Physics Colloquium

Interdisciplinary Materials Science: Rubber bands, spiders, Fermi surfaces and d-electrons.

J. S. Brooks, Physics Dept. and National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, Florida State University

Materials science is becoming ever more diverse and interdisciplinary, with new materials and new experimental capabilities constantly advancing; for many of us this is a very exciting time for education and research. In this presentation, directed at a general audience, I will review some of the activities and projects that are currently underway at Florida State University and the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, spanning topics from high school to graduate school, and from soft to hard matter.
