Past Department Colloquia



Physics and Astronomy Colloquium: "Using Deep Learning as a Last Resort?!"

Shirley Ho (Flatiron Institute)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A8

For the last 10 years, we have seen a rapid adoption of deep learning techniques across many disciplines, ranging from self-driving vehicles, credit card rating to biomedicine. Along with this wave, we…



Physics and Astronomy Colloquium: "How behavioral and evolutionary constraints sculpt early visual processing"

Stephanie Palmer (University of Chicago)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A8

Biological systems must selectively encode partial information about the environment, as dictated by the capacity constraints at work in all living organisms. For example, we cannot see every feature of…



Physics and Astronomy Colloquium: "The Magic of Moiré Quantum Matter"

Pablo Jarillo-Herrera (MIT)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A8 - Also see Zoom link below

PLEASE NOTE THAT MASKING IS REQUIRED IF YOU ARE ATTENDING IN PERSON.  THE COLLOQUIUM IS ALSO AVAILABLE VIA ZOOM



Physics and Astronomy Colloquium: "Super-resolution imaging of transcription in living cells" - CANCELLED

Ibraham Cissé (Max Planck Institute)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A8

We will discuss the latest efforts in our laboratory to develop highly sensitive methods of microscopy, to go directly inside living cells and uncover the behavior of single biomolecules as…



Primakoff Lecture: “From Nonlinear Optics to High-Intensity Laser Physics”

Donna Strickland (University of Waterloo)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A8

The laser increased the intensity of light that can be generated by orders of magnitude and thus brought about nonlinear optical interactions with matter. Chirped pulse amplification, also known as CPA, changed the…
