LIGHT Illuminated (courtesy: THEMUSEUM)

Celebrating light and light-based technologies

LIGHT Illuminated celebrates the United Nation's International Year of Light. In this interactive exhibition at THEMUSEUM you can learn about the value and importance of light-based technologies by exploring a black-light room, playing with colour mixing stations, and trying to get through a laser maze.

>> learn more about the development team behind the exhibit

Monday, February 1, 2016 — 10:30 to 11:30 AM to 11:30 AM EST

Pierre-Nicholas Roy, UW Chemistry

Quantum Molecular Dynamics

We will describe how the motions of atoms and molecules can be understood and even predicted based on quantum mechanical laws. Examples such as the behaviour of confined molecules and nano-scale superfluid will be used to illustrate some essential concepts. We will also present computational algorithms along with software tools used in the simulation of the quantum dynamics of molecular motion.

Wednesday, February 3, 2016 — 11:30 to 12:30 AM to 12:30 PM EST

Sandrine Codis (CITA)

Large-scale structure in the large-deviation regime

Monday, February 8, 2016 — 10:30 to 11:30 AM to 11:30 AM EST

James Taylor, UW Physics

The Mechanics of the Invisible Universe

I'll talk about cosmological structure, the stuff that holds the visible universe of stars and galaxies together - what we know about it, and how we think it works.

Wednesday, February 17, 2016 — 11:30 to 12:30 AM to 12:30 PM EST

Allison Noble (Toronto)

Dissecting z~1 Galaxy Clusters: Studying Star Formation from the Outskirts to the Core

Monday, February 22, 2016 — 10:30 to 11:30 AM to 11:30 AM EST

Ivan Sergienko
Director, Data Science & Analytics, Scotiabank

New Age of Science. A Banker’s Perspective

Wednesday, February 24, 2016 — 7:00 PM EST

Join us for an evening of Light at THEMUSEUM!

This is your opportunity to see the"Light Illuminated" exhibit put together by several of our Waterloo graduate students, and to hear a lecture from Prof. Melanie Campbell.

Dr. Scott Menary

CAP speaker Scott Menary

Would an Anti-apple Fall Up?

The strength and sign of the gravitational interaction between matter and antimatter (so-called "antigravity") is still an open experimental question. I will discuss some arguments and measurements which shed light on the issue. Finally, I will describe planned antigravity experiments involving antihydrogen with an emphasis on the ALPHA experiment at CERN.
