Physics Colloquium: ‘Resonant Thermal Transport: A New Route to Efficient Thermoelectric Energy Conversion’

October 22 @ 4:00 pm
CoorsTek Center for Applied Science and Engineering, 1523 Illinois St.
Golden, CO 80401 United States

Mahmoud Hussein University of Colorado, Boulder, Smead Department of Aerospace Engineering Sciences Abstract: Thermoelectric materials convert heat into electricity or vice versa through a solid-state process. For the conversion efficiency to be competitive with fluid-based technologies, a thermoelectric material must be a good insulator of heat while, simultaneously, exhibit good electrical properties‒a combination that is hard to find in common materials. Here we present the concept of a locally resonant nanophononic metamaterial (NPM) to overcome this natural trade-off in properties. One…

Planet

Hannah Jang-Condell University of Wyoming Abstract:  Exoplanets have been discovered in orbits as close as 0.05 AU, and as distant as hundreds of AU.  Hence, exoplanets are a hot topic, and they are also pretty cool.  Because these systems are so different from our own Solar System, they challenge conventional ideas of how planets form.  I will discuss what we can learn about planet formation both by examining the distribution of mature exoplanets as well as by directly studying infant…

Hennebach Lecture: Virus and Vector: Yellow Fever and Atlantic World Environmental History

Between the middle of the 17th century and the early 20th century, yellow fever raged throughout the Americas, killing huge numbers of people and transforming the geopolitics of the region. In the process, it came to be known as an “American plague,” and its successful eradication in Havana and then Panama became a stock chapter in heroic histories of American medicine. But both the virus and its vector are of African origin, and the disease itself also has had both…

Scott Jackson Los Alamos National Laboratory, Shock and Detonation Physics Group Abstract:  Condensed-phase explosives provide one of the most high-power and energy-dense storage materials available. They are commonly detonated to perform work on adjacent materials for engineering applications in the defense and mining industries, with several billion kilograms used in the United States alone per year. Despite their engineering utility and high level of use, very little is known about the reaction-zone physics and high-pressure product states generated during detonation…
