Magnetic nanostructures

Johnson Center 325

Vemuru abstract: Synthesis and characterization of magnetic nanostructures is an important aspect of research in nanoscience.  In order to improve the characteristics of nanomaterials based devices, it is important to understand the structure property relation as well as the mechanism of the magnetic ordering. In this talk, I will …

Creating Schrodinger’s cat state with Bose-Einstein condensates in multiple wells
Khan Mahmoud, JQI

Planetary Hall, Room 306, 11am (+ lunch after noon)

Quantum superposition principle, when applied to macroscopic objects, gives rise to seeming paradoxes as highlighted by Schrodinger in his famous thought experiment involving dead-and-alive cats. Unlike superpositions of different spin states of an electron, a classical object such …

Superconducting proximity effect: from transport and fluctuations to topological superconductivity”
So Takei, University of Maryland

The study of hybrid structures involving superconducting and non-superconducting materials has recently enjoyed a renewed level of activity. On the one hand, focus is on the physics of superconductor-ferromagnet junctions due to the recent emergence of …
