It has been over 100 years since the discovery of the first superconductor, yet there are still some unsolved fundamental questions that reside in the nature of superconductivity. Unlocking the mystery of superconductivity is a voyage in the world of Condensed Matter Physics, and it would give rise to a technological revolution. This talk will cover the discovery of significant phenomena, milestones achievements in the development of theories (highlight BCS theory), innovative materials and corresponding applications.

The Observatory is open for public tours, usually on the first Wednesday of each month, offering a chance to look through the university's telescope. This will be preceded by a short talk on astronomy (around 30 minutes) plus an opportunity to ask questions, followed by a tour of the dome. In the event of bad weather, the observing will not be possible, but the talk and tour of facilities will go ahead.
Speaker: Liliana Caballero
