Explore "Graphene Flatland" with Dr. Oskar Vafek

Release date: April 06, 2009

Physicists are in the grips of graphene madness...They are packing conference rooms at meetings to hear about atom-thick sheets of honeycombed carbon called 'graphene' that may one day replace silicon as the basic unit of ultrafast electronics.  Graphene also shows promise for broadband satellite communication. And... Who knows?  Only the future will tell.

Come to hear Dr. Oskar Vafek, a distinguished Goucher Alumnus, and a professor of physics at Florida State University and National High Magnetic Field Laboratory,  talk about microscopic properties of this new fascinating material on Thursday, April 16 at 4:30pm in Kelly Lecture Hall.

Prof. Vafek's colloquium is sponsored by the Taylor Lecture Fund, the Department of Physics and Astronomy , the Physics and Astronomy Club and the Society of Physics Students Chapter at Goucher College.
