Event description

Description

When J.J. Thomson discovered the electron in 1897, little could he imagine how it would transform our entire civilisation. Today, 120 years after this discovery, the electron is one of the most studied particles – and yet, its behaviour in lower dimensions is still puzzling. What happens when you trap electrons in a 2D plane? What happens to the current as a 1D wire is made thinner and thinner? And how are these connected with new technological breakthroughs?

Join Dr. James Nicholls in a journey where new structures are created to measure electron in lower dimensions at low temperatures. Is this going to be a second electronics revolution? Find out on the 5th of February, at Royal Holloway.

This is a free evening lecture from the Department of Physics at Royal Holloway, University of London and everyone is welcome.
