Why is the world’s transition to renewable energy moving so quickly?
Professor Peter B Littlewood will give an illustrated lecture on why the world’s transition to renewable energy is moving so quickly. The lecture will be followed by a question and answer session.
Professor Littlewood is Professor of Physics at the University of Chicago. He was previously Director of Argonne National Laboratory, USA, and before that a Professor of Physics at the University of Cambridge and Head of the Cavendish Laboratory. He is the Founding Executive Chair of the Faraday Institution, the UK’s independent centre for electrochemical energy storage science and technology, supporting research, training and analysis.
Professor Littlewood holds six patents, has published more than 250 articles in scientific journals, and has given more than 300 invited talks at international conferences, universities and laboratories.
His research interests include superconductivity and superfluids, strongly correlated electronic materials, collective dynamics of glasses, density waves in solids, neuroscience and applications of materials for energy and sustainability.
This is one of the lectures in the on-going China Centre Seminar series, hosted by the China Centre, Jesus College. The lectures, given by eminent speakers, will cover a broad range of topics and disciplines.
Attendance is free and booking is not required.
