Physics Colloquium

**New time a location**

Unless otherwise noted, the Physics Department colloquia are held on Mondays at 12:30 pm on the 8th floor of the Pupin Hall's Theory Center.

Colloquia are scheduled during the academic year. They are not held during the summer months.

Colloquium organizer:  Mike Tuts pmt2(at)columbia.edu

(Postponed) David Awschalom - University of Chicago

Monday, April 29, 2019 - 4:15pm

 

** This colloquium is postponed to a later date (TBA)**

 

About the speaker

Professor Awschalom is one of the world’s leading scientists in spintronics and quantum information engineering. His research involves understanding and controlling the spins of electrons, ions, and nuclei for fundamental studies of quantum systems, as well as potential applications in computing, imaging, and encryption. 

Keith Baker - Yale

Monday, September 9, 2019 - 12:30pm

 

Title & abstract TBA

About the speaker

Keith Baker's research is in experimental particle physics: The energy frontier at the Large Hadron Collider in the ATLAS collaboration and precision studies at sub-eV energies.  Current topics include quantum information science in HEP, electroweak symmetry breaking, and beyond the standard model physics searches.

More details on Keith's research can be found here.

Immanuel Bloch - Max-Planck Institute, Germany

Monday, November 18, 2019 - 12:30pm

 

Title & abstract TBA

About the speaker

Immanuel Bloch's research is focused on the investigation of quantum many-body systems using ultracold atomic and molecular quantum gases. Bloch is known for his work on ultracold atoms in artificial crystals of light, so called optical lattices and especially the first realization of a quantum phase transition from a weakly interacting superfluid to a strongly interacting Mott insulating state of matter.
