CSP Lunch Seminar
Oct 17, 2017
Guest: Dr. Shan-Ho Tsai, University of Georgia
Tuesday, October 17, 2017 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Location: CSP Conference Room (322)
Oct 19, 2017
Guest: Professor Tina T. Salguero, Department of Chemistry, UGA
Thursday, October 19, 2017 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Location: Physics Auditorium (Rm 202)Metal chalcogenide materials have extraordinarily diverse structural and electronic properties. This talk will focus on our recent work with metal dichalcogenide and trichalcogenide compositions that exhibit metallic properties and charge density wave behavior, including TaSe2, TaSsub2, TaSe3, and NbS3. These materials can be exfoliated into nanosheets or nanoribbons, which can form the basis of nanostructured devices with special applications in the area of radiation-resilient electronics.
Observatory Open House
Oct 20, 2017
Guest: Dr. Robin Shelton, UGA Physics and Astronomy
Friday, October 20, 2017 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Location: UGA Observatory (4th floor Physics Building)
We will be having another public viewing on October 20, 2017. Because of the limited space in the dome, you must have a reservation to come to this showing. Click here to make a reservation.
The observatory is located at the top of the Physics building. To get to the observatory take the elevator to the 4th floor. A guide will meet you on the 4th floor and direct your group to the stairway that leads to the observatory. As the weather can be unpredictable, we might not know whether a viewing will be possible until shortly before the event begins.
If you need more information please call 706-542-2485.

Guest: Dr. Deirdre Shoemaker, Georgia Institute of Technology
Friday, October 27, 2017 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Location: Physics Auditorium (Rm 202)
The recent observation of gravitational waves by the LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory) consortium made news around the world and resulted in the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics being given for contributions to the LIGO detection. Dr. Shoemaker is an expert in the topic of gravitational waves and will be giving the public talk on this topic on October 27th. Her public talk is the kick-off event for the Georgia Regional Astronomers Meeting.
Gravitational Waves Detected! Merging Black Holes! Not only are these seemingly fantastical concepts making headlines, predicted by Einstein’s theory of gravity 100 years ago, these concepts are in reality important components of the Universe. I will give an introduction to both the theory of black holes and the evidence for their existence in the Universe. I will highlight their role in the recent discoveries of gravitational waves by LIGO and discuss some of the compelling qualities that intrigues students of all ages.

Friday, October 27, 2017 7:00 pm - Saturday, October 28 6:00 pm
Location: Georgia Center for Continuing EducationThe 16th meeting of the Georgia Regional Astronomers will take place at UGA. It will bring together professional astronomers, graduate and undergraduate students, educators, planetarium professionals, and amateur astronomers. This year, the Association of Lunar and Planetary Observers (ALPO) will be joining the Georgia Regional Astronomers Meeting (GRAM). Presentations will be given on a variety of topics, ranging from the Great American Eclipse of 2017 to gravitational waves. The kick-off event will be a public lecture on Friday night by Professor Deirdre Shoemaker of Georgia Tech. Following the presentations on Saturday, the ALPO Awards Dinner will take place at the Georgia Center for Continuing Education. Registration, agenda, and driving and parking directions for the GRAM are posted here: http://www.astronomy.gatech.edu/GRAM/2017/2017_meeting.php. Registration for the ALPO Awards Dinner is here: http://alpo-astronomy.org/.

Tuesday, October 31, 2017 9:00 am - Friday, November 3 5:00 pm
Location: CSP Conference Room (322)
The 2017 Annual AtomDB Workshop will be hosted this year at UGA by the Department of Physics and Astronomy and the Center for Simulational Physics. The Workshop, to be held Nov. 2-3, will bring together producers of atomic data, astrophysical modelers, and observers focused on X-ray astronomy. The workshop is preceded by working sessions (Oct. 31 - Nov. 1) in which users can learn about AtomDB, initiate collaborations with the AtomDB team, and provide input for future releases of AtomDB.
The workshop will bring together producers of atomic data, both theoretical and experimental, with the users of atomic data relevant to X-ray astronomy. The workshop aims to identify progress in the Lab Astro field which is directly relevant to X-ray astronomy, show how to use this data to observers, and to show the results of using the atomic physics to analyze astrophysical spectra.
Workweek: Oct. 31 and Nov. 1, training and collaboration meetings.
Workshop: Nov. 2 and Nov. 3, talks and posters.
Deadlines: Hotel reservation, Oct. 2; meeting registration, Oct. 17.
