Physics colloquium-“Toward a 100% Renewable Power Grid: Reality or Rhetoric?”

February 26 @ 4:00 pm
Berthoud Hall, 1516 Illinois St.
Golden, CO 80401 United States

Paul Denholm NREL Abstract:  There is growing interest, along with many state and local policy initiatives, for various regions to derive 100% of their electricity from renewable sources. But there are a number of economic and technical challenges associated with making this a reality. This talk will focus on three of the big challenges to increasing our use of wind and solar energy on the power grid. First, how can we maintain a cost-effective grid with large amounts of wind…

Mathias Schubert University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Dept. of Electrical & Computer Engineering Abstract: In the late eighteen hundreds, an epic battle raged upon the introduction of electricity and electric energy. Sides were taken and bitterly defended either in favor of direct (DC) or for alternating current (AC) . The winner is known well, and the scores seem to be settled eternally. Yet, most recent breakthrough developments in solid state physics may turn the fate, after all, in favor of DC. A…

Tigran Sedrakyan University of Massachusetts, Amherst Abstract: Topologically ordered states, such as the quantum spin liquids, are new states of matter with various exotic properties, including emergent excitations with fractional quantum numbers and fractional statistics, and robust topology-dependent ground state degeneracies. This makes quantum spin liquids promising candidate materials for quantum computers and other transformative low-power electronics that are expected to provide revolutionary changes to how we process and store data. In this talk, I will give an overview of…

Maxime Brodeur University of Notre Dame Abstract: The atomic nucleus is a quantum mechanical object that aims at reaching its minimum energy state through various possible types of transitions mediated by fundamental forces of nature. One of the most common type of these radioactive transition, the beta decay, is governed by the weak interaction, one of three interactions included in the Standard Model of particle physics. In my talk I will show how the study of a special class of…
