Physics Nobel Laureate Sir Anthony J. Leggett will visit the UCF campus and present a lecture Oct. 9

Dear Students and Faculty:

The Department of Physics is pleased to announce the visit of Physics Nobel Laureate Sir Anthony J. Leggett  to our campus on Friday, October 9th, 2009.  As part of the activities we will have an informal lunch for all graduate and interested undergraduate physics majors in MAP 318 starting at 11:30 am.  Followed by a Public Lecture presentation at 2:30 pm in the College of Science building (CSB 101) and a Colloquium presentation at 4:30 pm in Math and Physics bldg (MAP 260). 

About the Speaker,

Sir Anthony J. Leggett, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Professor and Center for Advanced Study Professor of Physics, has been a faculty member at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign since 1983.  He is widely recognized as a world leader in the theory of low-temperature physics, and his pioneering work on superfluidity was recognized by the 2003 Nobel Prize in Physics.  He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the American Philosophical Society, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the Russian Academy of Sciences (foreign member), and is a Fellow of the Royal Society (U.K.), the American Physical Society, and the American Institute of Physics.  He is an Honorary Fellow of the Institute of Physics (U.K.).  He was knighted (KBE) by Queen Elizabeth II in 2004 "for services to physics."  Professor Leggett has shaped the theoretical understanding of normal and superfluid helium liquids and other strongly coupled superfluids.  He set directions for research in the quantum physics of macroscopic dissipative systems and use of condensed systems to test the foundations of quantum mechanics.

Distinguished Speaker Special Events;

11:30 - 12:30 pm:

Lunch with Physics Graduate/Undergrad Students (located in MAP 318)
