Dicke Candidate Seminar | Zurab Guguchia | "Probing the superconducting and magnetic properties of strongly correlated and topologically non-trivial materials" | Jadwin 303
Mon, Jan 8, 2018, 4:00 pm4:00 pm

In this talk a selection of some results of the hydrostatic pressure and impurity effects on structural, magnetic
and superconducting properties in the stripe phase of La214 cuprates [1] and in the Weyl semimetal phase of
MoTe2 [2] will be presented.
Cuprate high-temperature superconductors (HTSs) have complex phase diagrams…

Dicke Fellowship candidate seminar: Xiaomeng Liu, Harvard; "Exciton condensation in graphene double-layer heterostructure"
Mon, Jan 8, 2018, 1:30 pm1:30 pm

Excitons are electron-hole pairs bound by the Coulomb attraction, which can form Bose-Einstein condensates at low temperatures. By placing electrons and holes in spatially separated layers, a double-layer electronic system prevents electron-hole recombination and enables exciton condensation in equilibrium. Recent development of 2D material…

Dicke Candidate Seminar | Claudio Savarese | "A Novel Light Detector for DarkSide-20K" | Jadwin A09
Wed, Dec 13, 2017, 2:30 pm2:30 pm

Abstract:  The DarkSide collaboration aims for a dark matter direct detection using Argon-based dual-phase Time
Projection Chambers (TPCs), capable of observing both the scintillation and the ionization signals of
recoiling nuclei. The DarkSide “zero-background” strategy exploits the pulse shape discrimination
intrinsic of…

Dicke Candidate Seminar | Ariel Cukierman| Multiscale multichroic focal planes for measurements of the cosmic microwave background | Jadwin A09
Mon, Dec 11, 2017, 2:30 pm2:30 pm


Lithographed superconducting detectors have found many applications in millimeter and submillimeter astronomy including observations of the cosmic microwave background (CMB). A major goal of modern cosmology is to make precise measurements of the polarized fluctuations in the CMB with science goals such as a measurement of…

Light reception to be held afterwards in the Ballantine Lounge.

Physics Group Meeting | Jennifer Lin, Member, School of Natural Sciences, IAS | "Algebraic EE and Holography”
Wed, Mar 29, 2017, 1:45 pm1:45 pm

In the first part of the talk, I’ll explore whether EE’s of subalgebras not organized by position space in a holographic CFT may be useful for bulk reconstruction. In particular I'll explain how the lengths of non-minimal geodesics in AdS3 conical defect backgrounds can be interpreted as the EE's of certain subalgebras in the dual CFT. This…

Physics Group Meeting | Bartek Czech, Member, School of Natural Sciences, IAS; Stanford University | “Kinematic Space and Applications”
Wed, Mar 15, 2017, 1:45 pm1:45 pm

I will discuss kinematic space--the space of pairs of points in a CFT. Basic objects living in kinematic space are OPE blocks--contributions to the OPE from a single conformal family. In holographic theories, OPE blocks are dual at leading order in 1/N to integrals of effective bulk fields along geodesics or homogeneous minimal surfaces in AdS…

Physics Group Meeting | David Simmons-Duffin, School of Natural Sciences, IAS | “The Lightcone Bootstrap and the Spectrum of the 3d Ising CFT"
Wed, Feb 1, 2017, 1:45 pm1:45 pm

I will review the lightcone bootstrap and explain how it can be used to describe analytically some new numerical results for the 3dIsing CFT.
