A talk by Charles L. Kane
The Department of Physics in conjunction with the Distinguished Visitors Programs presents a talk by Charles L. Kane, Professor, University of Pennsylvania.
Charles Kane received an undergraduate degree in physics from the University of Chicago in 1985 and a Ph.D. in physics from MIT in 1989. After a two year post doc at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center he joined the faculty at the University of Pennsylvania, where he is currently Professor of Physics and Astronomy. Professor Kane is known for his theoretical work on the quantum Hall effect, Luttinger liquids and carbon nanotubes. Recently his research has focused on the theory of topological phenomena in insulators, superconductors and strongly correlated electronic materials.
