Past Condensed and Living Matter Seminars



Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "Physical Computation in Insect Swarms"

Orit Peleg, University of Colorado
- See Zoom link below

Our world is full of living creatures that must share information to survive and reproduce. As humans, we easily forget how hard it is to communicate within natural environments. So how do organisms solve…



Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "Postpandemic Tool for Quantum Materials (and vice-versa)"

Ken Burch, Boston College

Nov 17, 2021 - Nov 21, 2021 at - David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A8

Raman scattering, invented at the end of the last pandemic, can provide a wealth of information on the fractional, magnetic, lattice and charge excitations at the heart of quantum materials and devices.…



Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "Broken symmetries in living matter"

Nikta Fakhri, MIT
- See Zoom link below

Active processes in living systems create a novel class of nonequilibrium matter composed of many interacting components that individually consume energy and collectively generate motion or…



Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "Twisting nodal superconductors"

Jed Pixley, Rutgers University
- See Zoom link below

The realization of correlated insulators and superconductivity in twisted van der Waals heterostructures has brought forth twisting as a new control knob in condensed matter laboratories. In this talk we…



Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "Quantum optics meets correlated electrons"

Mohammad Hafezi, University of Maryland
- See Zoom link below

One of the key challenges in the development of quantum technologies is the control of light-matter interaction at the quantum level where individual excitations matter. During the past couple of decades…
