Quantum pumps subject of Science Division Colloquium
"A Quantum Pump for Electrons and Atoms" is the title of the presentation by Dr. Kunal Das, Associate Professor of Physics at Kutztown University, at the upcoming Science Division Colloquium on Friday, April 17 from 1:00-2:00 p.m. in room 123 of the Luerssen Building. This presentation is free and open to the public and light refreshments will be served.
The presentation relates to Das' research on quantum pumps in nanoscale systems. His talk will provide a simple, theoretical description of quantum pumps and an intuitive explanation of how various pump mechanisms operate, along with the intrinsic role played by quantum mechanics. Das intends to resolve some long standing misconceptions and ambiguities that have existed in this field.
The Division of Science Colloquium features faculty who conduct research on a wide variety of topics. Topics are of broad and general interest and are accessible to the non-expert. Students, faculty, staff, and interested members of the Penn State Berks and surrounding community are welcome and encouraged attend.
