" Over the past decade, the sophistication of approaches for mesostructuring of materials has increased dramatically, however, application of such structures in real- world systems has remained largely elusive, in part because such structures almost always contain finite defect densities, and in part because of the limited subset of materials which can be appropriately structured. The storing, generating and…

(Physics Lecture Series) Washington University in St. Louis, Department of Physics "The Arrow of Time in Quantum Measurement" What can quantum measurement tell us about the arrow of time? To answer this question, we use cutting edge techniques involving superconducting circuits cooled to near absolute zero to capture “movies” of quantum behavior. When we press rewind on an ordinary movie of everyday life, the movie looks strange and shows very unlikely behavior: people walk backwards, water flows up hill, and…

(Physics Lecture Series) University of Notre Dame, Department of Physics "Accelerator Mass Spectrometry, from Ocean circulation to the life and death of stars" Evolving from methods and techniques developed in nuclear physics, Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS) is a highly sensitive detection technique developed to search for the proverbial nuclear “needle-in-the haystack”. Using this method, we can identify specific isotopes to investigate phenomena from ocean current flows, to the age of archaeological artifacts, to the birth and death of stars. In…

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. Here we will discuss two attractive potential sites – core-collapse supernovae and neutron star mergers – and describe how progress in open issues in neutrino and nuclear physics may be the key to unlocking this longstanding mystery.

Climate warming has the potential to have a substantial influence on how lakes function. We have found that lakes are warming around the world, in many cases faster than air temperatures. Continued warming will lead to a range of consequences depending upon lake type and location, including decreases in water quality and fish catches.

(Physics Lecture Series) University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, Department of Physics "When Stars Attack! Near-Earth Supernova Explosions Revealed by Deep-Ocean and Lunar Radioactivity" Supernova explosions dramatically announce the deaths of massive stars via spectacular outbursts of photons and neutrinos. Supernovae are also particle accelerators, and create many of the elements essential for life. Yet these awesome events take a sinister shade when they occur close to home, because an explosion very nearby would pose a grave threat to Earthlings. We will…
