Physics & Astronomy Seminar: On the Formation of AM CVn Stars

Nicolls 315

Joshua Aiken, Dept. of Physics & Astronomy Bishop’s University AM CVn stars are a type of ultra-short period binary system (with orbital periods as low as 5 minutes) with a white dwarf accreting helium from a hydrogen-depleted donor star.

Research Talk: Plurilingual Integrated Teaching and Learning: Promoting Transversal Language Competence for Critical Learning

Nicolls 109

Dr. Sunny Man Chu Lau, Bishop's University Plurilingualism, derived from a sociolinguistic perspective, highlights the interconnections and mutual influence among languages and cultures (Piccardo, 2013). It challenges a static, compartmentalized view of language and disrupts the traditional deficit-oriented view of additional language (AL) learners who are often defined by their lack of target language competency, … Continue reading Research Talk: Plurilingual Integrated Teaching and Learning: Promoting Transversal Language Competence for Critical Learning

Physics & Astronomy Seminar: The Arecibo PALFA survey and the observed population of millisecond pulsars

Johnson 120

Emilie Parent, Department of Physics & MSI McGill University Over the past five decades, pulsar astrophysics has greatly impacted a variety of fields in fundamental physics, from testing theories of gravity to investigating the equation-of-state of matter at supra-nuclear densities. Radio surveys for pulsars and fast transients have been the most effective mean of discovering … Continue reading Physics & Astronomy Seminar: The Arecibo PALFA survey and the observed population of millisecond pulsars

Physics & Astronomy Seminar: On the influence of Gravity on the Quantum Hall Effect

Nicolls 315

Kaleb Mathieu, Dept. of Physics & Astronomy Bishop’s University The Quantum Hall Effect(QHE) is the quantum-mechanical version of a classical effect known as the Hall Effect. This effect creates a voltage difference across an electrical conductor, transverse to an applied electric field in the conductor and an applied magnetic field. This voltage difference causes a … Continue reading Physics & Astronomy Seminar: On the influence of Gravity on the Quantum Hall Effect
