David Awschalom to give Cornell's 2014 Hans Bethe Lecture Series

David Awschalom will present three lectures on spintronics as the 2014 Hans Bethe lecturer. In 1982 Awschalom received his Ph.D from Cornell in experimental physics and he is currently the Liew Family Professor in Molecular Engineering at the University of Chicago. As one of the world leaders in spintronics, Awschalom will be presenting research and engineering applications of this emerging field at a series of talks the week of April 7. More on Awschalom's background can be found in the Chronicle.
