Rice University Professor of Physics and Astronomy Dr. Randy Hulet discusses the coldest things in the universe at today’s Rice Science Cafe. Hulet and his research group investigate atoms at temperatures as low as a few nano-Kelvin. During today’s Science Cafe, he’ll discuss ultracold atom collisions, the pairing of atomic Fermi gases, Bose-Einstein condensation and the effects of quantum mechanics on atomic behavior. To be honest, we don’t know what the hell a Kelvin is or what a Fermi gas looks like, but that’s the beauty of the Science Cafe meetings. People with no science background mingle and chat with local brainiac experts who are performing cutting-edge research. Hulet starts the evening off with an informal talk about his work, then opens the floor for discussion.
Tue., Sept. 18, 6:30 p.m., 2012
