CM Seminar: Three superconducting phases of 1111-type iron-based superconductor RFeAs1-xPnxO1-y(F,H)y (R=La and Nd, Pn=P and Sb)

18 Jul2019

Speaker: : Prof. Shigeki Miyasaka, Department of Physics, Osaka University, Japan

Time: July 18, 2019, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Location: Brimacombe Building 311

Abstract: In one of 1111-type iron-based superconducting (SC) system LaFeAsO, the electron doping level and the local crystal structure can be controlled by the F/H substitution for O and P for As. By these chemical substitution effects, Fermi surface (FS) topology has been changed, and three different SC phases appears in LaFeAs 1- x P x O 1- y...

Seminar: Majorana-Hubbard model on the triangular lattice

17 Jul2019

Speaker: Tarun Tummuru, SBQMI

Time: 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Location: BRIM 311

Of late, there has been a growing body of experimental work that brings us closer to an undoubted realization of Majorana fermions in condensed matter systems. In two-dimensions these quasiparticles arise as zero energy vortex bound states on the surface of a topological superconductor. And in the presence of a lattice of these vortices, interactions between these Majorana zero modes...

SEMINAR: VALLEY POLARIZATION IN TRANSITION METAL DICHALCOGENIDES MONOLAYERS BY OPTICAL PUMPING

15 Jul2019

Speaker: Dr. Junfeng Dai, Southern University of Science and Technology

Time: 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Location: BRIM 311

With the development of semiconductor industry, scaling of electronic devices in integrated circuits has approached technological and physical limit, such as quantization of electrical conductance in thin transistor channels. Researchers have to search new materials and manipulate new freedom of electrons to overcome this physical limit. So the spin- and valley-based electric devices on two-dimensional materials become an important breakthrough...

CM Seminar: Kondo Blockade and Generative Hamiltonian Learning for molecular electronics

06 Jun2019

Speaker: Prof. Andrew Mitchell, University College Dublin, Ireland

Time: June 6, 2019, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Location: BRIM 311

Abstract: When nanoscale components are incorporated into external circuits, electronic transport can exhibit striking quantum phenomena with no classical analogue. Molecular junctions, in which a single molecule bridges the gap in a nanowire, constitute a particularly rich set of systems, demonstrating both strong correlation effects such as Coulomb blockade and Kondo, as well as quantum interference arising from orbital complexity....

CM Seminar: From MEMS to Gravitational Wave Detectors: modeling energy dissipation in oxyde glasses at the atomic scale

05 Jun2019

Speaker: David Rodney, University of Lyon

Time: June 5, 2019, 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Location: BRIM 311

Abstract:

How are sound waves attenuated when they travel in a medium? How to damp most efficiently the vibrations due to an earthquake? Inversely, how to build a stable resonator? or avoid loosing energy when a laser beam rebounds on a mirror in a gravitational wave detector, the process which currently limits the precision of these very large...

CM Seminar: Vector beams, high harmonic generation and THz solenoidal magnetic fields

17 May2019

Speaker: Paul Corkum, Joint Attosecond Science Laboratory University of Ottawa and National Research Council of Canada

Time: May 17, 2019, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Location: Macleod 418

Abstract: We use intense vector beams to generate high harmonics or to create solenoidal currents in solids or gases. We create circularly polarized harmonics and we predict THz magnetic fields reaching the scale that is only available at user facilities.

Brainstorming session and summer school: Interacting Majorana Fermions

01 May2019

Time: School: May 1, 2019, Workshop: May 2-3, 2019

Location: Brimacombe 311

This two-day workshop on May 2-3 will focus on recent advances in the field of interacting Majorana fermion systems in various geometries. Progress in experimental detection and manipulation of Majorana fermions in solid state devices promises that such interacting systems could be soon amenable to laboratory studies. Various exotic phenomena predicted in recent theoretical works, such as the emergent space-time...

CM Seminar: Quantum materials: insights from near field nano-optics

04 Apr2019

Speaker: D.N. Basov, Columbia University, http://infrared.cni.columbia.edu

Time: Apr 4, 2019, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Location: BRIM 311

Abstract:

In 1944 Hans Bethe reported on “the diffraction of electromagnetic radiation by a hole small compared with the wave-length” [Physical Review 66, 163 (1944)]. This seminal paper was among the early precursors to a new and vibrant area of research: near field nano-optics. I will discuss recent nano-optical experiments on quantum materials including graphene and other atomically layered...
