Physics Public Lecture – Tying Electrons into Knots: The New Science of Topological Materials

August 28, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Free
FLEETLaunch[1]

Until recently it was thought that every material could be classified into one of two types: metals, which conduct electricity, and insulators, which don’t. Recently physicists proposed and then discovered a new type: topological insulators, which are insulating in their interior but conduct along their surfaces or edges, a discovery which was recognised by the 2016 Nobel Prize in Physics. The lecture will cover: * Why quantum mechanics makes some materials metals and others insulators * How topology makes some…

PUBLIC LECTURE – Good vibrations: Using ambient seismic signals to explore deep continents and distant oceans

November 28, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Anya Reading

Professor Anya Reading, School of Natural Sciences, University of Tasmania. Seismic ‘noise’, the background ambient signals recorded by seismic stations around the planet, can be utlised to infer the structure of the deep continents, the 3D architecture of the tectonic plates. Ocean storms, at incredible distances, also transmit signals to seismic stations on land. Archive seismic records can hence be used to investigate storms, and possible changes in storm patterns, over recent decades. This presentation will survey the variety of…

The Advanced LIGO gravitational wave detectors have so far undertaken two observing runs, O1 and O2, with spectacular results. At the start of O1 in September 2015 the hundred year quest to directly detect gravitational waves on Earth was quickly realised with the detection of a clear and strong gravitational wave signal coming from the cataclysmic collision of two large black holes in a binary system some 1.3 billion years ago. Towards the end of O2 in August 2017 we…
