Brian Zhou University of Chicago, Institute for Molecular Engineering Abstract:  Remarkable progress in the control of atomic-scale systems has confirmed the quantum foundation of our world, as well as inspired new opportunities for technological innovation. Due to its spin-photon interface, the nitrogen-vacancy (NV) center in diamond – a single electron spin at an atomic defect – presents a premier platform for quantum networks, while its long-lived quantum coherence and robust deployability across an extended phase diagram in temperature, field, and…

Serena Eley Los Alamos National Laboratory, Condensed Matter and Magnet Science Abstract:  Though superconductors are revered for their ability to carry dissipation-free supercurrents below a material-dependent critical current (Jc), the seemingly inconspicuous action of vortices can introduce dissipation even for currents well below Jc. In type II superconductors (including high-Tc cuprates, iron-based superconductors, and MgB2) immersed in high enough magnetic fields, vortices are formed by the penetration of magnetic flux and can be moved by current-induced forces and thermal energy.…

Christopher Smallwood University of Michigan Abstract:  Optically active materials are ubiquitous in the modern world. Laser diodes, televisions, and automobile headlights alike rely on the efficient conversion of electrical energy into light. Solar panels and photodetectors rely on the efficient conversion of light into electricity. Recently, there has been much interest from both a technological and scientific perspective in situations where materials absorb or emit light at sharply defined resonances. Among other applications, these resonances open possibilities for using light…

Eric Toberer Colorado School of Mines, Department of Physics Abstract:  The transition from bulky vacuum tubes to solid state transistors in the 1960s heralded the dawn of the information age.   In contrast, we have yet to experience a similar revolution in our ability to control heat.  Today, electricity is primarily produced via mechanical heat engines that drive a generator; likewise, refrigeration is achieved through similar compression cycles.  For the last 200 years, solid state analogs to these mechanical engines have…

Matthew Redshaw Central Michigan University Abstract: The mass of an atom is one of its most fundamental properties, representing the sum of the masses of all the protons, neutrons and electrons that it is made of and, through Einstein’s famous equation E = mc2, the energy required to bind it together. Throughout the history of nuclear physics, atomic mass measurements have played a vital role, from the discovery of isotopes, to the observation of magic numbers and the development of the…

Mahmoud Hussein University of Colorado, Boulder, Smead Department of Aerospace Engineering Sciences Abstract: Thermoelectric materials convert heat into electricity or vice versa through a solid-state process. For the conversion efficiency to be competitive with fluid-based technologies, a thermoelectric material must be a good insulator of heat while, simultaneously, exhibit good electrical properties‒a combination that is hard to find in common materials. Here we present the concept of a locally resonant nanophononic metamaterial (NPM) to overcome this natural trade-off in properties. One…

Frederic Sarazin Colorado School of Mines, Physics Department Abstract:  Most of what we know from our Universe comes from the detection of electromagnetic radiation, from radio waves to high-energy gamma-rays. There are other cosmic messengers however. For decades, we have measured cosmic-rays and neutrinos originating from outside our atmosphere, even though source identification through cosmic-ray and/or neutrino astronomy has remained largely elusive. The fourth cosmic messenger, gravitational waves, has made an explosive entrance in the field in 2015 with almost…

Hannah Jang-Condell University of Wyoming Abstract:  Exoplanets have been discovered in orbits as close as 0.05 AU, and as distant as hundreds of AU.  Hence, exoplanets are a hot topic, and they are also pretty cool.  Because these systems are so different from our own Solar System, they challenge conventional ideas of how planets form.  I will discuss what we can learn about planet formation both by examining the distribution of mature exoplanets as well as by directly studying infant…
