  • Observation of stimulated Hawking radiation in an optical analogue
    Seminar:  Optics Seminar QUEST Center event:  Speaker:  Yehonathan Drori, Weizmann Institute of Science Date :  02/01/2019 – 14:00 – 15:00 Place:  Nano Center, 9th floor seminar room Abstract:  Hawking radiation, the quantum emission of light from black holes, is too weak to be measured from known astrophysical sources. However, experimental observations can be made in laboratory settings using analogue systems. In such systems, the space-time geometry of the event …
  • Robust high resolution MRI by spatiotemporal encoding
    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:  Over the last decade we have introduced and perfected so-called spatiotemporal encoding (SPEN) methodologies to collect multidimensional NMR spectra and images in a single scan. This talk will focus on the new spin physics underlying these methodologies, and on the potential of these technique …
  • The transverse flow of entropy in solids and electronic topology
    Seminar:  Colloquium QUEST Center event:  Speaker:  Kamran Behnia, CNRS & ESPCI France Date :  07/01/2019 – 10:30 Place:  Physics 301 Abstract:  In the semiclassical picture of thermal and thermoelectric transport, heat-carrying quasi-particles such as electrons and phonons are scattered after traveling a finite distance. The two signatures of this picture are the Wiedemann-Franz law and Mott’s formula. The first part of this talk reviews our present pictu …
