Weekly IGC-related Events
Check out this week's events:
Condensed Atomic Molecular Physics (CAMP) Seminar - Quantum Phenomena in the Landau Levels of Atomically-Thin Transition Metal Dicalcogenides
Landau levels offer a neat model system to study emergent quantum phases, owing to the dominating Coulomb interactions and tunable orbital wavefunctions. In atomically-thin transition metal dicalcogenide, the well-resolved and -controlled spin, valley and layer degree of freedom further enriches the physics that can be explored. In this talk, I’ll discuss a few examples in WSe2: first, a bilayer WSe2 allows selective carrier population of the individual layers; when the filling factor of the two layers is an integer number, it manifests as a natural platform for interlayer exciton condensate. Second, a large imbalance in the population of two (pseudo)spins gives rise to spin-dependent transport in partially filled Landau levels - the spin-minority carriers are much less mobile than the spin-majority carriers. We explain such behavior using a polaron picture.

Astro Colloquium - Data At Your Fingertips: Using Citizen Science in Undergraduate Astronomy Classrooms
538 Davey Lab
Molly Simon - With big data on the rise, research teams across a multitude of disciplines are left with more data than they have time to analyze independently. Citizen science is an invaluable tool that involves crowdsourcing aspects of the data analysis process, enabling these research teams to solve problems involving large quantities of data more efficiently while simultaneously taking advantage of the inherently human talent for pattern recognition and anomaly detection.
