SEMINARS

  • QI Algorithms: From Quantum-AI to Entanglement Detection
    Seminar:  Optics Seminar QUEST Center event:  Speaker:  Adi Makmal, Institut für Theoretische Physik, Universität Innsbruck Date :  06/12/2017 – 12:00 – 13:00 Place:  Nano-center, 9th floor seminar room Abstract:  Quantum artificial intelligence (AI) is an interdisciplinary field, which has emerged in the last five years with the promise of enhancing AI performances. The first part of the talk will focus on reinforcement learning (RL), in which learning is achieved …
  • Universal States and Efimov Physics in Fermionic Mixtures
    Seminar:  Optics Seminar QUEST Center event:  Speaker:  Betzalel Bazak, Physique Théorique Institut de Physique Nucléaire d’Orsay Date :  08/11/2017 – 12:00 – 13:00 Place:  Nano-center, 9th floor seminar room Abstract:  The system of few identical fermions interacting resonantly with a distinguishable atom exhibits a rich and interesting physics, including universal states and the celebrated Efimov effect. The (2+1) system, composed of two heavy fermions and lighter …
  • Analyzing quantum foundations and applications with single photon experiments
    Seminar:  Optics Seminar QUEST Center event:  Speaker:  Dr. Eliahu Cohen, H.H. Wills Physics Laboratory, University of Bristol Date :  01/11/2017 – 12:00 – 13:00 Place:  Nano-center, 9th floor seminar room Abstract:  Quantum optics experiments employing a single photon source, as well as a single photon detector, allow us to probe the foundations of quantum theory. In the last few years I have designed a line of experiments based on weak measurements [1] for this pu …
  • Anomalous Hall effect with massive Dirac fermions
    Seminar:  Condensed Matter Resnick seminar QUEST Center event:  Speaker:  Dr. Pavel Ostrovsky, Max Planck Institute, Stuttgart Date :  02/10/2017 – 12:00 Place:  Reznik building, seminar room Abstract:  The anomalous Hall effect arises in systems with both spin-orbit coupling and magnetization. We study the minimal model of the anomalous Hall effect based on the massive Dirac Hamiltonian and consider two  limiting cases of weak (Gaussian) and strong ( …
  • Spin Configurations in Quasi- One Dimensional Semiconductor Channels
    Seminar:  Special Seminar QUEST Center event:  Speaker:  Sir Michael Pepper Date :  03/07/2017 – 12:00 Place:  Resnick Building room 210 Abstract:  It will be shown that the well known technique of Magnetic Focussing can be used to probe the spin configuration in a one dimensional electron channel. Spin polarization occurs which can be controlled by geometry, the relation to the 0.7 structure will be discussed. When the confinement is relaxed a single line of electr …
  • Spin Fluctuations and Entanglement
    Seminar:  Condensed Matter Resnick seminar QUEST Center event:  Speaker:  Ari Turner (Technion) Date :  25/05/2017 – 12:30 – 13:30 Place:  Nano (#206) – 9th floor Abstract:  I will compare the effects of quantum and thermal fluctuations in a spin chain by calculating the probability distribution for spin fluctuations in a segment. The calculation will use the concept of an "entanglement Hamiltonian." The entanglement Hamiltonian can be used to identify top …
  • Phase-sensitive Quantum CARS beyond the classical limit
    Seminar:  Optics Seminar QUEST Center event:  Speaker:  Yoad Michael, Bar Ilan Date :  24/05/2017 – 12:00 – 13:00 Place:  Nanotechnology center, 9th floor seminar room Abstract:  The Raman spectrum of a sample provides information about the sample's molecular content, with each individual molecule contributing its own typical "fingerprint" spectrum. However, the sensitivity of Raman Scattering as a spectroscopic method is limited by the relatively weak …
