Science on Tap - Attracted to magnets

The event starts at 5:30 p.m., October 19 at the UnQuarked Wine Room, Los Alamos
This event is open to those of all ages.

Ross McDonald, with the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory’s Pulsed Field Facility at Los Alamos, will talk about the motivation for using high magnetic fields for materials research. With applications ranging from trying to understand high temperature superconductivity to learning fundamental information about metals, he’ll cover the challenges and advantages of working with these incredibly strong fields. He may even bring a demonstration or two to play with.

Join us Thursday, October 19, at 5:30 p.m. at the UnQuarked Wine Room in Los Alamos.

Science on tap

Science on Tap is a convivial opportunity to engage with Lab scientists on their current projects. A brief presentation is followed by lively questions, answers, and discussion. The fun takes place on the third Thursday of each month from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the UnQuarked Wine Room at 145 Central Park Plaza in Los Alamos.

The sessions are a joint project between the Bradbury Science Museum and the Los Alamos Creative District.
