Prof. Ningyu Liu, Department of Physics, University of New Hampshire

Lightning discharges come with a variety of forms, and their intensity measured in terms of current or radiated radio power spans a wide range. This colloquium will be focused on discussing our recent research work on three classes of extreme lightning. The first class is cloud-to-ground lightning flashes of a very large peak current, a few times larger than the average value. High-speed optical images will be presented to show their complex temporal and spatial properties.

Abstract: 

Metamaterials are made of precisely fabricated constituents that are analogous to ‘atoms’ and ‘molecules’ in natural materials. These emerging class of metamaterials promise to fill the white space of material selection, giving enormous choice of unusual effective material parameters for different applications.

In a talk structured to encourage interspersed Q and A, I will discuss
the dissemination of your physics results that follows the lab, the
keyboard, and the desk. You communicate results through posters,
talks, and papers in a cascading sequence that entails interacting
with journal editors, referees, conference organizers, journalists,
department chairs, deans, funding agencies, and others. I will focus
on this post-research collaborative process in physics, now in a state
of flux in the age of social media and Google Scholar, primarily
