The first semester seminar held in the Department of Physics delivered by Dr. Rajeh Hussain

The scientific committee at the Department of Physics has organized the first students' seminar for the academic year 1437/1438 AH entitled: "Theoretical Understanding of the Exotic Secrets of Substance, 2016 Nobel Prize in Physics".                                                      

Dr. Rajeh Hussain, assistant professor in the Department of Physics, presented the seminar on Sunday 4 Dec 2016 in the morning from 11:25 until 12. The seminar included questions and discussions.                                               

Dr. Hussain started by giving an idea of the Nobel Prize in physics and the 2016 prize. There was a discussion about condensed matter especially topographic phase transformations, topographic phase matter, and phenomenology inherent.                                                                                                              

This seminar is one of a series of semimonthly seminars organized by the Scientific Committee in the Department of Physics and introduced by faculty members and other researchers, supervised by Dr. Ra'id Al-Hathlool, the head of the Scientific Committee, and organized by Dr. Jaber Al-Ghool, member of the Scientific Committee. It aims to promote a scientific atmosphere and to inform staff with the latest physics discoveries in all fields and new insights into the behavior of matter at low temperatures.                                       

It is worth mentioning that all university staff including faculty members, employees, and students are allowed to attend these seminars.

Abstract:

Nobel Prize in Physics for the year 2016 was awarded for three scientists' research in condensed matter physics, particularly for the work on topological phase transitions and topological phases of matter, phenomena underlying exotic states of matter such as superconductors, super fluids, and thin magnetic films. This work has given new insights into the behavior of matter at low temperatures, and has laid the foundations for the creation of new materials called topological insulators, which could allow the construction of more sophisticated quantum computers.
