Measuring Lightspeed, a History: How Einstein Abolished the Aether

Apr 18, 2019 4:00pm | Event
Bateman Physical Sciences Center, F Wing 101

John Spence, PhD, Regents Professor, Physics Department, Associated Faculty, Biodesign Center for Applied Structural Discovery From the ancient Greeks, through Roemer, Bradley, Fermat, Fresnel, Maxwell, Fizzeau, Foucault, Lorentz, Hertz, Michelson and Einstein, the measurement of the speed of light and the search for the Aether to provide an absolute frame of reference has been one of mankind's greatest intellectual adventures. It has had the most profound consequences (e.g., E=mc2) and...

Natural vs. Artificial Photosynthesis? Metabolic & Efficiency Limits of Biomass vs. Solar Fuels

Apr 24, 2019 10:30am | Event
Biodesign Institute, AL1-10/14

G. Charles Dismukes, PhD, Professor, Rutgers Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, Researcher, Waksman Institute and the Biochemistry and Microbiology Department, Rutgers University, New Jersey Can we create a Usain Bolt of photosynthesis and harness it for agriculture? Universal rules govern the efficiency of metabolic processes among all organisms in the tree-of-life, including natural photosynthesis. The latter efficiency is very low, below 1% solar to biomass conversion. This...
