CM seminar : Cavity-mediated spin readout in an industrial silicon transistor

04 Jun2020

Speaker: Joseph Salfi, Assistant Professor at ECE, UBC

Time: May 28, 2020 :: 2:00PM - 3:00PM

Location: Zoom Meeting ID: 918 1320 7475

Abstract: Spin-based quantum bits in silicon are an exciting platform for processing of quantum information. Silicon materials host some of the most coherent quantum two-level systems ever measured [1], and qubits can be manipulated and measured accurately in devices that resemble classical transistors [2]. An often-overlooked aspect of quantum devices is the problem of reading out many qubits on...

CM seminar : Light-Matter Interaction in Charge Density Waves

21 May2020

Speaker: Anshul Kogar, UCLA

Time: May 21, 2020 :: 2:00PM - 3:00PM

Location: Zoom Meeting ID: 930 3430 9915

Abstract: When electrons in a solid are excited with light, they can alter the free energy landscape and access regions that are beyond reach in thermal equilibrium. This accessibility becomes of importance in the presence of phase competition, when one state of matter is favored over another by only a small energy scale that, in principle, is surmountable with light....

CM seminar - Determining electron-phonon coupling using time- and angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy

11 May2020

Time: May 14, 2020 :: 2:00PM - 3:00PM

Location: Zoom

Abstract: Pump-probe spectroscopies have extended many well-established equilibrium techniques into the time domain. Among them, time-resolved ARPES is especially exciting, as it provides access to the electronic structure and many-body interactions on an ultrafast timescale. Despite its success, the applicability of TR-ARPES has been curtailed by the limited photon energy, resolution, and repetition rate of available laser sources, which generally...

CM Seminar : Dimensional reduction by geometrical frustration

10 Mar2020

Speaker: Zenji Hiroi - University of Tokyo

Time: March 10, 2020 :: 2:00PM - 3:00PM

Location: Brimacombe 311

Dimensionality is one of the most important factors that critically govern phase transitions and elementary excitations in solids. Low dimensional spin systems are approximately materialized in actual three-dimensional (3D) crystals via anisotropic chemical bonding. However, dimensionality may not be always a “built-in” character of a crystal structure but can be an emergent property in a frustrated spin system. One example...

CM Seminar : Topological Physics in HgTe-based Quantum Devices

28 Feb2020

Speaker: Laurens W. Molenkamp

Time: February 28, 2020 :: 2:00PM - 3:00PM

Location: Brimacombe 311

Suitably structured HgTe is a topological insulator in both 2- (a quantum well wider than some 6.3 nm) and 3 (an epilayer grown under tensile strain) dimensions. The material has favorable properties for quantum transport studies, i.e. a good mobility and a complete absence of bulk carriers, which allowed us to demonstrate variety of novel transport effects.

CM Seminar : Ultrafast Resonant X-ray Scattering on Quantum Materials at LCLS

27 Feb2020

Speaker: Giacomo Coslovich

Time: February 27, 2020 :: 2:00PM - 3:00PM

Location: Brimacombe 311

Abstract : The use of ultrashort optical and X-ray pulses offers new opportunities to study fundamental interactions in materials exhibiting unconventional quantum states, such as stripes, charge density waves and high-temperature superconductivity. In this talk I will first review recent results produced at the LCLS in this field. I will then focus on ultrafast resonant X-ray scattering experiments on...

CM Seminar : Josephson Detection of Multiband Effects in Superconductors

13 Feb2020

Speaker: James Williams - Maryland

Time: February 13, 2020 :: 2:00PM - 3:00PM

Location: Brimacombe 311

Abstract : The study of unconventional superconducting materials remains an active frontier of condensed matter physics. Exotic superconductivity, such as high T_C, topological, and heavy-fermion superconductors, often rely on phase sensitive measurements to determine the underlying pairing and/or the nature of novel excitations. In this talk I will detail the use of Josephson effect to detect novel properties of...
