2017 Michelson Postdoctoral Prize recipient public lecture, seminars

Liang Wu, of the University of California at Berkeley, will be awarded the 2017 Michelson Postdoctoral Prize for his groundbreaking experimental studies of topological materials.

Wu will be in residence this week (Sept. 11–15) and will give a public lecture and three technical seminars.

His lecture, titled “Quantized electro-dynamical responses in topological materials,” will be held Thursday, Sept. 14, from 4 to 5 p.m. in Rockefeller Building, Room 301.

His technical seminars will be:

  • “Low-energy Electrodynamics of 3D Topological Insulators”—today (Sept. 11) from 12:45 to 1:45 p.m. in Rockefeller Building, Room 221
  • “Giant nonlinear optical responses in Weyl semimetals”: Tuesday, Sept. 12, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Rockefeller Building, Room 221
  • “Antiferromagnetic resonance and in-gap terahertz continuum in Kitaev Honeycone magnet α−RuCl3”: Friday, Sept. 15, from 12:45 to 1:45 p.m. in Rockefeller Building, Room 221
