PCTS: Unruh acceleration radiation, vacuum entanglement and relativity

Special Seminar - Entanglement in an assembled array of single strontium atoms | Ivaylo S. Madjarov | Caltech

Wed, Dec 9, 2020, 2:30 pm

The recently-developed technique of atom-by-atom assembly has allowed for the generation of large atomic qubit registers with zero defect entropy. When the atoms in such a system are excited to Rydberg states, they experience long-range interactions that enable many-body interatomic entanglement of their internal...


Condensed Matter Zoom Seminar | Christian Gross, U of Tuebingen | "Microscopic spin and density cross-correlations in the Hubbard systems"

Wed, Dec 9, 2020, 1:00 pm

Quantum gas microscopes provide experimental access to novel observables, foremost, single particle resolved multi-point correlation functions. These offer a novel microscopic window into the physics of strongly correlated many-body physics.


Special Seminar | CMB instrumentation and data analysis with CLASS | Matthew Petroff | Johns Hopkins

Wed, Dec 9, 2020, 1:00 pm

The Cosmology Large Angular Scale Surveyor (CLASS) is an array of polarization-sensitive millimeter wave telescopes that observes ∼70% of the sky at frequency bands centered near 40GHz, 90GHz, 150GHz, and 220GHz from the Atacama desert of northern Chile.

PRISM / PCCM Seminar Series Fall 2020

Wed, Dec 9, 2020, 12:00 pm

The Princeton Center for Complex Materials (PCCM) and the Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials (PRISM) co-sponsor a seminar series that is held on Wednesdays throughout the semester.

Audience: Faculty, Postdocs, graduate students

Special Seminar | Turning light into matter: observing photon-induced WW production at the LHC with ATLAS | William McCormack | LBL

Mon, Dec 7, 2020, 2:30 pm

After the Higgs mechanism breaks the SU(2)xU(1) symmetry of the Electroweak sector of the Standard Model, we find trilinear and quartic terms coupling photons and W bosons.  This leads to the experimentally testable prediction that two colliding high-energy photons can convert into two W bosons.  Measuring this interaction would be a unique...


Special Seminar | Searching for Clues to a Matter Dominated Universe with Liquid Argon Time Projection Chambers | Yeon-Jae Jwa | Columbia University

Mon, Dec 7, 2020, 1:30 pm

We live in a matter-dominated Universe. Sakharov's famous argument listed three necessary conditions for such a manifestation of matter dominance: There needs to be a baryon number violating process; CP symmetry violation; and interactions out of thermal equilibrium.


It from Qubit Workshop | Online Workshop on Qubits and Black Holes | December 7-9, 2020 | 9:00am - 6:00pm | via Zoom

Mon, Dec 7, 2020, 9:00 am to Wed, Dec 9, 2020, 6:00 pm

This workshop will focus on the quantum mechanics of black holes with the goal of understanding how spacetime encodes quantum information. This meeting is sponsored by the “It from Qubit" collaboration. All talks will take place on Zoom. The link for the talks will be announced prior to the workshop.
