Seminar: Orbital symmetry of Charge Density Wave Order in Cuprate Superconductors

12 Jul2018

Speaker: David Hawthorn, University of Waterloo

Time: Jul 12, 2018 :: 2:00PM - 3:00PM

Location: BRIM 311

Charge density wave (CDW) order has recently been revealed as a central feature of the cuprate phase diagram, co-existing and competing with superconductivity in underdoped cuprates. Intriguingly, the CDW order has been proposed to exhibit a novel d form factor orbital symmetry — a quadrupolar modulation of the charge on the oxygen atoms surrounding each Cu site — evidence...

Seminar: Chemical Principles of Topological Semimetals

10 Jul2018

Speaker: Leslie Schoop, Princeton University

Time: Jul 10, 2018 :: 10:30AM - 11:30AM

Location: BRIM 311

Topological Semimetals, such as Dirac and Weyl semimetals have sparked a new recent excitement in condensed matter physics. In this talk, I will argue that the rules and laws we know from inorganic chemistry are extremely useful to find and design new topological semimetals. Chemists have an on often underestimated predictive power of exotic physical properties. I will introduce how...

Seminar: High pressure floating zone crystal growth of strongly correlated materials

09 Jul2018

Speaker: Junjie Zhang, Materials Science and Technology Division, Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Time: Jul 9, 2018 :: 11:30AM - 12:30PM

Location: BRIM 311

Among various techniques available for making single crystals, optical image floating zone crystal growth has been recognized as a leading tool for the production of ultrahigh-purity single crystals. High pressure of gas provides an additional advantage to the floating zone crystal growth in twofold: (1) it can suppress the evaporation of volatile components, and (2) it can generate high activity...

Seminar: Nano-Fabrication via State-of-the Art Electron Beam Lithography and Device Applications at SUNUM

11 Jun2018

Time: June 11, 2018, BRIM 311, 11:30 am

Location: BRIM 311

Micro/Nano scale device fabrication requires advanced fabrication techniques in a cleanroom environment. Electron beam lithography (EBL) is one of the widely used, critical and flexible tool for sub-micron resolution patterning.

Raith/Vistec EBPG5000+ES EBL system is the flagship micro-nano lithography tool at Sabanci University Nanotechnology Research and Application Center (SUNUM). System provides 100kV patterning of 10 nm scale devices over...

Special Seminar
THE THEOREM OF QUANTUM MECHANICS NO GO

29 May2018

Speaker: Dr. V.E. Shapiro

Time: May 29, 2018, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Location: BRIM 311

Thus far quantum mechanism is commonly treated in both fundamental and applied matters as an ultimate unifying guideline of nature inherent in ambient noise impact. For arguments sake I formulate a no go theorem and deduce its evidence with topology arguments disproving the quantum principle of the realm everywhere, both in and off detailed balance, and discuss principles of atomism...

Seminar: Tools for in-situ and operando high-resolution microscopy—bench top experiments inside the microscope

22 May2018

Speaker: Julio A. Rodríguez Manzo, Application Scientist at Hummingbird Scientific

Time: Tuesday May 22, 2018 :: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Location: BRIM 311

I will present an overview of sample holders that broaden the stimuli “knobs”—environment, temperature, electric potential, etc.—that can be used to observe, with high-spatial resolution, a specimen or device in an electron or x-ray microscope under operating conditions. For example, with a standard transmission electron microscopy (TEM) sample holder specimens are observed at low pressures (~ 10 -7 mbar) that...

The interaction of magnetism and superconductivity, and the development of superconducting spintronics

17 May2018

Speaker: Mark Blamire, Department of Materials Science, University of Cambridge, UK

Time: Thu, 2018-05-17 14:00 - 15:00

Location: AMPEL 311

The discovery in 2010, using superconductor / ferromagnet / superconductor Josephson junctions, that it is possible to controllably create triplet Cooper pairs in which the electrons have parallel spins created the field of superconducting spin electronics (superspintronics) [1]. However, even if triplet pairing implies that supercurrents can carry spin, this is not in itself sufficient to create functioning superspintronic...

Bridging Indigenous Ways of Knowing with Western Ways of Doing Research

09 Apr2018

Time: 3:00PM to 5:00PM

Location: Telus World of Science

This panel discussion will aim to bridge Western ways of knowing with Indigenous ways of knowing and will be open to SBQMI and UBC faculty, staff, and students/visiting students, as well as the general public.

This unique event will bring Western scientists into conversations with indigenous researchers on how they can collaborate.

The moderator of...

Non-Equilibrium dynamics in conventional and unconventional superconductors

22 Mar2018

Speaker: Benedikt Fauseweh, Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research

Time: Thu, 2018-03-22 14:00 - 15:00

Location: AMPEL 311

The recent advancement in time resolved terahertz (THz) pump probe experiments has made it possible to investigate superconductors in a non-equilibrium setup, going far beyond linear response measurements. This opens a unique way in order to observe the symmetry and excitation spectrum of superconductors but also allows to dynamically modify the properties of the material. In my talk I...
