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 We ask that requests for accommodations be made as soon as possible.
