On to the weekend!
April 09, 2010
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!
