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 ...

Modular forms and their generalizations are one of the most central concepts in number theory. It took almost 200 years to cultivate the mathematics lying behind the classical (i.e. scalar) modular forms. All of the famous modular forms (e.g. Dedekind eta function) involve a multiplier, this multiplier is a 1-dimensional representation of the underlying group. ...

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"

The photoelectrochemical (PEC) water splitting with TiO2 as photoanode have been largely studied to using solar energy as a source. However, TiO2 have significant challenges; relatively large band gap, fast recombination speed of photo-generated electron and hole. We then tried two modifications to absorb visible light and suppress recombination. One is using localized surface plasmonic ...

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"

ChE-605 - Highlights in Energy Research seminar series Over the past years we have developed various approaches to fabricate materials with sophisticated chemical and structural complexity. We have focused on synthesis in non-aqueous solution since this approach is not limited to one particular class of materials. Thus, it gives us flexibility to tailor the composition ...

Ultrafast control of matter phases is of both fundamental and technological interest. Here, we study the ultrafast dynamics of Ta 2 NiSe 5 by means of time- and angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy (trARPES) [1] and transient reflectivity measurements [2]. Ta 2 NiSe 5 is proposed to support an excitonic insulator (EI) phase below T C ≈ ...

This is the last conference of the semester and will be of a more general nature than the earlier more specialized conferences and workshops of the program. It will cover broad aspects of descriptive set theory and its connections with other areas of mathematics. Read more about "Descriptive set theory conference"

Fraïssé theory is a method in classical Model Theory of producing canonical limits of certain families of finite structures. For example, the random graph is the Fraïssé limit of the family of all finite graphs. It turns out that this method can be dualized, with the dualization producing projective Fraïssé limits, and applied to the ...

Understanding, and subsequently being able to manipulate, the excited-state dynamics and decay pathways of photo-excited functional transition-metal complexes is of utmost importance in order to solve grand challenges in solar energy conversion (photocatalysis and solar cells) and data storage. These processes are very complicated and, currently, no single method can encompass all the involved phenomena ... Read more about "Ultrafast photo-excited dynamics in transition-metal complexes"
