The formal colloquium of the Institute of Physics, Polish Academy of
Sciences it the main ongoing periodic series of lectures in physics and
related science, of interest to members of the Institute. It is held from
1977. Colloquium speakers are primarily domestic and foreign scholars of
established reputation, but also less-known physicists with remarkable and
current scientific achievements. The colloquium is held once a month from
September to June, usually at 3:15 PM on the last Tuesday of the month in
the Auditorium of the Institute of Physics. Colloquia are open to the
public, and are preceded by a coffee/the reception at the Institute.
For future information about the colloquia, pleace contact Prof. Dr. hab. Tomasz Dietl
(email@example.com), current chairman of the colloquium committee.
NOTICE OF NEXT COLLOQUIUM
We are pleased to announce that on March 27th 2018 (Tuesday)
at 15:15 in the Institute of Physics, in the L. Sosnowski's auditorium
will be held colloquium of the Institute of Physics PAS, in which:
Dr. Damien Thompson
from Department of Physics at University of Limerick, Ireland,
will give a lecture entitled:
Nanoscale computer-aided design of supramolecular materials
We cordially invite to attend the colloquium and please to inform other interested persons.
Before the colloquium, at 14:45, participants are welcome for coffee, tea and biscuits.
In this talk I will describe the difficulties encountered in designing
materials at the nanoscale and present recent research in which computer
simulations are used to guide experiments to create novel materials for
devices. I will describe our attempts to decipher design rules for the
synthesis of large-area molecular tunnel junctions with giant rectification
of electrical current, graphene-based molecular sensors, and piezoelectric
amino acid crystals.
