EVENT CANCELLED
Speakers: Laurence Eaves

Presently Laurence is working with colleagues at the University of Manchester on the physics of transistors fabricated using grapheme which is a new "wonder" material consisting of a single sheet of carbon atoms bound in a two-dimensional hexagonal lattice. His work on gravity involves suspending fruit flies using a magnetic levitation
technique which nullifies the pull of gravity. He has used the same levitation technique to study the shape changes of levitating water droplets when they rotate above a critical velocity in zero gravity. In this talk, Laurence will discuss some of his recent research in graphene and magnetic levitation.
