Beyond the posters

On to the weekend!

What a great end to the conference!  The thermoelectrics characterization session was very interesting although attendance was sparse.  Patrick Hopkins's talk on determining electron-phonon nonequilibrium was particularly outstanding.  We've seen a lot on electron-electron and phonon-phonon interactions, but he forays (experimentally!) into the super short timescale interaction between the two energy carriers.  Neat. 

I hope you all had a great time at the conference.  If you are sticking around for the weekend, there are a bunch of events going on.  The Giants baseball season started today, and there are games this weekend.  There's also a Sunday Streets event which is a great way to see part of the city.  You can also check out this previous blog post for other things to do in San Francisco. 

Have a great trip home!
