“Today’s Gadgets and Tomorrow’s Energy: John Bardeen’s Nobel Prizes”
Presenter: Professor Daniel Agterberg, Professor of Physics, UW-Milwaukee.
Through interactive demonstrations and examples, Professor Agterberg will unravel the ideas that lead to John Bardeen’s remarkable discoveries for which he won two Nobel Prizes: the transistor and the explanation of superconductivity. The first created the modern day electronics of your cell phone, computer and more; the second is poised to change the energy industry.
Host: Mark Mueller.
