Past lectures


MPL Distinguished Lecturer Series: Prof. Ignacio Cirac

Title: Quantum simulations with atoms in nano-structures Abstract: Many-body quantum systems are very hard to simulate with classical computers, as the running time increases exponentially with the size of the system. Quantum...[more]


Brillouin frequency comb generation in chalcogenide waveguides

Thomas Büttner, CUDOS, University of Sydney, Australia[more]


MPL Theory Seminars: Prof. Alexia Auffèves

Reversible work extraction in a hybrid opto-mechanical system With the progress of nano-technology, thermodynamics also has to be scaled down, calling for specific protocols to extract and measure work. Usually, such protocols...[more]


MPL Theory Seminars: Prof. Dr. Carsten Rockstuhl

Description of nanooptical systems at, well, the nanoscale The interaction of light with nanostructured materials gives rise to interesting optical effects. Exploration of these effects is fascinating both from an intellectual...[more]


MPL Theory Seminars: Prof. Dr. Jörg Evers

Titel: X-ray quantum optics: From Mössbauer to Fano Abstract: Quantum optical concepts based on coherence and interference have proven extremely successful for the study and manipulation of atoms and molecules. Recent...[more]


MPL Theory Seminars: Dr. Sergey Skipetrov

Abstract: Anderson localization is a halt of transport in quantum or wave systems due to strong disorder. It is associated with the localized character of eigenstates or eigenmodes. We have recently discovered that the simplest...[more]
