HEP-Seminar: Prof. Dr. Michal Heller (Ghent University)Virtual
Holographic complexity proposals are interesting because, on one hand, they express universal properties of black hole interiors and, on the other, they go beyond the area-centric view on quantum gravity. Prof. Heller will talk about recent progress in that area.
Physics & Astronomy Colloquium – Spring 2023 – Hansung Gim227 Gallalee Hall 514 University Blvd., Tuscaloosa, AL
Speaker: Hansung Gim (Montana State/ University of Alabama) Title: Exploring the submillimeter properties of the black hole in Henize 2-10 Abstract: It is well known that massive black holes (BHs) were almost exclusively found in the giant galaxies. However, recent studies have shown that these BHs are much more common in dwarf galaxies than previously

Speaker: Dr. Yu Li (Argonne National Laboratory) Title: The Pursuit of Emergent Phenomena in Quantum Materials- a Perspective from Interaction, Geometry and Symmetry Abstract: Discovering and investigating emergent phenomena in quantum materials is an exciting and challenging endeavor, requiring careful consideration and treatment of the large number of degrees of freedom inherent in condensed matter.
Colloquium – Marzieh Kavand – Spin Physics for Quantum Systems Applications227 Gallalee Hall 514 University Blvd., Tuscaloosa, AL
Speaker: Dr. Marzieh Kavand of Ohio State University Title: "Studying Spin Physics in 2D Materials and Organic Semiconductors for Spintronics and Quantum Systems Applications" Abstract: Atomic size defects in solid-state materials are a material platform for spin qubits. Electrical activation of atomic size defects offers more flexibility in quantum spin devices. Tunnelling current in tunnel
Colloquium – Daniel Carney – Fundamental Physics at the Quantum Limits of Measurement227 Gallalee Hall 514 University Blvd., Tuscaloosa, AL
Speaker: Daniel Carney (Berkeley National Laboratory) Title: Fundamental Physics at the Quantum Limits of Measurement Abstract: Progress in fundamental physics -- the search for new particles, forces, and laws of nature -- relies on probing regimes of nature that have not yet been explored. This requires continuous development of ultra-sensitive detectors. In recent years, a
HEP Seminar by Prof. Dr. Mark Srednicki (UCSB)GL 310 Tuscaloosa, AL
Prof. Dr. Mark Srednicki will discuss Quantum Chaos and the Foundations of Statistical Mechanics, and Eigenstate Thermalization. Understanding the emergence of the rules of statistical mechanics for an isolated many-body system from an underlying quantum-mechanical microdynamics is a longstanding problem of fundamental physics.
