2023 Chemistry Department Seminar Featuring Dr. Ranga Dias

The guest speaker at the Chemistry Department seminar, Dr. Ranga Dias, will present his research results on high temperature superconductivity and magnetism.

Date: Thursday, March 16, 2023
Time: 12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m.
Location: Pioch 101

Meet Dr. Ranga Dias, the University of Rochester scientist who has made worldwide news about discovering room temperature superconductivity! Dias was named by Time magazine among the 100 Most Influential People in 2021.

The importance of room temperature superconductors for solving the world energy crisis can't be emphasized enough. The next revolution in technology achieved through a wide use of room temperature superconductors will change the way we live on Earth and take care of our planet. One famous example of superconductors use is a real example of modern hoverboard https://youtu.be/ZeklZmwbjWo?t=49.

Highlights: Experiments on materials at extreme pressure and temperature conditions demonstrate how materials alter their properties in many fundamental ways. This field provides exciting opportunities for one to discover new materials, novel phenomena, and exotic states of matter that are not present at the ambient conditions. Dr. Dias' research efforts not only address fundamental understanding but are also directed towards utilizing high pressure and temperature conditions to understand chemical processes and interactions to synthesize novel advanced materials, such as high energy density materials, superhard solids, and quantum materials.
