The extraordinary advances in quantum control of matter and light have been transformative for atomic and molecular precision measurements enabling probes of the most basic laws of Nature to gain a…

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

Hartmut Löwen (Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf)

Physics and Astronomy Colloquium: "The 'Who Ordered That' Collider"

Nathaniel Craig (University of California, Santa Barbara)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A8

In this talk, I’ll survey some of the major open questions in particle physics and make the case that they can best be addressed by a qualitatively new type of particle accelerator: a high-energy muon…

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…
