Past Condensed and Living Matter Seminars



Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "Exploiting the Singh Center’s Nanoscale Characterization Facility in Condensed Matter Research"

Eric Stach (University of Pennsylvania)
- See Zoom link below

Over the past several years, there have been significant investments in instrumentation for electron and ion microscopy in the Singh Center. I spoke to this group in the Fall of 2017, outlining what were then ‘plans…



Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "Controlling quantum information in room-temperature, solid-state devices"

Lee Bassett (University of Pennsylvania)
- See Zoom link below

Quantum science and technology rests on our understanding and control of matter and information at the smallest scales. Devices based on individual atoms or complexes of a few atoms represent the ultimate limit in a…



Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "Non-Hermitian Symmetry and Topology in Photonics "

Liang Feng (University of Pennsylvania)
- See Zoom link below

Symmetry and topology are fundamental notions existing in all kinds of natural systems, from spiral galaxies and hurricanes to amino acids in molecules and non-trivial topologically protected electronic states in…



Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "C^4E – Computational Chemistry of Compounds for Catalysis and Energy"

Aleksandra Vojvodic (University of Pennsylvania)
- See Zoom link below

The race to solve the sustainable energy puzzle is on. First-principles based computational methods, which balance accuracy and computational cost, are at the forefront for solving this puzzle. These computational…



Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "Tiny Robots"

Mark Miskin (University of Pennsylvania)
- See Zoom link below

After 50 years of Moore’s law, it’s now possible to pack nearly 1 million transistors in the space of a paramecium, enabling tiny systems for sensing, communication, and computation. This radical miniaturization of…
