Seminars

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.
Host: MPQ, IMPRS-QST

The 2nd Law: History and Fiction (Prof. Assa Auerbach)

The 2nd Law: History and Fiction
The talk The 2nd Law: History and Fiction discusses the history of Maxwell’s Demon, the Second Law of Thermodynamics, and its connection to Information Theory. It shows how these concepts can be explained to non-physicists in a comic book of an adventure story called “Max the Demon vs Entropy of Doom’’. [more]

From Newton Nonlocality to Quantum Teleportation (Prof. N. Gisin)

To have an object disappearing from one location, only to reappear somewhere else, without the object ever passing through any intermediate locations, is that possible? [more]

The Art of Presenting Science: Discovering the First Law of Stage Acting (Gijs Meeusen)

In this meeting, we will analyse presenting and performance and develop a model of communication that allows you to substantially improve the way you present. [more]

Designing quantum spin-orbit-coupled materials: a source for exotic excitations (Prof. Roser Valenti)

In the search for novel materials' properties, the generation and manipulation of highly entangled quantum states is a grand challenge of solid state research. [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]
