Past Condensed and Living Matter Seminars



Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "Ultrafast manipulation of electronic interactions in quantum materials"

Matteo Mitrano (Harvard University)

Nov 30, 2022 - Nov 23, 2022 at - - See Zoom link

Intense ultrashort electromagnetic fields are an increasingly important tool to realize and control novel emergent phases in quantum materials. Among a variety of nonthermal excitation pathways, a…



Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "TBA"Many-body physics and self-organization with atoms and photons"

Ana Asenjo-Garcia, Columbia University
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A8

Dissipation and fluctuations are known to be sources of order in complex non-linear systems formed by many agents, as they lead to the generation of self-organized spatial or temporal structures. However…



Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "TBA" --- CANCELLED

Patrick Vora ( George Mason University)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory A8



Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "Short stories in fluid dynamics: Thin films, self-similarity, an N-body problem, and particle motions near rough surfaces"

Howard Stone (Princeton University)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A8

In this talk, I provide a glimpse into fluid mechanics and soft-condensed matter flow problems that we have studied in recent years.  In particular, I will first describe experiments of the drainage of a liquid film…



Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "Probing Biological Dynamics: from long-term electrophysiology to high-resolution imaging"

Tian-Ming Fu (Princeton University)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A8

The urgency to probe biological dynamics is impeded by a major challenge: the large dynamic range of biological processes—interactions of molecules within milliseconds can lead to…
