Last January, Department of Physics Professor Dirk Morr delivered a talk at the renowned Colloquium Ehrenfestii lecture series at the University of Leiden in the Netherlands. An invitation to present an Ehrenfest talk is one of the field’s highest honors. Past presenters include Albert Einstein and Max Planck. Professor Morr spoke on the subject of “The Ubiquity of Topology: From superconductors to heavy fermions.”
