ChE-605 - Highlights in Energy Research seminar series The development of synthetic protocols for the preparation of highly loaded metal nanoparticle supported catalysts has received a great deal of attention over the last few decades. Independently controlling metal loading, nanoparticle size, distribution and accessibility has proven challenging because of the clear interdependence between these crucial ...

In water and ice, the atomic nuclei exhibit quantum properties, which a growing body of evidence suggests are caused almost entirely by the quantum Boltzmann statistics, with the dynamics of the nuclei being classical. Here we summarise a recently developed theory which explains how such a classical dynamics can arise as a result of certain ...

In this talk, I will present two results from our recent work with superconducting microwave circuits. In the first, I will tell you about our implementation of ultra-strong light-matter coupling using a compact vacuum-gap transmon qubit design. Motivated by a desire to analyze our data quantitatively, we were led to a new circuit-quantisation model for ...

Exceptional sets play an important role in numerous branches of mathematics, for instance in measure theory, topology, harmonic and complex analysis, Banach space theory, algebraic geometry, combinatorics, probability and ergodic theory, set theory and descriptive set theory, just to mention a few. Exceptional sets describe notions of smallness from various points of view, some notable ... Read more about "Ideals and exceptional sets in Polish spaces"

Let M be a compact oriented three-manifold whose interior is hyperbolic of finite volume. In recent years the variety of representations of the fundamental group \pi_1(M) into semisimple Lie groups, most notably SL_2(C) and SL_n(C) has attracted a lot of attention. It turns out that many invariants of the variety M such as the volume, ... Read more about "Topology Seminar: Volume variation for representations of 3-manifold groups in SL_n(C)"

The discovery of thousands of extrasolar planets and the inferred astronomical number of Earth-like planets in the Galaxy have recently fueled an intense activity in Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). The “Breakthrough Listen” initiative, the largest and most comprehensive search ever, and other ongoing and upcoming SETI research programs in the radio and optical spectrum ...

I will discuss two loosely-related projects, both involving nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) at temperatures below 30 K. In the first project, we use rapid mixing and rapid freezing to trap transient intermediates in biochemical processes such as protein folding, ligand binding, and oligomerization, on time scales of several milliseconds. The ... Read more about "NMR at very low temperatures: An approach to millisecond-scale structure determination and micron-scale imaging"
