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.

Matthias Kaschube (Princeton)-Contractile forces driving embryonic development

Quantum Information with Atoms and Light- Given by Steven Olmschenk

Fri, Feb 4, 2011, 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm
Abstract: Rapid progress in coherent control of single trapped atomic ions and ensembles of ultracold atoms in optical lattices has enabled more precise atomic physics measurements, a probe of fundamental quantum

Special Seminar - Itay Yavin - "Very Weak Interactions"

Tue, Feb 1, 2011, 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Abstract: What lies beyond the Standard Model of particle physics? Are there very weakly interacting forms of matter and forces waiting to be discovered? In this talk I will describe some of the efforts underway to detect very weakly interacting particles, from dark matter to new forces.

Dr. Benjamin Lev - Exploring Strongly Correlated Matter with Exotic Atoms, Atom Chips, and Cavity QED

Tue, Feb 1, 2011, 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm
Advances in the quantum manipulation of ultracold atomic gases are opening a new frontier in the quest to better understand strongly correlated matter.

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.

Speaker: Dong Sheng Title: Progress on the measurement of the francium anapole moment

David Weld - Thermometry and Cooling with Ultracold Spin Mixtures in Optical Lattices

Wed, Jan 19, 2011, 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm
Abstract: Ultracold atoms in optical lattices are expected to exhibit correlated magnetic quantum phases, but only below a Curie or Néel temperature which is typically less than 1 nanoKelvin. Realization and measurement of this low temperature is the most challenging obstacle on the path towards observation of quantum magnetism in lattice-trapped...

Mathieu Lewin (Universite de Cergy-Pointoise) "Geometric methods for nonlinear quantum many-body systems"

Tue, Dec 14, 2010, 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm
Geometric techniques have played an important role in the seventies, for the study of the spectrum of many-body Schrödinger operators. In this talk I will present a formalism which also allows to study nonlinear systems.

Seth Zenz- "Track Jets and their Applications: Soft QCD, Jet Quenching, and Beyond"

Tue, Dec 14, 2010, 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Jets produced in collisions at the CERN LHC can be reconstructed using the charged-particle tracks measured in the ATLAS Inner Detector. Jets are produced copiously at the LHC, and can be used to study the details of the strong interaction, the hot dense medium produced in heavy ion collisions, and new fundamental particles.
