Flight Investigator Describes Objectives at Home and Abroad

David Goodstein of Caltech, a flight investigator in the Fundamental Physics program, has presented the objectives of his experiment at two recent invited talks. His CQ experiment studies how a heat current changes properties of liquid helium near a phase transition called the lambda transition. He traveled a third of the way around the world to present an invited talk at the Quantum Fluids and Solids Conference in Germany, "The CQ Experiment:Enhanced Heat Capacity of Superfluid Helium in a Heat Flux". Back at Caltech, he talked about "A dynamic new look at the lambda transition" at the weekly Caltech Physics Colloquium in Pasadena.
