Getting Here

Kenneth Kelton, professor of physics, will present a Saturday Science Lecture.

The development of materials has always gone hand-in-hand with advances in civilization. Metals and glasses have been the dominant materials over the ages; only within the relatively recent past have plastics and semiconductors taken on significant roles. Over a period of thousands of years, by a process of trial and error, humankind learned how to produce superior materials by different types of processing.
