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.

Quantum Emitters in Non-Conventional Baths (European Research Council)

SDP relaxations for the certification of properties of many-body quantum states

SDP relaxations for the certification of properties of many-body quantum states (Flavio Baccari)

Understanding the properties of many-body systems is one of the crucial questions for the development of quantum technologies. An ubiquitous problem is to certify that a given many-body quantum system satisfies an operational property: is this given system in an entangled state? Does it contain the solution to a classical optimisation problem? [more]

Entanglement in non-unitary critical spin chains

Entanglement in non-unitary critical spin chains (Romain Couvreur)

Entanglement entropy has proven invaluable to our understanding of quantum criticality. It is natural to try to extend the concept to “nonunitary quantum mechanics”, which has seen growing interest from areas as diverse as open quantum systems, noninteracting electronic disordered systems, or nonunitary conformal field theory (CFT).

Entanglement Renormalization for Weakly Interacting Fields

Entanglement Renormalization for Weakly Interacting Fields (Ali Mollabashi)

I will introduce a specific method how to generalize cMERA in presence of interactions. The method is based on Hamiltonian renormalization of spatial degrees of freedom. Using this method I will work out a circuit starting from an appropriate IR state and ending up with the vacuum state of phi^4 theory. [more]

Arrival time distributions and spin in quantum mechanics-A Bohmian perspective (Siddhant Das)

Arrival time distributions and spin in quantum mechanics-A Bohmian perspective (Siddhant Das)

The arrival time statistics of spin-1/2 particles governed by Pauli's equation, and defined by their Bohmian trajectories, show unexpected and very well articulated features. Comparison with other proposed statistics of arrival times that arise from either the usual (convective) quantum flux or from semiclassical considerations suggests testing the notable deviations in an arrival time experiment, thereby probing the predictive power of Bohmian trajectories. The suggested experiment, including the preparation of the wave functions, could be done with present-day experimental technology. [more]
