Erez Lieberman-Aiden (Harvard)-How the Genome Folds

Mon, Feb 14, 2011, 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm
I describe Hi-C, a novel technology for probing the three-dimensional architecture of whole genomes by coupling proximity-based ligation with massively parallel sequencing. Working with collaborators at the Broad Institute and UMass Medical School, we used Hi-C to construct spatial proximity maps of the human genome at a resolution of 1Mb.

Ho-Ung Yee

Fri, Feb 11, 2011, 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm
Speaker: Ho-Ung Yee Title: Waves of chiral anomaly in quark-gluon plasma Abstract: We will discuss recent proposals of having effects coming from triangle anomalies of QCD in the plasma created in relativistic heavy ion collisions, such as chiral magnetic effect, chiral shear waves and chiral magnetic waves.

David Stork-Ricoh Innovations "Computer vision and optics in the study of fine art"

Thu, Feb 10, 2011, 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm
New rigorous computer vision algorithms have shed light on a number of problems and controversies in the history and interpretation of fine art.

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.

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...
