After Dark: Gallium

galliumCome be in your elements with Exploratorium host and scientific raconteur Ron Hipschman. Follow tales of intrigue and invention, join in dynamic demonstrations, and uncover fascinating connections between individual elements and our collective human experience.

A soft metal that melts at temperatures above 86°F, gallium is mainly used in semiconductors and blue LEDs. Join Exploratorium host Ron Hipschman and U.C. Davis professor Srabanti Chowdhury to explore gallium’s reputation as the “silicon” of next generation electronics.

Speaker: Srabanti Chowdhury is Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of California, Davis. As a professor and a technology enthusiast, Chowdhury enjoys doing research and teaching students about new technologies and how they impact our world. And as a mom of a 5-year-old, she’s getting good at juggling, metaphorically speaking.
