The Third Mário Schenberg Meeting of the Department of Mechanics and Materials Physics took place on December 11, 2013, at the Institute of Physics. In the event was honored the career of late Prof. José Roberto Leite, through participation and testimonials from former students and research collaborators, who shared his brilliant career. Emphasis was given to his academic activity, and to the key role played by Prof.
A new class of nonequilibrium phenomena is expected when a low-dimensional electron gas, subjected to a weak magnetic field, is also irradiated with microwaves. In a recent publication, an experimental work in the LNMS at DFMT-IFUSP provides evidence for an edge-state current stabilized by microwave irradiation.
“ Microwave-induced nonlocal transport in a two-dimensional electron system”
On April 25, the title of Professor Emeritus was conferred to Prof. Nei Fernandes de Oliveira Junior in the Engineering School of Lorena (EEL-USP).
The title is the highest honor that the academy grants for retired professors, who stood out for didactic and research activities or made an outstanding contribution to the progress of the University.
