  • Driven-dissipative dynamics with trapped ions and qubit-arrays
    Seminar:  Optics Seminar QUEST Center event:  Speaker:  Dr. Haggai Landa, Institut de Physique Théorique, Univ. Paris-Saclay (Physics Candidate) Date :  26/12/2018 – 12:00 – 13:00 Place:  Nano Center, 9th floor seminar room Abstract:  Coming out of a hot oven, a trapped ion can be cooled by light down to a thousandth degree above Kelvin just by applying radiation pressure. Despite this reality, existing theories of the cooling dynamics are mostly limited to the …
  • Wavefront shaping of spatially entangled photons
    Seminar:  Optics Seminar QUEST Center event:  Speaker:  Prof. Yaron Bromberg, Racah Institute of Physics at the Hebrew University Date :  19/12/2018 – 12:00 – 13:00 Place:  Nano Center, 9th floor seminar room Abstract:    n recent years, we are witnessing rapid developments of quantum technologies in a wide range of applications, including cryptography, spectroscopy, sensing, and imaging. However, the implementation of quantum technologies in real-world scenari …
  • Lucio Frydmann
    Seminar:  Condensed Matter Resnick seminar QUEST Center event:  Speaker:  Lucio Frydmann (Weizmann) Date :  03/01/2019 – 12:30 – 13:30 Place:  Nano (206), 9th floor Abstract:  N/A …
  • Theory of bistable correlated nonlinear oscillators in circuit quantum electrodynamics
    Seminar:  Condensed Matter Resnick seminar QUEST Center event:  Speaker:  Eran Ginossar (Surrey, UK) Date :  27/12/2018 – 12:30 – 13:30 Place:  Nano (206), 9th floor Abstract:  We will describe our theoretical and experimental work towards understanding the joint activated dynamics exhibited by two superconducting quantum oscillators. The open quantum systems approach can describe a cavity mode oscillator which is strongly coupled to a superconducting qubit in the s …
  • The Gas Liquid Transition of Excitons: from Bose glass to BEC
    Seminar:  Condensed Matter Resnick seminar QUEST Center event:  Speaker:  Israel Bar Joseph (Weizmann) Date :  13/12/2018 – 12:30 – 13:30 Place:  Nano (206), 9th floor Abstract:  In this talk I shall review our work on the gas-liquid transition of 2D excitons in GaAs quantum wells. Below a critical temperature and above a critical density this system undergoes a phase transition to a liquid state. By employing a variety of optical spectroscopy tools we map the phase …
  • Collective quantum optics with 2D atom arrays
    Seminar:  Optics Seminar QUEST Center event:  Speaker:  Dr. Efi Shahmoon, Harvard University (Physics Candidate) Date :  05/12/2018 – 14:00 Place:  Nano Center, 9th floor seminar room Abstract:  How do atoms radiate together? Although still an open question in general, addressing this problem of collective light-matter interactions in specific cases can lead to important insights and applications. In my talk, I will discuss how the collective optical response of a 2 …
  • The role of a layer in deep learning
    Seminar:  Colloquium QUEST Center event:  Speaker:  Zohar Ringel, Hebrew University Date :  10/12/2018 – 10:30 Place:  Physics 301 Abstract:  Deep artificial neural networks (DNNs) have been driving many of the recent advancements in machine learning. An important question on the theory side of DNNs concerns the role played by each layer in the network. Recently two bold conjectures were made: The first is that DNNs learn to perform a series of Renormalization-Group …
