Physics colloquium draws big name to UTK

Peng Xiong, a physics professor at Florida State University, visited Knoxville for the first time and was the first speaker in a semester-long colloquium series created by the Physics Department. Xiong spoke to the community about his research in superconductivity, specifically talking about lead as a superconductor. Student Ryan Raul was excited to attend the lecture because his major lines up with Xiong’s research.
The series will continue Sept. 22 with guest speaker Randy Fishman.
