Time-reversing a laser: What it means and what it’s good for

Speaker: A. Douglas Stone (Yale University)Host: Alexey Belyanin

Over a decade ago an overlooked symmetry of Maxwell’s equations coupled to matter was discovered.  The linear Maxwell wave equation in the presence of a gain medium can describe a laser at threshold. This is the point at which gain balances loss and the system self-organizes to oscillate coherently at [...]

A Case Study in Nuclear Proliferation – The Iran Nuclear Deal and the Responsibility of Physicists

Speaker: Matthias Grosse Perdekamp (University of Illinois Urbana Champaign)Host: Rainer Fries

The first nuclear weapon was tested in Alamogordo, NM, in July 1945. In the following month, Hiroshima and Nagasaki were destroyed through the explosion of two nuclear warheads. These horrifying strikes directly led to the surrender of Japan almost 4 years after its attack on Pearl Harbor. An industrial scale [...]
