Physics Colloquium

Storrs Campus

Prof. Roger Falcone, University of California, Berkeley and 2018 President of the American Physical Society

Science at High Energy Density and Work of the American Physical Society

Materials taken to extreme densities and temperatures exhibit unique properties due to changes in electronic structure. I will describe experiments, done at facilities that use the world’s highest energy lasers and x-ray lasers, to excite such materials and probe their properties. At the end if this talk I will focus on the work of the American Physical Society, in publishing, advocating for science, and reaching out to broader communities.
