Special Seminar/ A strategy for progress in particle physics/ Isabel Garcia-Garcia / Kavil Institute

Special Seminar / Dark Matter Interactions in Condensed Matter Systems / Yonatan Kahn / University of Illinois

Thu, Jan 14, 2021, 12:00 pm

 As the gravitational evidence accumulates inexorably that dark matter comprises the vast majority of the mass of the universe, the particle nature of dark matter remains a mystery.

High Energy Experiment Seminar-Nan Lu -"Recent CMS results on Higgs boson physics and contribution to Snowmass 2021"

Tue, Jan 12, 2021, 2:00 pm



Special Seminar / Perturbative and non-perturbative effects on cosmological observables / Victor Gorbenko / Stanford University

Tue, Jan 12, 2021, 12:00 pm

Initial conditions for the cosmological evolution of the universe remain one of the biggest unresolved puzzles in nature. A large set of ideas pertaining to this puzzle are based on the theory of inflation — a period of an exponentially fast expansion of space.

Gravity Group Lunch Seminar, Saptarshi Chaudhuri | Princeton "Axions and DM Radio at Princeton"

Fri, Dec 18, 2020, 12:00 pm

I introduce DM Radio, a lumped-LC oscillator search for axion dark matter. I review the detection scheme and design, current experimental status, and future prospects, including the use of electromagnetic quantum metrology in previously-unexplored kHz and MHz frequency ranges.

Special Seminar | Time-domain pulsed tunneling spectroscopy of two-dimensional electronic systems | Heun Mo Yoo | MIT

Thu, Dec 17, 2020, 1:00 pm

Two-dimensional (2D) electronic systems host a plethora of remarkable phenomena, including the integer and fractional quantum Hall effects (Nobel Prize 1985 and 1998), and have stimulated a wide range of fundamental science and engineering research.

Condensed Matter Zoom Seminar | Anton Kapustin, Caltech | "Higher-dimensional generalizations of the Berry curvature for gapped lattice systems"

Wed, Dec 16, 2020, 3:00 pm

Building on the work of von Neumann and Wigner, M. Berry showed that there are topologically protected level-crossings in the space of quantum systems. These level-crossings can be detected using the curvature of the Berry connection. In this talk I will describe analogs of this for interacting lattice systems in infinite volume.


Special Seminar - Development of a single vacuum ultra-violet photon-sensing solution for the nEXO experiment and beyond | Giacomo Gallina | University of British Columbia

FPO - Trithep Devakul - "Subdimensional Topological Quantum Phases of Matter"

Tue, Dec 15, 2020, 2:00 pm

This Dissertation concerns phases of matter with various ``subdimensional'' properties. We start with topologically ordered phases with subdimensional properties. This includes a discussion of fracton topologically ordered phases, resonating valence plaquette phases, and floating topological phases.

Special Seminar | Towards DarkSide-20k | Bianca Bottino | INFN

Tue, Dec 15, 2020, 2:00 pm

The DarkSide-20k experiment will perform a comprehensive search for high-mass WIMPs using a dual phase argon time projection chamber (TPC) located in the Gran Sasso National Laboratories (LNGS), in Italy.

Special Seminar | Optimizing the photon budget: 4D imaging of biological dynamics | Kevin Keomanee-Dizon | University of Southern California

Mon, Dec 14, 2020, 2:30 pm

In the last few decades, there have been transformative advances in optical microscopy that now offers us the ability to observe the organization and dynamics of biological systems at high resolution in space and time.  Such 4D imaging, however, is challenged by unavoidable tradeoffs between spatial resolution, acquisition speed, penetration...

Special Seminar | Emergent phenomena in magnetic van der Waals heterostructures | Tiancheng Song | University of Washington

Mon, Dec 14, 2020, 1:30 pm

Van der Waals (vdW) heterostructures built by the vertical stacking of various 2D materials provide an ideal platform for the rational design of emergent phenomena.
