Centre for Materials Physics

Seminars, Meetings and Other Events

CMP hosts regular seminars from visiting academics, spanning the wide range of active research that exists in the field of Condensed Matter Physics. Members of the section also meet fortnightly during term time for Intergroup Meetings, for presentations by colleagues which are accessible to those in different areas of Condensed Matter research.

There are no seminars for the dates selected.

Sir Gareth Roberts Lecture

CMP organises an annual public lecture series which is a tribute to the life and work of Professor Sir Gareth Roberts FRS FREng (1940–2007), Professor of Applied Physics at the University of Durham between 1976 and 1985. More on Sir Gareth can be found here. Further details of the Sir Gareth Roberts Lecture series (past and upcoming) are available here.

Other seminars

Members of the Centre for Materials Physics attend seminars in other departments and institutes including the Durham Energy Institute, the Biophysical Sciences Institute, Physics, Chemistry and Engineering. Typically one might expect half the audience in any seminar to be from the host centre or department.
