The Nobel Prize in Physics 2017: LIGO and gravitational waves

“Come hear from UQ’s Warwick Bowen and Tamara Davis about the details of the Nobel 2017 winning science — how the measurement challenges were overcome, and what gravitational waves can teach us about black holes and fundamental physics.”

Using qubits as a tool in materials science: unravelling the mystery of two-level defects in amorphous solids

Using qubits as a tool in materials science: unravelling the mystery of two-level defects in amorphous solids

“At present the microscopic origin of the defects in superconducting circuits remains a mystery, but recent experimental and theoretical results are bringing us closer to an answer.”

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.”
