Related Upcoming Events:

Myelin, the lipid-rich sheath which wraps around axons, has complex and unique physical and chemical properties which can be used to produce magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast. Developing MRI to quantitatively measure myelin is vital for monitoring the brain and spinal cord in health and disease. This thesis explores four MRI techniques sensitive to myelin; myelin water imaging (MWI), magnetisation transfer (MT), inhomogeneous magnetisation transfer (ihMT) and diffusion imaging.

Abstract:

ESA's Gaia mission has provided distances to around 1.5 billion stars and revolutionized stellar astrophysics. Gaia has finally revealed the population
of faint white dwarf stars in the solar neighborhood. We use this dataset to answer fundamental questions about the nature of white dwarfs, including their
mass distribution, cooling physics (crystallization), and ultracool white dwarfs. I will highlight the current challenges in the physics of white dwarf stars and
our efforts to solve them.

Abstract:

There is a new class of technologies emerging for observing unmodified proteins in action and at the single molecule level. This colloquium will give an introduction to our nanoaperture optical tweezer approach and overview the developments from other groups also working in the area. I will also review our work on using these nanoapertures to isolate single Erbium emitters in nanocrystals for single photon sources at fiber optic communication wavelengths, and to study resonant energy transfer between two perovskite quantum dots.

Abstract:
Pulsars are rotating neutron stars which emit faint beams of electromagnetic radiation. In pulsar searches large effort is expended to discover these pulses in time- and frequency-resolved data from radio telescopes. Simultaneously recovering the frequency-dependent delay (dispersion) and the periodicity of the signal is a complex and demanding task, which is further exacerbated by the presence of various types of radio-frequency interference (RFI) and observing-system effects.

Abstract:

In this talk, I will discuss how matter systems can lose quantum coherence by interacting with an environment consisting of low-energy photons or gravitons. This process will be illustrated using a simple model of an interferometry experiment. I'll focus particularly on how earlier results - which identified a relationship between "soft" photons/gravitons and boundary terms in the electromagnetic and gravitational matter currents - allows one to easily quantify precisely how much decoherence is caused by "leading" and "sub-leading" soft radiation.

The Standard Model of particle physics is a powerful theory of nature, yet it does not account for all physical observations. Notably, the nonzero masses of the three neutrino flavours and their transformations into one another suggest the need for an extension of the Standard Model. One such extension postulates the existence of Heavy Neutral Leptons (HNLs, N ) — right-handed neutrino states that do not interact with other particles except through mixing with Standard Model neutrinos. HNLs may generate light neutrino masses through the so-called “seesaw mechanism.”

We study the effects of the Peierls electron-phonon coupling in different multi-band systems. In contrast to the more commonly employed Holstein coupling, which is used in single-band models and is momentumindependent, the momentum-dependent Peierls coupling can explicitly treat coupling to multiple bands. Our results demonstrate the importance of using the Peierls coupling in modelling complex systems

Related Upcoming Events:

The electromagnetic and gravitational fields transfer information between physical systems. This work is an attempt to better understand how matter systems communicate quantum information with one another using these fields, and also how quantum information about matter is broadcast into the fields themselves. We study the former process in Part I and the latter in Part II, by answering two distinct but related questions.

Related Upcoming Events:

Electrical conduction becomes non-local when an inhomogeneous electronic distribution is induced with spatial variation shorter than the mean free path (MFP) between momentum-relaxing electronic scattering processes. Two important methods of inducing such a distribution are via the size and skin effects. In the size effect, one or more dimensions of a medium are reduced below the MFP.
