Special topology in electronic structures leads to unconventional solid state materials. One example is a topological insulator with the insulating bulk and conductive surfaces. We will discuss how electrons move together to shake samples periodically under external magnetic fields.
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 parking structure. There is a $2.00 parking charge implemented by U-M Parking Services.
