Colloquia


Colloquia

We plan to return partly to in-person talks. These talks will be held in the interim lecture hall B 0.32 at MPQ and can additionally be attended online. Some talks remain online only.

2G regulations apply to in-person talks, i.e. every time you wish to participate in person, you will have to prove, e.g. with the CovPass-App, that you are vaccinated or recovered. Whether facemasks have to be worn inside the lecture hall will be decided on short notice. In any case, you will need a medical facemask in the hallway. Audience not affiliated with MPQ are welcome to join in person as long as they meet 2G criteria.

Details on how to participate online are distributed via the mailing lists [wiss-mpq] and [Mpq-colloquium-stream]. To receive this information, please register using the adjacent link.

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

Quantum stochastic resonance of individual Fe atoms (MCQST-Colloquium) (Prof. Susan Coppersmith)

to be announced [more]

Topological plasmonics: Ultrafast vector movies on the nanoscale (Prof. Harald Gießen)

We present an ultrafast vector microscope with 10 nm spatial and subfemtosecond temporal resolution which is capable of mapping all three vector components of the electric field as well as the magnetic field of light on nanophotonic structures. [more]

Unequal Chances and Hostile Workplaces: Sociological Research on Academic Physic (MCQST-Colloquium) (M.A. Valerie Dahl)

+++ONLINE COLLOQUIUM+++ Infrared photon counting with superconducting nanowires (Prof. Robert Hadfield)

A host of emerging 21st century technologies rely on the ability to detect single photons at infrared wavelengths. Photon counting is an essential tool in quantum optics experiments. Quantum key distribution allows secure communications over long distance fibre optic networks or even from ground to space. [more]

Quantum Photonics – from quantum computing to quantum foundations exploring the quantum-gravity interface (Prof. Philip Walther)

The precise quantum control of single photons, together with the intrinsic advantage of being mobile make optical quantum system ideally suited for various applications, reaching from quantum computing to precision measurements. [more]
