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

  • (online)
  • Date: Mar 29, 2022
  • Time: 11:00
  • Speaker: Prof. Susan Coppersmith
  • University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia
Stochastic resonance, where noise synchronizes a system’s response to an external drive, is a phenomenon that occurs in a wide variety of noisy systems ranging from the dynamics of neurons to the periodicity of ice ages. This talk will present theory and experiments on a quantum system that exhibits stochastic resonance — the quantum tunneling of the magnetization of a single Fe atom measured using spin-polarized scanning tunneling microscopy.
