Condensed Matter Seminar - "Interplay of correlations and topology in the narrow bands of twisted bilayer graphene" Oskar Vafek, Florida State University

Tue, Sep 21, 2021, 12:30 pm

I will present an overview of the current theoretical understanding of the remarkable phenomenology of the twisted bilayer graphene (TBG) near the magic angle.  This includes the early insights obtained using the 2D exponentially localized Wannier basis[1] which revealed a qualitative difference between the effect of the...

PGI Fall Seminar Series|Rita Teixeira da Costa|Princeton University|"The Teukolsky Equation on Kerr Black Hole Spacetimes"

Mon, Sep 20, 2021, 12:30 pm

Abstract:

The Teukolsky master equations describe the linear behavior of extremal perturbations of the Kerr black hole family.

Biophysics Seminar: Andrej Kosmrlj| Princeton University: Pattern formation in biological systems via mechanical instabilities and phase separation

Mon, Sep 20, 2021, 12:15 pm

Pattern formation is ubiquitous in biological systems. While pattern formations are often associated with Turing-like reaction-diffusion systems, biology also exploits many other mechanisms such as mechanical instabilities and phase separation.

Audience: A free lecture open to the public.

FPO - Preethi Pallegar - "Symmetries and Large N Limits of Majorana Fermion Models"

Fri, Aug 27, 2021, 3:00 pm

In this thesis, we study generalizations of well-known Majorana fermion models, including the SYK model and the Klebanov-Tarnopolsky tensor model. The models are compared at finite and large N, where we find that the models simplify considerably and can even become solvable.

FPO - Seong Woo Oh - "Cryogen-Free Scanning Probe Microscopy in Silicon Device Physics at milli-Kelvin temperatures"

Thu, Aug 26, 2021, 10:00 am

Spin qubits housed in silicon quantum dots are rapidly emerging as a viable quantum computing platform. In recent years, there have been single- and two-qubit gate demonstrations, which showed high fidelities to the extent that implementing quantum error correction codes appears to be within reach.

FPO - Ho Tat Lam - "On Symmetries, Anomalies and Their Generalizations"

Fri, Aug 20, 2021, 2:00 pm

This dissertation explores various generalizations of global symmetries and ’t Hooft anomalies. Chapter two is based on work with Po-Shen Hsin and Nathan Seiberg [1]. It is dedicated to the study of one-form global symmetries in three and four dimensions. We investigate their physical implications, classify their ’t Hooft anomalies and analyze...

FPO - Sarah Marie Bruno - "Focal Plane Development for Observations of the Cosmic Microwave Background with the Simons Observatory"

Thu, Aug 19, 2021, 1:00 pm

A promising avenue for studying the origin and evolution of the universe is to measure the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB), the thermal radiation remaining from the Big Bang after billions of years of expansion. Today, this remnant takes the form of an extraordinarily uniform thermal blackbody of ~2.7 K in temperature.

FPO - Fedor Popov - "New Developments in Vector, Matrix and Tensor Quantum Field Theories"

Tue, Jul 20, 2021, 11:00 am
This thesis is devoted to studies of quantum field theories with dynamical fields in the vector, matrix or tensor representations of O(N) symmetry groups. These models provide interesting classes of exactly solvable models that can be examined in detail and give insights into the properties of other, more complicated quantum field theories.
