Lecture

Celebrating Physics: A Series of Public Lectures

Title and speaker Date Time
The Fascinating World of Two-dimensional Materials
Speaker: Prof. Daniel Shu Ping Lau (Professor and Head, Department of Applied Physics, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University)
(English, supplemented by Cantonese)
7.1.2018 (Sunday) 2:30pm - 5:00pm

Curriculum Links:
S1-S3 Science “Matter as Particles” and “Materials of the Modern World”
S4-S6 Physics Elective Part “Atomic World”
S4-S6 Chemistry Elective Part “Materials Chemistry”

The discovery of graphene, an one-atom-thick carbon layer, has triggered tremendous interest in two-dimensional (2D) materials for scientists in chemistry, physics, materials science, and related areas. It is hard to imagine how an one-atom-thick material could possibly change the world! 2D materials have the potential to immensely advance everything from construction materials to electronics, energy and medicine. In this lecture, Prof. Lau will provide an overview of the development of 2D materials, with special highlights on the fascinating properties and applications.

Fun Science Experiments

Strange Matter
We are familiar with the term “Matter”. But what do we really know about it? What is it made of? Is there matter that can be solid and liquid? Through different experiments, we can learn the structure and properties of different matters, and learn to make “Strange Matter”.
