Lecture

The Nature of Things: Crystals and their Symmetry
Heinrich Jaeger

Location: The Renaissance Society
Admission: free
 

Jaeger, Professor of Physics at the University of Chicago, specializes in the physics of condensed matter ranging from hard to soft matter research. As head of the University's Materials Research Center, Jaeger heads a leading team of physicists studying interactions between many more or less identical ?building blocks? that make up larger complex structures and show collective effects. These building blocks include particles that are macroscopic and others that have nanoscale dimensions, such as nanocrystals. Needless to say, snow crystals fall within his purview. Learn about the beauty and behavior of crystals from someone involved in the most advanced research.
