ML4Q members explain the Nobel Prize in Chemistry and Physics


Two members of our cluster will be explaining this and next week the background of this year’s Nobel prize in Chemistry and Physics. Both talks will be held in German.

Within the “Die RWTH erklärt den Nobelpreis 2023” series, Christoph Stampfer will explain the Nobel Prize in Chemistry tomorrow, Wednesday, December 6, 2023, at 6:30 pm in lecture hall H06, Lecture Hall Center C.A.R.L. His talk is titled “Quantum dots: Building blocks of a world where quanta and everyday life meet” where he will be referring to the research of the Nobel Prize winners in chemistry Moungi Bawendi, Louis Brus and Alexei Ekimov. The researchers, who work in the USA, developed important foundations for nanotechnology in the 1980s and 1990s.

In Bonn, the Physikwerkstatt Rheinland invites to a public lecture on Wednesday, December 13, 7:00 pm in the Wolfgang-Paul-Hörsaal, Kreuzbergweg 28 in Bonn. This year’s Nobel Prize in Physics honors the pioneering work in the field of attosecond physics by Anne L’Huillier from Lund University, Pierre Agostini from Ohio State University and Ferenc Krausz from Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics. Michael Köhl will explain what attosecond physics and the work of the three Nobel Prize winners is all about.
