Physics Friday Colloquia

– Spring 2015

Intro2015spring

Department of Physics organizes a series of colloquia. Friday's colloquium is open to everyone. It will be served tea/coffee and biscuits from 14:00. Talk starts at 14:15.

Time: Friday at 14:15 - 15:00

Location: Realfagbygget R10 (Natural Science Building)

This year we have tried to put together a broad program of great speakers, so we do hope that you will join us regularly throughout this semester. Topics will include material science, nanoscience, life sciences and biophysics, atmospheric physics and more.

The Friday Colloquia are meant for a broad physics audience, so the speakers have been encouraged to make their talks accessible for groups varying from undergraduate students to professors of the various sections. We hope that you will find all of the colloquia interesting.

Coordinators: Michael Kachelriess and Robert Hibbins
