CMPi Seminar: Chemistry in the World’s Tiniest Test Tube
Prof. Andrei Khlobystov is Professor of Nanomaterials at the School of Chemistry at Nottingham and the Director of Nanoscale & Microscale Research Centre. Andrei's research focuses on chemistry of carbon nanotubes and fullerenes and development of applications for these materials.
Spin dynamics simulations of Iridium Manganese alloys &
Quantum Coherent Communications
This week's CMPi seminar will be delivered by Sarah Jenkins and Rupesh Kumar (10-15min talk each). Sarah just submitted her thesis and now is a research software engineer in Richard's group. She will talk about Spin Dynamics Simulations of Iridium Manganese Alloys. And Rupesh is currently a PDRA of Quantum Communications Hub. His expertise is in discrete as well as quantum key distribution systems.
The Quantum Communications Hub
Our next virtual seminar via Zoom will be delivered by Tim Spiller, who is also the Director of the UK Quantum Communications Hub. He will talk about the development of phase 2 Quantum Hub.
Mini-workshop 13th March: CMPi/Nanocentre
This CMPi/Nanocentre mini-workshop has two international speakers, Dr Alessandra Bellissimo from ETH Zürich, and Prof. Dr. Petra Rudolf, from University of Groningen, Netherlands.
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.
Exploring Nuclear Structure with Machine Learning
Machine learning has been shown to be incredible powerful for pattern recognition and making predictions in a variety of research fields. Here it is applied to classify the structure of nuclei, based on experimental measurements of resonant scattering reactions.
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.
