LIVING WORLD LECTURE AT SUNYSB Darwin Day Distinguished Lecture David Jablonski “Mass Extinctions in the Fossil Record and Their Meaning for Today's World”
GEOLOGY LECTURE AT SUNYSB 7:30PM ESS001 Joel Hurowitz Lecture topic TBA
PHYSICS LECTURE AT SUNYSB 7:30PM ESS001 Alexander Orlov "How Nanotechnology Can Save Us and Environment: Making It Happen In a Safe Way" Nanotechnology is offering wonderful opportunities to make most of materials around us much better. Nanoparticles can help us to produce energy in a more efficient and less harmful way. They can also transform the environment around us and help us to clean it. Nanotechnology is opening new and exciting world for our civilization and we are still only at the beginning of this fantastic journey. However, there are questions about how safe those small particles are, and whether there are ways to make them safer. This lecture will discuss examples of emerging frontiers in this area while attempting to outline challenges in nanotechnology field.
LIPTA EXEC COMMITTEE MEETING - 9AM to 12 noon, in Blue Point this month. ALL LIPTA members are invited to join us in planning/running future LIPTA events.
PHYSICS LECTURE AT SUNYSB 7:30PM ESS001 Richard Lefferts: "Hot Ice and Wondrous Strange Snow: Some Recreational Science at the Extremes of Temperature"
PHYSICS LECTURE AT SUNYSB 7:30PM ESS001 Mengkun Liu Dr. Liu is an expert in ultrafast spectroscopy and infrared spectroscopy, including near-field nano-imaging and spectroscopy.
PHYSICS LECTURE AT SUNYSB 7:30PM ESS001 Matthew Eisaman: "Next-Generation Clean-Energy Technologies Explained" Next-Generation Clean-Energy Technologies Explained" To meet the goals of the recent Paris Agreement and limit the global temperature increase to 2 degrees Celsius, next-generation clean-energy technologies will need to move from the research and demonstration phase to mainstream deployment. In this talk, Dr. Eisaman will discuss a few examples of such technologies from his research, and explain the basic physics that underlie how these technologies work.
