Physics Department Colloquium
Liquid Metal Dynamos : GEO/Astrophysics in the Lab
Time: 3:30 pm
Place: 2241 Chamberlin Hall (coffee at 4:30 pm)
Speaker: Jean-François Pinton, École normale supérieure de Lyon, CNRS
Abstract: The dynamo, a conversion of kinetic energy into magnetic energy in planets and stars is a fascinating puzzle, full of surprises. I will review some progress (and many more questions!) after over 15 years of lab experiments using liquid metals.
