Unfortunately, seminars are cancelled for the remainder of the semester until further notice, due to COVID-19.
NEWS: The CQM Distinguished Lecture series has been established in the Fall of 2015 to bring to Stony Brook University the renown experts in the physics of quantum matter.
The lectures in this series will attract a broad audience of physicists from SBU and BNL,
and SBU graduate students.
