Magnetism in Amorphous Alloys: Nano Seminar Series

Seminar | February 1 | 2-3 p.m. | 4 LeConte Hall

 Prof. Frances Hellman, UC Berkeley, Physics & MSE

 Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute

Most condensed matter textbooks start by introducing crystal symmetries and the periodic lattice as foundational to the field. Yet, it has long been known that the amorphous structure supports ferromagnetism, superconductivity, and a host of other condensed matter properties.

Superconductivity theory was famously expanded from the original Bloch wave pairing to be described as pairing of...   More >

Chemical Tools for Investigating Reactive Sulfur Species

Seminar: Inorganic Chemistry | February 1 | 4-5 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall

 Michael Pluth, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, University of Oregon

 College of Chemistry

Reactive sulfur species, such as H2S and sulfane-sulfur compounds, play key roles in different (patho)physiological processes. In addition, these small molecules are also key targets for new donor motifs that function both as important research tools and pharmacological agents. Aligned with this importance, our lab has recently developed a palette of new donor motifs, including H2S- and...   More >
