Our series of Colloquium Talks takes place from October till January and from April till July, on Tuesdays, at 2:30 p.m..

Attention! Due to the recontstruction of the foyer at the MPQ talks will take place at the interims Lecuture Hall in Room B 0.32.

Scientific organization of the talks: Dr. Stephan Dürr and Dr. Thomas Udem

The Alchemy of Vacuum - Hybridizing Light and Matter (Prof. T. Ebbesen)

Strong coupling of light and matter can give rise to a multitude of exciting physical effects through the formation of hybrid light-matter states. [more]

First principles modeling of Light-Matter interactions within QED-TDDFT: From Weak to Strong Coupling in QED-Chemistry and Materials (Prof. A. Rubio)

Computer simulations that predict the light-induced change in the physical and chemical properties of complex systems, molecules, nanostructures and solids usually ignore the quantum nature of light. [more]

Genome editing and the CRISPR/cas revolution (Prof. K. Förstemann)

I will present the origins of the prokaryotic (i.e. bacteria and archaea) CRISPR/cas systems, then describe how one particular variant (Streptococcus pyogenes cas9) has been adapted and optimized for use in eukaryotic cells. [more]

Potential Energy Surfaces and Berry Phases beyond the Born-Oppenheimer Approximation (Prof. E. Gross)

The starting point of essentially all modern electronic-structure techniques is the Born-Oppenheimer approximation. It not only makes calculations feasible, it also provides us with an intuitive picture of chemical reactions. [more]
