Imaging the Surface States of a Strongly Correlated Topological Insulator

Imaging the Surface States of a Strongly Correlated Topological Insulator

“I will give a general introduction to topological materials, and show the first direct proof of a strongly correlated topological insulator.”

Dark Matter, First Light

Dark Matter, First Light

“I will give an update on the quest to identify dark matter both in the lab and in the sky, major unsolved problems in dark matter theory, and how upcoming observations of the epoch of the first cosmic structures can be used to open a new window on the dark universe.”

Fundamental Tests with Antihydrogen Atoms

Fundamental Tests with Antihydrogen Atoms

“Motivated by the baryogenesis problem (the scarcity of antimatter in the University), CERN’s ALPHA collaboration has been studying the properties of antihydrogen atoms. This talk will describe how we trap antihydrogen, and discuss our physics results.”

What Does Quantum Mechanics Have To Do With The Chemical Industry? Reflections On A Journey From Pure To Applied Research.

What Does Quantum Mechanics Have To Do With The Chemical Industry? Reflections On A Journey From Pure To Applied Research.

“This talk will discuss some of the joys, trials and challenges of adapting from a background in pure science to a career of applied research…”
