Past Condensed and Living Matter Seminars

Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "Self-propelled particles"

Hartmut Löwen (Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A8

Ordinary materials are "passive" in the sense that their constituents are typically made by inert particles which are subjected to thermal fluctuations, internal interactions and external fields but do…

Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "Unique transport signatures in magnetic materials: Connecting semiclassics and quantum perturbation theory at nonlinear order"

Tobias Holder (Weizmann Institute of Science)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A8

In the last few years, nonlinear responses have become increasingly important for the study and characterization of quantum materials, with the nonlinear anomalous Hall conductivity and…

Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "Rough fitness landscapes: from protein evolution to protein design"

Francesco Zamponi (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, CNRS)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory A8

Rough (energy, or free energy, or fitness) landscapes are ubiquitous in disordered systems, from material science to biology. These landscapes feature a multitude of local energy minima…

Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "Ultrafast manipulation of electronic interactions in quantum materials"

Matteo Mitrano (Harvard University)

Nov 30, 2022 - Nov 23, 2022 at - - See Zoom link

Intense ultrashort electromagnetic fields are an increasingly important tool to realize and control novel emergent phases in quantum materials. Among a variety of nonthermal excitation pathways, a…

Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "TBA"Many-body physics and self-organization with atoms and photons"

Ana Asenjo-Garcia, Columbia University
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A8

Dissipation and fluctuations are known to be sources of order in complex non-linear systems formed by many agents, as they lead to the generation of self-organized spatial or temporal structures. However…
