This is our third year hosting the “Trends in Physics” talks at the APS March meeting and we have three exciting talks lined up. Gerrit Bauer begins the evening with an overview of a new class of potentially energy-saving thermoelectric materials in which heat is carried by spin. Physics meets biology in Raymond Goldstein’s talk on the collective motion of microscopic “swimmers,” like cells. John Pendry concludes the evening with the latest on designing invisibility cloaks with optical metamaterials.
Come a bit early for pizza and beer. The talks begin at 7:30. A full program can be found here.
For those that can’t make it, we’ll post videos of the talks so you can watch at any time.
