Spring 2022 Condensed Matter Seminar Schedule

Monday, January 24, 2022 to Monday, May 2, 2022

2:30 - 3:30 pm - Location:  3 Physics North, UCB Campus

* Students/Postdocs Only:  We encourage you to stay for another 30 minutes after the talk for a Q&A discussion with the speaker

During the academic year, the Physics Department hosts a series of Condensed Matter Seminars presented by accomplished physicists from all over the world. Please join us on the Mondays at 2:30 pm listed below for an inside look at physics. All lectures will be both in-person and via Zoom, and are free and open to the public. 

PLEASE NOTE: Zoom links will be posted on the day of each event.
