PAST PROGRAMS

International large-scale experiments are playing an ever-increasing role in the advances in physics and astronomy. The past few years have seen Nobel Prizes from discoveries in physics experiments, including neutrino experiments in Japan and Canada that established that neutrinos have mass and oscillate, the discovery of the Higgs Boson in two...

On the 24th of May 2017 at Uppsala University Frank Wilczek (Professor of Physics at MIT and winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics 2004) spoke at the Department of Astronomy & Physics on the theme "time crystals".

From copper-oxide superconductors to rare-earth compounds, materials and quantum systems with strong correlations have focused enormous attention over several decades. Solid-state chemistry, new elaboration techniques and improved experimental probes are constantly providing us with examples of novel materials with surprising electronic properties....
