  • 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 ( …
