Molecular semiconductors for LEDs and solar cells: designing around the Coulomb interaction (SCS and LACUS)
Pi-conjugated organic molecules and polymers now provide a set of well-performing semiconductors that support devices, including light-emitting diodes (LEDs) as used in smart-phone displays and lighting, field-effect transistors (FETs) and photovoltaic diodes (PVs). These are attractive materials to manufacture, particularly for large-area applications where they can be processed by direct printing, so that the cost ...

K. Hess, M. Kedziorek, E. Riehl, and B. Shipley have developed methods to induce model structures from an adjunction which they apply to prove the existence of injective and projective model structures on categories of diagrams in accessible model categories. In this talk, I will explain how to adapt their proof to an enriched setting, ... Read more about "Topology Seminar: Injective and projective model structures on enriched diagram categories"

One of the most recent frontiers in quantum optics is the study of many body physics of light. Photons, in resonant nanostructures, can be made strongly interacting thanks to tailored optical nonlinearities that are enhanced by strong light confinement. As a result, model many-body quantum systems can be conceived and are currently realized with superconducting ... Read more about "Towards a many-body physics of light"

Grid scale electricity storage on daily and seasonal time scales is required to accommodate increasing amounts of renewable electricity from wind and solar power. The proposal for electricity storage that emerges is that storage in batteries is efficient for the short term while storage in hydrogen based fuels is required for the long term. Towards ...

In this talk we discuss the local-global principle for integral solutions to systems of two (inhomogeneous) quadratic equations. In particular we will see concrete examples of Brauer classes obstructing the Hasse principle and discuss obstructions to the local-global principle in more general. This is joint work with Joerg Jahnel. Read more about "On integral solutions to systems of two quadratic equations"
