Meeting of the Princeton ACS Section & Summer “Picnic”, Monday, June 18, 2018
Leslie Schoop, PhD, Assistant Professor of Chemistry, Princeton University, will speak on “New Quantum Materials”
Frick Chemistry Laboratory, Princeton University, Networking 5:30 pm; Lecture 6:30 pm; Dinner 7:30 pm
Abstract: Quantum materials, which are material where the electronic properties don’t follow the expected guidelines, have been sparking enormous interest in the field of condensed matter physics for decade. Especially topological materials have opened a very intensively studied research year in the last decade. In this talk, I will argue that the rules and laws we know from inorganic chemistry are extremely useful to find and design new quantum materials. As chemists we have an on often underestimated predictive power of exotic physical properties. I will introduce how we can bridge the langue gap between chemistry and physics and how chemists can make an impact in the field of condensed matter physics.
Biography: Dr. Schoop received her Diploma in Chemistry from Johannes Gutenberg University (2010) and PhD in Chemistry from Princeton University (2014). She then went on to work under Professor Bettina Lotsch for her postdoctoral work at the Max Plank Institute for Solid State Research (2015-2017). Dr. Schoop joined the Princeton University Department of Chemistry Faculty in 2017. The Schoop Lab is working on the interface between chemistry and physics, using chemical principles to find new materials with exotic physical properties.
Reservations: The meeting will be held in Frick Laboratory, Princeton University. The social mixer will begin at 5:30 pm in the CaFe area of Taylor Commons. The lecture will be held in the Auditorium at 6:30 pm followed by dinner in Taylor Commons (CaFe area) at 7:30 pm. Frick Laboratory is located at the east end of the pedestrian bridge on Washington Rd, adjacent to the Weaver Track and Field Stadium. Parking is available in Lot 21, corner of Faculty Road and Fitzrandolph Road or other lots along Ivy Lane (see http://m.princeton.edu/map/). The seminar is free and open to the public. Reservations are required for dinner, which is $20 ($10 for students). Please contact Louise Lawter at email@example.com or 215-428-1475 by June 14 to make reservations. Reservations must be canceled no later than June 16 to avoid being billed for the dinner.
