When: Friday, February 01, 2013 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM
Where: Chemistry : Marker Seminar Room
Event Type(s): Colloquium
Louis E. Brus, a professor at Columbia University in New York and the winner of the first Kavli prize in Nanoscience, will speak at the University of Maryland on February 1, 2013, at 3 pm.
Prof. Brus' research spans multiple frontiers of the physical chemistry of materials. He is best known for his work on quantum dots, which straddle the physical line between semiconductors and molecules. This unique substance can be used in applications such as transistors, solar cells, LEDs, and diode lasers; as agents for medical imaging; and possibly as qubits in quantum computing.
The presentation is the first NanoColloquium of 2013 from the Maryland NanoCenter, and is also a part of the Distinguished Speaker Seminar Series presented by the College of Mathematical and Natural Science's Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.
