One of the key results of general relativity is that an astrophysical black hole in equilibrium is uniquely described by just two parameters, its mass and spin. This is called the No-Hair Theorem, a result that is not true in alternative theories of gravity.

Related Upcoming Events:

Hydrodynamic electron flow, where electrons in a conductor flow collectively - akin to a fluid, is a unique signature of strong electron interactions in a material. This effect has been observed in 2D materials, but observations in bulk materials are intriguing as high-carrier density should screen the interactions.

The Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST) on the Vera C. Rubin Observatory will generate a data deluge: millions of astronomical transients and variable sources will need to be classified from their light curves. To study the physics of these objects, or to use them as cosmic beacons to measure the acceleration of the universe, requires classifying the objects into different types.

Related Upcoming Events:

Recent thermal-conductivity measurements evidence a magnetic-field-induced non-Abelian spin liquid phase in the Kitaev material α-RuCl3. In this talk, I will explain how we leverage fermion condensation to propose a series of measurements for electrically detecting the hallmark chiral Majorana edge states and bulk anyons in the spin-liquid phase -- despite the fact that α-RuCl3 is a good Mott insulator.
