Giacomo Coslovich ""Disclosing the ultra-fast dynamics of competing phases in high-temperature superconductors by broadband time-resolved optical spec

Mon, Feb 7, 2011, 1:15 pm to 6:00 pm
Abstract: Understanding the interplay between the phases present in a high-temperature superconductor (superconducting, pseudogap, strange metal and Fermi-liquid-like) is the key-concept for shining light on the nature of the superconductivity mechanisms in copper-oxide based superconductors.

Kamran Behnia, "Phase diagram of Bismuth in the extreme quantum limit"

Mon, Jan 31, 2011, 1:30 pm to 6:00 pm
Abstract: A rare opportunity to explore the fate of a three-dimensional gas of highly mobile electrons confined to their lowest Landau levels is provided by elemental semi-metals. Coulomb interaction, neglected in the band picture, is expected to become significant in this extreme quantum limit, with poorly understood consequences.

Title: Strongly correlated photons in coupled cavity/circuit QED systems Abstract: Motivated by the recent success of engineering strong light-matter interaction in various cavity/circuit QED architectures, there has been a surge of interest in realizing condensed matter-like systems with photonic systems.

Woowon Kang from the University of Chicago- "Experimental Study of Non-Abelian Statistics in the Fractional Quantum Hall Effect"

Mon, Nov 22, 2010, 1:15 pm to 6:00 pm
Topological phases of matter, apart from being a fundamental phenomenon in quantum physics, has a potential application in fault tolerant quantum computation. The fractional quantum Hall effect to date is the most clearly established example of a topological phase. Topological phases are notable for possessing exotic particles as elementary...

Condensed Matter Seminar "Metallic conduction and superconductivity in the t-J model: Evolution of the spin states from half filling"

Wed, Aug 11, 2010, 11:00 am to 6:00 pm
Abstract: Many believe, following Anderson, that the origin of the unusual behavior of cuprate superconductors is related to the physics of the undoped phase. However, this connection has not been established theoretically. I will discuss the properties of a renormalized Hamiltonian derived recently from the t-J model, which is

Andreas Wallraff, "Measuring the correlations of a Microwave Frequency Single Photon source"

Wed, Jun 16, 2010, 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm

ABSTRACT: Circuit quantum electrodynamics (QED) allows for excellent control and measurement of the quantum mechanical properties of qubits, photons and their interactions. As a result, circuit QED is an ideal test bed to investigate the quantum nature of light.
