CMP Journal Club - Spring 2020

The Condensed Matter Physics Journal Club is a weekly meeting of Physicists to discuss research papers and related science. In addition, it serves multiple functions for our students, including expanding knowledge base, fostering critical thinking, and improving presentation skills. Reading the paper beforehand is generally the best way to utilize the time spent in the journal club.

Spring 2020 we are meeting 12:30-1:30PM, Thursdays, in LH105.
