Physical Chemistry: The Interplay of Light and Energy

About Physical Chemistry: The Interplay of Light and Energy

Come and join us in the ASCUS Lab for Physical Chemistry: The Interplay of Light and Energy, a hands-on workshop developed by Mareike Wallrabe, a German chemistry student and ASCUS Lab intern.

What happens to an object that is illuminated by an intense beam of light (laser)? Is the energy absorbed or reflected? Can you even see it with the naked eye? These and other questions are all part of the wider investigations currently being explored by Mareike at the Georg-August-University Göttingen, as part of her ongoing research into how materials are influenced by light energy. She has developed this workshop with us to share with you this fascinating world of physical chemistry.

A lot of physical chemistry is hidden to the naked eye and, perhaps surprisingly, exists everywhere in our daily lives. Come along to this workshop to join us on a journey as we uncover physical chemistry in action in the most unexpected objects, household items, foods, plants and even living things.

During this workshop you will get an introduction to common research techniques employed in physical chemistry in research labs today. Ever wanted to make your own secret ink using everyday materials? Want to know how to make crystals grow and form before you very own eyes? Get hands on exploring how to use food to produce energy and cabbage juice to visualise how we see colours! Join us for a jam-packed afternoon of experiments and we promise you’ll go away looking at light and energy in a whole new way!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Physical Chemistry: The Interplay of Light and Energy are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
