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.
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.
