### Princeton Physics March Meeting 2020

In response to the cancelled APS March Meeting, postdocs and graduate students will be hosting a "virtual" **Princeton Physics March Meeting **this **Thursday, March 5, from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.** in PCTS seminar room 407.

### The quantum sounds of electrons and the quantum noise of spinons - Inti Sodemann - Max Planck

The problem of strongly interacting gapless fermions above one dimension is one of the wildest open frontiers in quantum condensed matter where our understanding remains insular and embedded in vast oceans of mystery.

### Real-space approach for topological states and a new principle of bulk-boundary correspondence - Zhida Song

Abstract: The real-space approach has been proved as a powerful method to study topological states: both the classification of topological states and that of their anomalous surfaces can be obtained in an intuitive, straightforward way. I will talk about new progress in topological materials which is inspired by, the real-space approach.

### Title: Many Body Effects of Chiral Edge Fermions - Biao Lian - Princeton

1+1D Chiral Fermions on the edges of 2+1D chiral topological phases are free from backscattering, which lead to quantized Hall and thermal Hall effects. Interacting chiral fermions at low energies are usually believed to form an integrable chiral Luttinger liquid. We study the integrability of N identical chiral Majorana fermion modes with...

### Dark Matter in the Era of Gaia - Lina Necib - Caltech

The Gaia mission has provided distance and velocity measurements of over a billion stars in the Milky Way, making it the largest stellar catalog at hand. Simultaneously, recent developments in cosmological simulations have made it possible to track stars and dark matter in realistic Milky Way-like galaxies.

### Title: Physics on Pointe - Merritt Moore - Taplin Auditorium

Abstract: Merritt Moore will discuss her journey as a physicist and professional ballet dancer.

### Vignettes in Physical Mathematics - Natalie Paquette - Joseph Henry Room

Abstract: Fundamental physics generates new mathematics. String theory and quantum field theory leverage exact and infrared dualities to provide equivalent descriptions of physical objects, some of which admit rigorous definitions; dual pairs of objects are sometimes even formalized using two a priori distinct areas of mathematics.

### Exploring synthetic quantum matter in superconducting circuits

Superconducting circuits have emerged as a competitive platform for quantum computation, satisfying the challenges of controllability, long coherence and strong interactions. Here we apply this toolbox to a different problem: the exploration of strongly correlated quantum materials made of microwave photons.

### Special Seminar, Nathan Lourie | Dicke Candidate "Sub-arcminute Galactic Polarimetry with the Next Generation Balloon-borne Large-Aperture Submillimeter Telescope (BLAST-TNG)"

### Special Seminar, Saptarshi Chaudhuri | Dicke Candidate "Quest for the QCD Axion: DM Radio and Fundamental Limits of Electromagnetic Detection"

The QCD axion, originally proposed as a solution to the strong CP problem, is also a well motivated dark-matter candidate. Recently, a number of experimental proposals have emerged to search for QCD axion dark matter over the entire allowed mass range (~1 peV-1 eV).

### Special Seminar- HEP Dicke Candidate-Yi Jia-MIT-"Precision Measurement of Elementary Particle and Nuclei Fluxes in Cosmic Rays with AMS on the International Space Station" (ISS)

The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) is a general purpose high energy particle detector which was installed on the International Space Station (ISS) on May 19, 2011 to conduct a unique long term mission of fundamental physics research in space.

### Measurement of the fine-structure constant as a test of the Standard Model - Richard Parker, Berkeley

Abstract: Measurements of the fine-structure constant alpha require methods from several subfields and are thus powerful tests of the consistency of theory and experiment in physics.
