Welcome to a Göteborg Mesoscopic Lecture with Professor Supriyo Datta
Coffee will be served from 15.00
Mesoscopic physics is generally regarded as a specialized topic dealing only with small conductors. I would like to argue that it goes beyond that: It leads to a new perspective on the general problem of transport that should be a part of undergraduate textbooks. Specifically, I will show how a mesoscopically inspired approach provides a transparent view of (1) conductivity, (2) thermoelectricity, (3) microscopic origin of resistance and (4) spin-charge conversion in materials with spin-momentum locking.

Prof. Supriyo Datta will visit Gothenburg 25-27 November and will also give another lecture on p-Bit: Between a Bit and a q-Bit, 25 November at 15.00 in Kollektorn.
Supriyo Datta is known for pioneering an approach to quantum transport which has been widely adopted in the field of nanoelectronics. He is also known for innovative theoretical proposals that have inspired new fields of research including molecular thermoelectricity, negative capacitance devices, and spintronics.
The Göteborg Mesoscopic Lectures are sponsored by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences through its Nobel Institute of Physics.
