Special Seminar

Special Seminar - Quantum simulation using cold atoms and a “brighter” future - Chen-Lung Hung, Caltech

Tue, Feb 4, 2014, 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm
Advances of quantum control in atomic and optical physics have made it possible to study intriguing phenomena originally discussed in condensed matter, nuclear, and gravitational physics. In quantum gas experiments, new insights are derived from out-of-equilibrium dynamics of novel quantum many-body phases.

Quantum Sciences Seminar Series - Yuimaru Kubo, CEA-Saclay – “Hybrid Quantum Circuit with a Superconducting Qubit and an Electron Spin Ensemble”

Wed, Dec 11, 2013, 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm

We report the experimental realization of a hybrid quantum circuit combining a superconducting qubit and an ensemble of electronic spins (Fig. a). The qubit, of the transmon type, is coherently coupled to the spin ensemble consisting of nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers in a diamond crystal via a frequency-tunable superconducting resonator acting...

Quantum Sciences Seminar - Christopher Eichler, ETH Zurich - "Exploring quantum microwave radiation emitted from superconducting electronic circuits."

Tue, Dec 10, 2013, 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm

Superconducting electronic circuits have turned into one of the prime physical systems to investigate quantum optical and atomic physics phenomena in engineered solid state devices.

Special Seminar - Lisa Randall - Professor, Harvard University

Tue, Nov 12, 2013, 2:00 pm to Wed, Nov 6, 2013, 3:00 pm

Special Seminar - Double Disk Dark Matter - Lisa Randall - Professor, Harvard University

Special Seminar: Conservation laws for the wave equation on null hypersurfaces - Stefanos Aretakis

From building blocks to large galaxies: Towards understanding the formation of the Milky Way - Anna Frebel, MIT- Special Seminar

Fri, Sep 27, 2013, 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm
Abstract: The early chemical evolution of the Galaxy and the Universe is vital to our understanding of a host of astrophysical phenomena. Since the oldest, most metal-poor stars are relics from the high-redshift universe; they probe the chemical and dynamical conditions of a time when large galaxies first began to assemble.

Special Seminar - Gene-Wei Li (UCSF)

"Principles underlying cellular protein production"
Audience: LSI, MOL, Biophysics.

Special Seminar:Solving the Relativistic Inverse Stellar Structure Problem - Lee Lindblom, Theoretical Astrophysics, Caltech

Wed, Aug 14, 2013, 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm
Abstract: The inverse stellar structure problem determines the equation of state of the stellar matter from a knowledge of the stars' observable macroscopic properties, like their masses and radii. This seminar will discuss different approaches to solving this problem, including some new results based on spectral methods.

Results of a Dark Matter Search with the Silicon Detectors of the CDMS II Experment - Enectali Figueroa-Feliciano, MIT

From molecules to development: revealing simple rules of biological clocks - Qiong Yang, Stanford University

Tue, Mar 26, 2013, 1:30 pm to 6:00 pm
Organisms from cyanobacteria through vertebrates make use of biochemical and genetic oscillators to drive repetitive processes like cell cycle progression and vertebrate somitogenesis. Oscillators also allow organisms to anticipate natural environmental rhythms, as exemplified by the circadian clock.

Harnessing the Atom-like Properties of Single Spins in Diamond - Lee C. Bassett, Center for Spintronics and Quantum Computation, University of Califor

Mon, Mar 25, 2013, 12:15 pm to 1:15 pm
The past decade has seen remarkable progress in the isolation and control of single spins in solid state devices. With electron spin coherence times in some materials now measured in seconds, single spins provide many features formerly unique to atomic systems in a form amenable to engineering complex integrated devices through semiconductor...

Thu, Dec 13, 2012, 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm
The role of molecular spectroscopy in the broader interests of physics has evolved over the years. It was traditionally the study of molecular structure and its underlying quantum mechanics.

Condensed Matter Physics with Ultracold Atoms: from Mott Insulators to Topological Superfluids - Waseem Bakr - MIT

Mon, Dec 10, 2012, 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm
Abstract: Recent advances in probing and controlling ultracold atomic gases have allowed access to rich physics from the realm of condensed matter. In the first part of this talk, I will describe quantum gas microscopy, a new tool for imaging and manipulating strongly interacting quantum gases containing thousands of atoms at the single atom level.
