Can science cope with open systems?
Prof. Stefanovska runs the Nonlinear Biomedical Physics group at Lancaster University. Her research focuses on the physical principles underlying living systems.
Dr Yue (Christina) Wang will deliver a special CMpi seminar. Christina - a member of the Photonics group since 2013 - was awarded a Royal Academy of Engineering Fellow September last year with her project TOAST - two-dimensional optical amplification for silicon technologies. This special seminar is therefore a good opportunity to learn about TOAST and her recent work on TMD lasers.
Brillouin optomechanical strong coupling
Dr Michael Vanner is a Lecturer at the Department of Physics, ICL, where he leads the quantum measurement lab. His research interests include cavity quantum optomechanics, quantum photonics, and hybrid quantum systems.
Introduction to the Questaal LMTO Suite
Dr Jackson specialises in f-electron systems, magnetism and methods for treating strong electronic correlation, specifically the GW approximation and the self-interaction correction to DFT.
Rhombohedral graphene and the SSH model
Dr McCann is a theorist who specialises in electronic & transport properties of graphene-based systems, widely known for his work on gapped bilayer graphene and weak localisation.
“Direct crystal phase engineering of 2D materials”
Mattevi is a Royal Society University Research Fellow and a Lecturer at the Materials Department, ICL. Her research interests centre on science and engineering of novel 2D atomically thin semiconducting materials to enable applications in optoelectronics and energy storage.
Vibrating nanotubes for quantum science and technology
Dr Laird is a Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellow based at the Department of Materials, Oxford, where he is part of the Quantum Electronic Devices Group. Dr Laird specialises in nanofabrication, quantum transport, and spin resonance, aiming to develop new technology and to explore fundamental science in quantum engineered devices.
Synthesis of ceramic nanoparticles by CO2 laser vaporisation
Besides conventional and generative processes for the fabrication of nanoporous or dense sintered structures Mother Nature serves as an inspiration for innovative approaches for the synthesis of biomimetic composite structures.
Did it jump or was it pushed?
Visiting speaker Dr Bill Allison of the Surface Physics Group at the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge, will give a talk in the Physics Department
Making a thermometer on a nano-stick
Dr Phil Dobson of the University of Glasgow's Engineering department talks about measuring thermal properties on the micro and nano-scale using Scanning Thermal Microscopy (SThM)
