Physikalisches Kolloquium

Institut für Kernphysik

16:15 Uhr s.t., HS KPH

Prof. Angela Wittmann, JGU Institute for Physics
Controlled manipulation of a system allows for systematic investigation of the underlying interactions and phenomena. Simultaneously, tunability also enables the development of novel materials systems and devices customized for specific applications. Here, we will focus on materials systems that conventionally have not been used as active components in spintronic devices. We will explore the impact of strain on the antiferromagnetic domain structure via magneto-elastic coupling1. Furthermore, we will delve into hybrid molecule-magnetic interfaces. Molecules offer a unique way of controlling and varying the structure at the interface making it possible to precisely tune the spin injection and diffusion by molecular design2. In particular, chirality has gained recent interest in the context of the chiral-induced spin selectivity effect3. Here, we will explore signatures of spin filtering at a non-magnetic chiral molecule-metal interface paving the path toward novel hybrid spintronics.

According to the inflationary theory of cosmology, most elementary particles in the current universe were created during a period of reheating after inflation. In this talk I will show how to self-consistently couple the Einstein-inflaton equations to a strongly coupled quantum field theory (QFT) that is described by holography. I will then use a specific example to demonstrate that this setup leads to an inflating universe, a reheating phase and finally a universe dominated by the QFT in thermal equilibrium. This talk is based on arXiv:2302.06618.

PRISMA+ Colloquium

Institut für Physik

13:00 Uhr s.t., Lorentz-Raum, 05-127, Staudingerweg 7

Prof. Robert Wilson, Colorado State University, USA
Forty years ago as an undergraduate contemplating graduate school in high energy physics, the referent declined a research assistantship to work on a neutrino experiment because neutrinos weren’t interesting … they were massless and weakly interacting so produced frustratingly few events to analyze even in massive detectors. How things have changed! The more we learn, the more we realize the importance of the most abundant known matter particle in the universe. In the decades since my naïve snubbing of this intriguing particle we have developed a well-established three-flavor paradigm that may help explain the matter-antimatter asymmetry of the universe. Yet beyond that, a few intriguing measurement “anomalies” hint at the existence of something stranger still, a neutrino that does not interact via any known forces except gravity, a sterile neutrino. Robert Wilson will give a brief overview of the results that motivated a definitive search for sterile neutrinos with a mass in the 1 eV/c2 range – the Short-Baseline Neutrino program at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. He will describe the physics sensitivity and the detectors that will measure the appearance of electron-type neutrinos in a muon-type neutrino beam using massive liquid argon time-projection chambers with an emphasis on the 760-ton far detector developed by the ICARUS collaboration. Operating both in Italy’s Gran Sasso underground laboratory and now at Fermilab, this detector demonstrated the viability of the technology for large-scale experiments such as the international Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE).
