Tuesday April 30: Physics Spring Seminar Series Tuesday, April 30 12:10 CNS 204

Please Join us for a Talk Entitled: Let's Twist Again: Coupling Large Optical Angular Momentum to a Small Torsional Oscillator. With Mishkatul Bhattacharya of RIT

Angular momentum is responsible for several striking and counter-intuitive phenomena in physics, including toys such as the tippe-top and the rattleback. Recently, it has been found that optical beams can carry more angular momentum than realized previously. In this talk, I will describe our recent proposal to use optical angular momentum to spin nanomechanical rotors. An application to rotational sensing will be briefly discussed.

Pizza and Refreshments will be available for $1. Please bring your own cup. Remember to Recycle, Reuse, Reduce.

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