April

| Event Location: Hennings 202 (6224 Agricultural Road, Vancouver, BC V6T 1Z1) | Speaker: Writer/astrophysicist Elizabeth Tasker & young adult (YA) novelist Ria Voros

Related Upcoming Events:

Ria and Elizabeth seem to be authors of a very different type: Ria is a YA (Young Adult) novelist, while Elizabeth is an astrophysicist who writes popular science. The first part of this talk will tackle a crucial question: why are they presenting together? The two authors will discuss how they came to work together unexpectedly through Ria’s novel. Ria will then explain the process and research for her novel, The Centre of the Universe, and how the use of space metaphors help explain relationships between the characters.

Abstract:  We use intense vector beams to generate high harmonics or to create solenoidal currents in solids or gases.  We create circularly polarized harmonics and we predict THz magnetic fields reaching the scale that is only available at user facilities.
