Events: Fysik events at Chalmers University of TechnologyTue, 21 Jul 2020 22:14:24 +0200 Hesslow, Physics<p>Online via Zoom</p><p>​Title of doctoral thesis: &quot;Kinetic modeling of runaway-electron dynamics in partially ionized plasmas&quot;.</p><strong>​Abstract:</strong> To be announced. on Prospects of Ultrastrong light-matter interactions<p>Hjortviken conference centre</p><p>​Ultrastrong coupling between light and matter has been a topic of immense studies over the last decade. Already, ultrastrong and deep strong coupling regimes have been experimentally achieved in a variety of platforms (intersubband polaritons, THz-resonators, superconducting circuits, optomechanics, plasmonic cavities, etc.). Nowadays, the focus of the community is shifting to observing the rich and exotic phenomena predicted before, which are promising for future quantum technologies. Such as; breakdown of the Purcell effect, optical higher order processes, polariton and QED chemistry, among others.​ ​</p>​<span style="background-color:initial">This workshop aims at gathering researchers from the USC community, working in interdisciplinary </span><span style="background-color:initial">related fields, to shed light upon where the field is now and where it is heading. The objectives </span><span style="background-color:initial">are to stimulate discussions on the latest developments in different platforms for USC, as </span><span style="background-color:initial">well as to encourage exploration of the prospects of the field.

The organizers will be back with a new date during autumn 2020. Professor Anne L’Huillier, Lund University, Sweden is the winner of the Gothenburg Lise Meitner Award 2020. She will visit the Gothenburg Physics Centre to receive the award and give the traditional award lecture in honour of the Austrian-Swedish physicist Lise Meitner. ​ Professor L’Huillier receives the award “For pioneering contributions to attosecond laser science and technology”. ​</p><img src="/SiteCollectionImages/Centrum/Fysikcentrum/Gothenburg%20Lise%20Meitner%20Award/Lise%20Meitner%202020/150_Anne_H_.jpg" class="chalmersPosition-FloatRight" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:110px;height:146px" />Professor Anne L'Huillier has been at the forefront of ultrafast laser science since its inception, with her pioneering contributions to high-order harmonic light generation, which is a base technology for attosecond science. Her research has helped foster the field of attosecond science, allowing scientists to visualize the movements of electrons in light-induced processes, which can be used to understand chemical reactions on the atomic level.​<br /><br /><a href="" target="_blank"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/ichtm.gif" alt="" />Read more about<strong> </strong><span style="font-weight:300"><strong>Professor L'Huillier's</strong> </span>research​</a><br /><a href="/en/centres/gpc/activities/lisemeitner/Pages/default.aspx" target="_blank"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/ichtm.gif" alt="" />Read more about The Gothenburg Lise Meitner Award and previous laureates​​</a>
