Speaker: Dan Ward Affiliation: Rice Title: Electrical and Optical Characterization of Molecular Nanojunctions Abstract: Electrical conduction at the single molecule scale has been studied extensively with molecular nanojunctions. However, our understanding is hindered by a lack of methods for simultaneous local imaging or spectroscopy to…
Neutrino Detection with Liquid Argon - Joshua Spitz Yale University PFEP SEMINAR
Wed, Dec 15, 2010, 1:30 pm3:00 pm
Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC) technol-ogy offers exceptional position resolution, total-absorption calorimetry, scalability, and efficient particle identification for neutrino detection. ArgoNeuT, a 170 liter LArTPC neu-trino detector set in the NuMI neutrino beamline at Fermilab, has recently collected thousands of low energy (~3…

Speaker: Ofer Firstenberg Affiliation: Technion-Israel Institute of Technology Title: Diffusion and Diffraction of Polaritons in Atomic Media Abstract: We investigate the non-local optical response in a medium of diffusing atoms, where the spectra exhibit motional broadening and narrowing features. Light-matter polaritons traversing the…

Or Sattath, "A Quantum Lovasz Local Lemma"
Thu, Jun 10, 2010, 12:00 pm1:30 pm

ABSTRACT: The Lovasz Local Lemma is a powerful tool in probability theory to show the existence of combinatorial objects meeting a prescribed collection of ``weakly dependent" criteria. We present a quantum generalization of this result, which replaces probabilities with a weaker notion of relative dimension and allows to lower bound the…
