This year, as in previous years , the Department of Physics and Astronomy will hold a special seminar on November 3 at 5:30 pm  to explain the achievements of this year's Nobel Prizes in Physics/Chemistry to the public in an easy and fun way.  https://www.flickr.com/photos/ttuphas/albums/72177720303449359  Nov 3 (Friday), Science Building (room 234) 5:30 - 6:00 pm Welcome/Pizza Served 6:00 - 7:00 pm Seminar 7:00 - 7:30 pm. Q&A As you may already know, the 2023 Nobel Prize in Physics  was awarded to Pierre Agostini, Ferenc Krausz, and Anne L’Huillier “for experimental methods that generate attosecond pulses of light for the study of electron dynamics in matter”. They have demonstrated a way to create extremely short pulses of light that can be used to measure the rapid processes in which electrons move or change energy.  https://www.nobelprize.org/prizes/physics/2023/press-release/ The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2023  was awarded to Moungi Bawendi, Louis Brus, and Aleksey Yekimov “for the discovery and synthesis of quantum dots”. Quantum dots now illuminate computer monitors and television screens based on QLED technology (e.g., SAMSUNG QLED TV). They also add nuance to the light of some LED lamps, and biochemists and doctors use them to map biological tissue.  https://www.nobelprize.org/prizes/chemistry/2023/press-release/ We hope this special seminar will be a great opportunity for you to learn more about this year's Nobel Prizes in Physics/Chemistry, and we would like to thank our own Drs. Chatzakis, DeGottardi, Eo, and Kim who willingly agreed to give this special seminar. For those who can't attend in person, the meeting will also be broadcast on Zoom (see the link below). https://texastech.zoom.us/j/7473952498?pwd=K2lvYmxDQVdZbWx4WWNEejUzdjhaQT09 Meeting ID: 747 395 2498 Passcode: 175099 We hope to see many of you in SC 234 (or on Zoom) on November 3rd. Also, if you have friends or colleagues who may be interested in attending, please forward this invitation to them as well.
