Mon, Jan 29, 2018 (All day)

Dicke Candidate Seminar | William Terrano | "Exploring New Physics with Fermionic Spins" | Jadwin A09

Wed, Jan 10, 2018, 2:00 pm

Abstract:   Precision measurements of large, coherent ensembles of aligned fermionic spins are powerful probes of many fundamental physics question, such as tests of Lorentz violation, one of the pillars of general relativity; searches for new sources of CP-violation to explain the baryon asymmetry of the universe; and probes of high energy...

Dicke Candidate Seminar | Zurab Guguchia | "Probing the superconducting and magnetic properties of strongly correlated and topologically non-trivial materials" | Jadwin 303

Mon, Jan 8, 2018, 4:00 pm

In this talk a selection of some results of the hydrostatic pressure and impurity effects on structural, magnetic
and superconducting properties in the stripe phase of La214 cuprates [1] and in the Weyl semimetal phase of
MoTe2 [2] will be presented.

Speaker(s):

Dicke Fellowship candidate seminar: Xiaomeng Liu, Harvard; "Exciton condensation in graphene double-layer heterostructure"

Mon, Jan 8, 2018, 1:30 pm

Excitons are electron-hole pairs bound by the Coulomb attraction, which can form Bose-Einstein condensates at low temperatures. By placing electrons and holes in spatially separated layers, a double-layer electronic system prevents electron-hole recombination and enables exciton condensation in equilibrium.

Audience: Free and open to the public
Speaker(s):

Dicke Candidate Seminar | Claudio Savarese | "A Novel Light Detector for DarkSide-20K" | Jadwin A09

Wed, Dec 13, 2017, 2:30 pm

Abstract:  The DarkSide collaboration aims for a dark matter direct detection using Argon-based dual-phase Time
Projection Chambers (TPCs), capable of observing both the scintillation and the ionization signals of
recoiling nuclei. The DarkSide “zero-background” strategy exploits the pulse shape discrimination
