Chai and Why?

Superconductors: Irresistible Electrons
Rajdeep Sensarma, TIFR

Sunday Feb. 5, 2017
11:00 am
Prithvi House

Copper is a good conductor of electricity, wood is a bad conductor; while really cold aluminium is a superconductor: it can sustain an electric current even when no voltage is applied. Why do these materials behave so differently? We will take you on a journey into the belly of the beast: how do electrons inside these materials give rise to electrical resistance and how does this resistance vanish in superconductors? About the speaker: Rajdeep Sensarma is a theoretical physicist working in the general area of condensed matter and statistical physics at TIFR.Why does your cell phone battery barely last a day? Even worse, why do the newest batteries get really hot, or even explode? What does the future hold for rechargeable batteries? Are there alternatives? This Chai and Why? session's going to get you all charged up with the latest from the world of batteries.
