The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign campus Research Board established this lecture series in 1982 to reflect the character and career of Arnold O. Beckman. Dr. Beckman’s career provides notable examples of the process by which fundamental discovery is translated into products for general societal use. The series is designed to emphasize the benefits of basic research as reflected in the development of new technology and in the general economic benefit to society.
J. C. Seamus Davis, Cornell University and Brookhaven National Laboratory, will give this year’s Beckman Lecture, Visualizing Quantum Matter, on Monday, May 4 starting at 4:30, Ballroom, Alice Campbell Alumni Center.
