Spins and Charges in Low dimensions
Nov. 19, 2008
4 to 5 p.m.
Swain Hall West 119, IU Bloomington

Free and open to the public. Amir Yacoby of Harvard University will discuss the physics of elementary particles under conditions of constraint. The confinement of electrons to low dimension offers rich possibilities for exploring new physics in a controllable environment. In such restricted geometries, electronic excitations often acquire surprising physical properties that are a result of the underlying lattice and the Coulomb interaction among the electrons.
