SEMINAR: On a new field theory formulation and a space-time adjustment that predict the same precession of Mercury and the same bending of light as general relativity

January 29 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Abstract: This article introduces a new field theory formulation. The new field theory formulation recognizes vector continuity as a general principle and begins with a field that satisfies vector continuity equations. Next, independent of the new formulation, this article introduces a new space-time adjustment. Then, we solve the one-body gravitational problem by applying the space-time adjustment to the new field theory formulation. With the space-time adjustment, the new formulation predicts precisely the same precession of Mercury and the same bending…

SEMINAR: Mechanically-coupled Properties in Two-dimensional Van der Waals Materials

February 12 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Abstract: Many mechanical deformations, such as buckling, crumpling, wrinkling, collapsing, and delamination, are usually considered as threats to mechanical integrity and are avoided or reduced in the traditional design of materials and structures. My work goes against these conventions by tailoring such mechanical instabilities to create new functional morphologies. We use ultralow bending stiffness and semiconducting properties of atomically-thin van der Waals (vdW) materials to enable emerging mechanically-coupled properties and device-level multi-functionalities that extend beyond those of bulk material systems.…
