Discovering New Quantum Materials Topic for April 17

quantum-materials-david-mandrusDr. David Mandrus, professor and Jerry and Key Henry Endowed Professor of Materials Sciences and Engineering, will present “Discovering New Quantum Materials: The Key Roles of Frustration and Broken Symmetry” at the next UT Science Forum Friday, April 17.

Although new materials are the engine that drives much of condensed matter physics and materials science, the conceptual process by which new materials are discovered is rarely discussed. Mandrus will discuss strategies for finding new materials that advance our basic understanding of matter.

The UT Science Forum is a weekly lunch lecture series that takes place from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena, Rooms C-D. All lectures are free and open to the public.
