On an irregular basis various Special Seminars take place at the MPQ. The seminars are organized by scientists of our divisions, administration or staff representatives.

The location will be announced with the event.


Acoustic Control of Light and Matter on a Chip (Prof. H. Krenner)

Phonons, the quanta of mechanical vibrations mediate the propagation of sound and heat in condensed matter. [more]

Nonreciprocity and modulation in optomechanics (Dr. Daniel Malz)

Nonreciprocal devices such as circulators or isolators are essential devices in signal processing. [more]

Dipolar quantum gases and liquids (Prof. T. Pfau)

Dipolar interactions are fundamentally different from the usual van der Waals forces in real gases. [more]

Quantum key distribution networks and their applications for blockchain technologies (A. Fedorov)

The blockchain is a distributed ledger platform with high Byzantine fault tolerance, which enables achieving consensus in a large decentralized network of parties who do not trust each other. [more]

PostDoc Talks - Max Planck Harvard Research Center for Quantum Optics
