Alexander Bogan

Title:   Investigations of InAsP/InP Semiconductor Devices for Quantum Communication Technologies

Thursday, December 11, 2014 — 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM EST

Alyson Brooks
Assistant Professor, Department of Physics & Astronomy
Rutgers, the State U of NJ

Wednesday, December 10, 2014 — 11:30 AM EST

This week we have Federico Urban (Université Libre de Bruxelles) who will tell us about:

UHECR anisotropies and magnetic fields

Ultra-High-Energy Cosmic Rays are --- finally! --- showing some signs of life on the anisotropy front. I will first review the status of anisotropy searches with Telescope Array. We will then look at our joint harmonic analysis with the Pierre Auger Observatory, with special emphasis on the rôle played by the Galactic magnetic field.

Wednesday, December 3, 2014 — 8:00 PM EST

The Observatory is open for public tours usually on the first Wednesday of each month, offering a chance to look through the university's telescope. This will be preceded by a short talk on astronomy (around 30 minutes) plus an opportunity to ask questions, followed by a tour of the dome. In the event of bad weather, the observing will not be possible, but the talk and tour of facilities will go ahead.

Title:  Topics on the Information Theoretic Limits of Quantum Information Processing and its Implementation

Thursday, November 13, 2014 — 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM EST

Robert Brandenberger
Department of Physics, McGill University

Abstract

Our scenarios of very early universe cosmology are incomplete. In particular, they are plagued by singularities. Superstring theory provides the hope of being able to resolve these singularities and provide a complete theory of the very early universe. I will discuss a model of early universe cosmology based on fundamental principles of string theory and will show that this model can be tested with current and upcoming cosmological observations.
