Physics Chat

The Physics Chat meeting series is intended to provide a common platform for discussions and presentations of recent developments within the condensed matter and photonics group, and is a forum for all members of the groups, from project students to group leaders.

The meeting is held fortnightly on Fridays at 15:00. It lasts typically 1 hour, with a presentation of 15-45 minutes.

Cuurently, the virtual venue is on Zoom and the meeting ID is: 825 1381 7850, password is: 322173, link:https://cardiff.zoom.us/j/82513817850?pwd=NU5HUkpHN1d3U2VoVmRaWDF4M1hMZz09

CMP principal investigators have been grouped in groups of 2 in order to arrange the rotation. The sequence is listed below. The post-docs and students belonging to the groups indicated that particular week will organise who will speak from each group. It is the responsibility of the groups (students and postdocs) to come up with a title and email it to Dr Bo Hou ahead of time!!. The groups are:
