Event Details:

Don't miss this next talk in the SLAC Public Lecture Series, "Physical Attraction: The Mysteries of Magnetism" with Joachim Stöhr, Professor and Deputy Director of Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory.

This lecture will provide a glimpse at the magic and science behind magnetism: its long history, scientific breakthroughs in its understanding, and its use in our modern society. In the process Stöhr will show how research at SSRL/SLAC is addressing some of the forefront issues in magnetism research and technology today.

This lecture is part of a recurring program aimed at the local non-scientific community. These talks explore the research, the facilities, and the people that make SLAC a world-class research institute. After the talk stick around for refreshments and the chance to chat with physicists.
