Physics Department Fall Seminar Series

 

Please join us for: A Talk With Enrique Galvez of Colgate University

on Photons and Quantum Interference

The nature of light is one of the most challenging problems of modern physics. The wave and particle notions are clearly inadequate answers. Yet, for all of this uncertainty quantum mechanics predicts correctly what light should do without telling us what it "is." In this talk I will present how we use quantum interference to probe into this outstanding dilemma.

All seminars will be held in CNS 204 at 12:10 (unless otherwise indicated). Pizza and refreshments will be available for $1. Remember to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - Please bring your own cup.

Individuals with disabilities requiring accommodations should contact the Physics Department at jackerman@ithaca.edu. We ask that requests for accommodations be made as soon as possible.

Public Viewing night, Friday, November 12th from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

You are invited to join the Ithaca College Department of Physics for a Public Viewing of the night sky at the Clinton B. Ford Observatory on Friday, November 12th from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

Attending a Public Night
To attend a public night, just show up at the vehicle 'turn around' in front of the entrances of Smiddy Hall and CHS (F lot side).  A shuttle van will make regular runs to convey people up to the observatory and back down. There is no parking available at the observatory and the access road is NOT lighted, so please do not walk up.

Bad Weather Plan
The "go/no-go" decision for any public night will be made at 3:30 p.m. on the scheduled date. Our web page and the recorded message at the observatory will be updated shortly thereafter to reflect the decision for that evening. If you check our site or call the observatory at 274-3012 after about 4:00 p.m. (to give us time to post an update) you will get the final decision for that evening.
