Colloquiums and Public Lectures

pap-colloquium.jpg 

Colloquiums and Public Lectures are high-profile speaking events, delivered by world-renowned experts. Colloquiums are intended for an audience of non-expert scientists and students, while Public Lectures are intended for members of the general public who are interested in science. Over the years, the Division of Physics and Applied Physics has hosted a number of extremely eminent speakers, such as Professor F. D. M. Haldane (co-winner of the 2016 Nobel Prize in Physics), Professor Sir Michael Berry, and Professor Harald Fritzsch.
