Science Sundays: Roland Kawakami, nano electronics |
Roland Kawakami of UC Riverside physics and nanoelectrics will present lecture: Two Dimensional Electronics and Spin-Based Computers
Free and open to the public. Reception to follow immediately after lecture.
Can you imagine electronic devices as thin as a single atomic layer? What about powerful new computer chips that take advantage of the electron's spin, a quirky aspect of quantum mechanics that makes electrons into tiny magnets? How about studying relativistic physics in a table-top experiment? Once upon a time this had to be considered science fiction, but it is now becoming a reality at the forefront of nanoscale physics and nanotechnology research. In this talk, I will tell you about the latest advances around the world and in my lab on two dimensional crystals, atomic sized electronics, and spin-based computing.
