Condensed Matter Seminar Series

SPRING QUARTER 2011 

Welcome to the homepage for the Condensed Matter Physics Seminar Series hosted by the Department of Physics & Astronomy at Northwestern University. The Condensed Matter Seminar Series highlights a broad range of current research in experimental and theoretical condensed matter physics, including interdisciplinary research involving hard and soft condensed matter physics, atomic, molecular and optical sciences, and materials science. During the academic year the seminar meets weekly on Thursday afternoon at 4 pm in the Physics and Astronomy Department conference room, F235 in the Technological Institute, 2145 Sheridan Road on the Evanston Campus.
