Revealing the Dirac fluid in graphene

Friday, April 1, 2016
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Location: East Bridge 114

Abstract: Although the electrons in metals are interacting,  it has been notoriously hard to discover evidence for hydrodynamics in electron fluids.    In the first half of the talk, I will review what hydrodynamics is, why it is interesting and why it is so hard to see in metals.   In the second half, I will discuss the theoretical and experimental developments which enabled us to observe signatures of 'relativistic' hydrodynamics in a strongly-interacting Dirac fluid in charge neutral graphene.
