  • Quantum Metasurfaces for Photonic Many-Body Entanglement
    Seminar:  Optics Seminar QUEST Center event:  Speaker:  Dr. Rivka Bekenstein, Harvard University (Lukin group) Date :  13/11/2019 – 12:00 – 13:00 Place:  Nanotechnology center, 9th floor seminar room Abstract:  Entanglement generation is a crucial ingredient for the realization of future quantum technologies, and requires high fidelity quantum gates between atomic and photonic qubits. I will describe the novel concept of quantum metasurfaces which allows for the gen …
  • An alternate route to complexity: Trade-off between transcriptome plasticity and genome evolution in cephalopods
    Seminar:  Colloquium QUEST Center event:  Speaker:  Eli Eisenberg. Tel Aviv University Date :  17/06/2019 – 10:30 Place:  Physics 301 Abstract:    RNA editing is a post-transcriptional process that allows for diversification of proteomes beyond the genomic blueprint, a phenomenon called "recoding". However, it is infrequently used among animals for this purpose. I will review the state-of-the-art understanding of recoding by editing, and discuss at le …
