Quantum Design of Topological Matter

June 12, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

From the discovery of topological insulators to the search for Majorana fermions - topological states of matter have revolutionised condensed matter research. In order to fulfil the promise of topology-based technology in the future, it will be essential to engineer such systems. In particular, I will show how to create topological superconductivity by depositing magnetic atoms on the surface of a conventional superconducting substrate. Such a topological superconductor can host Majorana fermions, exotic quasi-particles which are believed to be useful…

The Arrow of Time: Why is the Future Different from the Past?

July Lectures in Physics Over the past 50 years the July Lectures in Physics have addressed advances in physics. The arrow of time points relentlessly from the past into the future. But what is the arrow of time? What is the role of entropy and the second law of thermodynamics that compels entropy to always increase as time passes and so distinguishes the past from the future? This lecture looks at highlights from 50 years of our July Lectures where…

The Legacy of Stephen Hawking and the Prospects for the Great Reconciliation

July Lectures in Physics This lecture looks at how understanding the very strange physics of black holes, where the fabric of space and time is stretched and distorted, may help us understand the big problem of how quantum mechanics about the very small and general relativity about the very large may be reconciled. Can we say our understanding of the laws of physics is complete? Will this long overdue reconciliation be achieved in the near future? This lecture is part…

The Rise of Cosmology and Particle Physics: Is our Present Understanding of the Universe about to be Replaced?

July Lectures in Physics Over the past 50 years explanations for the origin and evolution of the universe have provided us with new insights into particle physics and the fundamental building blocks of nature. But an understanding of the matter-antimatter asymmetry and the nature of dark matter remain elusive. The next 50 years promises an even deeper convergence of particle physics and cosmology to answer the big questions that will need new physics beyond the Standard Model. This lecture is…

Public Lecture: with Professor Eric Mazur

August 29, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

How would you reimagine education so every child has a better future? In a world that’s changing rapidly we often ask ourselves how we should best prepare the next generation. Schooling and education practices resemble a mixture of long standing conventions, sometimes new ideas, and often familiar approaches. Is the current model and approach fit for purpose? What is that purpose? And if not, what should we do better? How would you reimagine education so every child has a better…
