Queen of Carbon Science to Speak at UA

Dr. Mildred Dresselhaus

Renowned physicist to present colloquium at UA Nov. 5.

Dr. Mildred Dresselhaus, an internationally known physicist and professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, will present a colloquium, “Graphene for Enhancement of Raman Effect”  at The University of Alabama Wednesday, Nov. 5 at 3:45 p.m. in room 227 of Gallalee Hall.

The talk is free and open to the public.

Dresselhaus is noted for her work in the thermal transport of naonstructures and the study of phonon and electronic-phonons.

Phonons play a major role in condensed matter’s physical properties, such as thermal conductivity and electrical conductivity. The study of phonons is an important part of condensed matter physics.
