Physics Chat

The Physics Chat meeting series is intended to provide a common platform for discussions and presentations of recent developments within the condensed matter and photonics group, and is a forum for all members of the groups, from project students to group leaders.

The meeting is held fortnightly on Fridays at 15:00. It lasts typically 1 hour, with a presentation of 15-45 minutes.

Cuurently, the virtual venue is on Zoom and the meeting ID is: 825 1381 7850, password is: 322173, link:https://cardiff.zoom.us/j/82513817850?pwd=NU5HUkpHN1d3U2VoVmRaWDF4M1hMZz09

CMP principal investigators have been grouped in groups of 2 in order to arrange the rotation. The sequence is listed below. The post-docs and students belonging to the groups indicated that particular week will organise who will speak from each group. It is the responsibility of the groups (students and postdocs) to come up with a title and email it to Dr Bo Hou ahead of time!!. The groups are:

Week 0 (Qiang Li)- Speaker Cristian Messina -24th Sep 2021

Title: Selective confined epitaxy of III-V nanostructures on silicon for advanced photonic devices

Week 2 (Qiang Li)-Speaker Bogdan Ratiu-8th Oct 2021

Title: Two approaches to enable III-V/Si integration: quantum dots and tunnel epitaxy

Week 4 (Egor Muljarov)-Speaker Shaikhah Almousa-22nd Oct 2021

Title: Varying the medium surrounding an optical resonator: An efficient and rigorous way to calculate its spectral changes

Week 6 (Egor Muljarov)-Speaker Liubov Sirkina-5th November 2021

Title: Phonon-induced dephasing of a non-linear response in a quantum dot-cavity system

Week 8 (Sam Ladak)-Speaker Edward Harding-19th Nov 2021

Title: TBC

Week 10 (Sean Giblin)-Speaker Clara Cafolla-Ward-03th Dec 2021

Title: TBC

Week 12 (Daryl Beggs)-Speaker Cobi Maynard-17th Dec 2021

Title: Gallium Nitride integrated photonics manufacture and characterisation

This is a rolling series of events so please keep on top of it!
