School of Physics Colloquia

Monday 23 October

Dr Paul Butler, Carnegie Institution for Science
Precision Velocities, Extrasolar Planets, and Stellar Seismology

We have been developing precision velocity systems for the past 30 years. We have improved precision from 300 m/s to 1 m/s. This has resulted in the discovery of most of the nearby planetary systems, and the initial stellar seismology detections.

11.00am, Slade Lecture Theatre, Physics Building A28

Cake and coffee are served at all School Colloquia.
