### Scott Tremaine, IAS "2020 Vision: the Decade Survey in Astronomy and Astrophysics"

Thu, Sep 23, 2010, 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm
Last month the National Research Council completed a massive two-year project to prioritize major projects and other activities in astronomy and astrophysics for the next decade. I will review the process and results, and how they were influenced by the scientific and political landscape and by the successes and failures of past decade surveys.

### Andreas Wallraff, "Measuring the correlations of a Microwave Frequency Single Photon source"

Wed, Jun 16, 2010, 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm

ABSTRACT: Circuit quantum electrodynamics (QED) allows for excellent control and measurement of the quantum mechanical properties of qubits, photons and their interactions. As a result, circuit QED is an ideal test bed to investigate the quantum nature of light.
