Special CM Seminar - Magic behavior of low-dimensional nanostructures

26 May2021

Speaker: David Tománek - Physics and Astronomy Dept., Michigan State University

Time: May 26, 2021 :: 03:00PM - 04:00PM

https://ubc.zoom.us/j/66400573212?pwd=U2txNjdnazcrMjJ4L2FZMWtXOFc2dz09 Meeting ID: 664 0057 3212 Passcode: 139139

Abstract: Like in a magic trick, atomically thin layers of specific materials can be mixed and stacked in a well-defined way. Due to the inter-layer interaction and charge transfer, the heterostructure may exhibit sometimes unexpected behavior. This occurs in the case of elemental boron, which is notorious...

The spooky quantum-ness of light
QMI Family & Friends Presentation Series

19 May2021

Speaker: Xiruo Yan, PhD Student

Time: Wednesday @ 3:00 PM

Please register here for zoom link: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/qmi-family-friends-tickets-153554414387

Abstract:

The wave-particle duality of light (or other quantum objects), where the photon (quanta of light) must be seen as in the form of wave as well as particle, has been generally accepted not one century ago. This quantum mechanical concept is already strange enough to us because there...
