AMO/IQSE seminar: Brain-inspired quantum machine learning
January 31, 2023 11:10 am – 12:30 pm (CDT) MPHY 578 / IQSE Seminar Room
AMO/IQSE seminar: Brain-inspired quantum machine learning

Speaker: Susanne Yelin (Harvard University)

Quantum neuromorphic computing (QNC) is a subfield of quantum machine learning (QML) that capitalizes on inherent system dynamics. As a result, QNC can run on contem- porary, noisy quantum hardware and is poised to realize challenging algorithms in the near term. We show that a present-day programmable quantum simulator has [...]
AMO/IQSE seminar: Coupled electron and nuclear dynamics in molecules revealed by femtosecond x ray and electron pulses and by twisted light
March 21, 2023 11:30 am – 1:00 pm (CDT) MPHY 578 / IQSE Seminar Room
AMO/IQSE seminar: Coupled electron and nuclear dynamics in molecules revealed by femtosecond x ray and electron pulses and by twisted light

Speaker: Shaul Mukamel (University of California, Irvine)

Novel sources of soft and hard X ray pulses  open  up new  windows into electron and nuclear dynamics in molecules with a remarkable combination of temporal, spectral and spatial  resolutions. Twisted light adds additional  remarkable probes of chirality. These new techniques and their  simulation protocols will be surveyed and analyzed [...]
Tools of Quantum Statistical Physics: the Good the Bad and the Ugly
May 16, 2023 11:30 am (CDT) MPHY 578 / IQSE Seminar Room
Tools of Quantum Statistical Physics: the Good the Bad and the Ugly

Speaker: Marlan Scully (IQSE, Texas A&M University)

The density matrix, e.g., the Wigner representation is the gold standard [1]. The Bohm trajectory approach can be badly misleading [2]. The quantum noise operator approach is useful but a bit “ad hoc” [3]. [1] Hillery, M.; O’Connell, R. F.; Scully, M. O.; Wigner, E. P., Distribution functions in physics: [...]
Characterization and Universal Scaling Properties of a Turbulent Atomic Superfluid

Characterization and Universal Scaling Properties of a Turbulent Atomic Superfluid

Speaker: Vanderlei S. Bagnato (IFSC - University of São Paulo, Brazil; Texas A&M University)

Excitation of the trapped BEC can be done through a combination of fields that promote time distortion of the trapping potential.  These excitations can evolve over time, promoting energy migration from the largest to the smallest scales in a process called cascade. We perform temporal excitations that consist of deformation [...]
Photodynamic: From Cancer treatment to breaking down the resistance to antibiotic  (or Why Physics is important for health care?)
June 6, 2023 11:30 am (CDT) MPHY 578 / IQSE Seminar Room
Photodynamic: From Cancer treatment to breaking down the resistance to antibiotic (or Why Physics is important for health care?)

Speaker: Vanderlei S. Bagnato (IFSC - University of São Paulo, Brazil; Texas A&M University)

I will be speaking about my project in BME-TAMU and my work in Brazil involving Biophotonics for cancer and microbial control. We will discuss the instrumental and clinical development for the implementation of PDT, ranging from cancer to microbiological control with applications in the fight against infections with antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
