The HCES Innovation Talks showcases leaders in Engineering Industry and Research. This year’s speakers are Massimo Banzi, co-founder of Arduino; MIT Professor Robert Langer, accomplished innovator in biotech and the most cited engineer in history; and Harvard Professor Prineha Narang, leading researcher in Quantum Materials. The i-talks will take place on 3.21.2018 (Wed), Science Center E (lower level) from 5 pm – 6:30 pm. Doors will close promptly at 5 pm. Refreshments will be served at the conclusion.
This week, Dr. Narang travels to Chilean Patagonia to join other experts and researchers in a discussion of physics, chemistry, and materials science. Read the article here!
Electron Hydrodynamics in Crystalline Solids: Microscopic Origins, Mesoscopic Size Effects, and Macroscopic Observables George Varnavides (Zoom link available on request) Abstract: Despite the continued scaling down of transistors since the invention of the integrated circuit over seventy years ago, recent trends have deviated from Moore's predictions, due to fundamental physical limitations including heat dissipation. With [...]
