    6 Nov 2018 12:00 - 13:00 PhD defence ceremony
    Eva Llabrés Llambías focuses on aspects of the AdS/CFT correspondence which are directly relevant to problems in quantum and classical gravity. Specifically, she uses geodesic Witten diagrams, and gravitational ...
  • Interacting Rydberg atoms on a chip
    1 Nov 2018 12:00 - 13:00 PhD defence ceremony
    In recent years, Rydberg atoms have been used for exploring a plethora of interesting quantum phenomena. Their strong, long-range and tunable interaction makes them good candidates for applications in quantum ...
  • Running in the early Universe
    25 Oct 2018 12:00 - 13:00 PhD defence ceremony
    If the Universe evolved from a primordial hot and dense state, the expansion and subsequent cooling led to an inescapable fact: there must exist a ubiquitous radiation, the so-called Cosmic Microwave Background ...
  • Exotic phases of matter in quantum magnets
    18 Oct 2018 14:00 - 15:00 PhD defence ceremony
    In many-body systems, the complex interplay between the particles that make up the system can lead to unexpected collective behaviour, giving rise to exotic phases of matter. Well-known examples of such exotic phases ...
