SMP 12/13/03 | Where Does the Real World Meet Superconductors? | Speaker: Sa-Lin Cheng Bernstein

Saturday, December 13, 2003
12:00 AM
170 & 182 Dennison Building

Speaker: Dr. Sa-Lin Cheng Bernstein (U-M Physics)

Superconductivity is a field with many practical applications. Dr. Sa-Lin Cheng Bernstein will talk about a well-known example called the Maglev train, which can reach speeds of 250+ mi/hr riding on a bed of magnetic fields produced by superconducting magnets. She will discuss additional applications including Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) medical devices and particle accelerators (atom-smashers) for high-energy physics research.

Detailed Information
All talks are free and refreshments will be served. Visitor parking for the seminars (Central Campus) is across the street from the Dennison Building in the U-M Church Street structure. There is a $2.00 parking charge implemented by U-M Parking Services.
