March 4 @ 11:00 am - 8:00 pm
North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University Dean’s Distinguished Lecture Series
Dr Stephen Leone, National Academy of Sciences Member
“Exploring New Frontiers”
Student Session: 11 a.m.-12 p.m. EST
Seminar: 2-2:50 p.m. EST
Interactive Session with Faculty and Researchers: 3-4 p.m.
Stephen Leone is the John R. Thomas Endowed Chair in Physical Chemistry, Professor of Chemistry and Physics at the University of California, Berkeley, and faculty investigator, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. His research interests are ultrafast and attosecond laser investigations of atomic, molecular, and solid state dynamics in the XUV and X-ray. His group developed XUV transient absorption and extended the methodology to attosecond transient reflectivity, attosecond transient diffraction, and attosecond four-wave mixing. His laboratories explore electronic and vibrational superpositions, curve crossing dynamics and conical intersections, ring opening processes, photofragmentation, and singlet-to-triplet transitions, semiconductor band gap physics, polaron formation, charge transfer processes in solids, charge migration across junctions, and phase changes in materials.
His honors include the American Chemical Society Award in Pure Chemistry, the Herbert P. Broida Prize of the American Physical Society, the Bourke Medal of the Faraday Division of the Royal Society of Chemistry,the American Chemical Society Peter Debye Award, the Polanyi Medal of the Gas Kinetics Division of the Royal Society of Chemistry, the Irving Langmuir Prize in Chemical Physics of the American Physical Society, the Ahmed Zewail Award of the American Chemical Society, and an Honorary Doctorate from the-University of Warwick. He is a member of National Academy of Sciences and Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
