Tigran Sedrakyan University of Massachusetts, Amherst Abstract: Topologically ordered states, such as the quantum spin liquids, are new states of matter with various exotic properties, including emergent excitations with fractional quantum numbers and fractional statistics, and robust topology-dependent ground state degeneracies. This makes quantum spin liquids promising candidate materials for quantum computers and other transformative low-power electronics that are expected to provide revolutionary changes to how we process and store data. In this talk, I will give an overview of…

Michael Schneider National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) Abstract: Neuromorphic computing promises to dramatically improve the efficiency of certain computational tasks, such as perception and decision making. While software and specialized hardware implementations of neural networks have made tremendous progress, both implementations are still many orders of magnitude less energy efficient than the human brain. This talk will introduce the current state of neuromorphic computing and discuss the recent hardware advances that have bolstered the progress of machine learning. I…

Chadralekha Singh University of Pittsburgh Abstract:  I will discuss, using my research in physics education, how research can be used as a guide to develop curricula and pedagogies to reduce student difficulties. My research has focused on improving student understanding of introductory and advanced concepts, for example, in learning quantum mechanics.  We are developing research-based learning tools such as tutorials and peer instruction tools that actively engage students in the learning process.  I will discuss how we evaluate their effectiveness using a variety of methodologies.…

Maxime Brodeur University of Notre Dame Abstract: The atomic nucleus is a quantum mechanical object that aims at reaching its minimum energy state through various possible types of transitions mediated by fundamental forces of nature. One of the most common type of these radioactive transition, the beta decay, is governed by the weak interaction, one of three interactions included in the Standard Model of particle physics. In my talk I will show how the study of a special class of…

Ana Maria Rey University of Colorado, Physics Department Abstract: Understanding the behavior of interacting electrons in solids or liquids is at the heart of modern quantum science and necessary for technological advances. However, the complexity of their interactions generally prevents us from coming up with an exact mathematical description of their behavior. Precisely engineered ultracold gases are emerging as a powerful tool for unraveling these challenging physical problems. In this talk, I will present recent developments at JILA on using…
