One crucial aspect of a lithium battery is the longterm cycling performance -- to perform with high capacity even after thousands of charge-discharge cycles with as small degradation as possible. One cause for this degradation is the occurrence of small micro cracks in the cathode material due to small volume changes during charge-discharge cycles. To suppress this effect, state-of-the-art batteries today use metallic dopants such as aluminum in the cells of the cathode material. This project investigates other suitable dopants by implementing regression and gradient based prediction models on data acquired from supercomputer simulations using density functional theory (DFT). The results, while not fully conclusive, gives indications on what atomic features of dopants are interesting, as well as validates this relatively new machine learning approach in material science.<br /></div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/physics/calendar/Pages/Disputation-Marcus-Tornso-210924.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/physics/calendar/Pages/Disputation-Marcus-Tornso-210924.aspxMarcus Tornsö, Physics<p>Online via Zoom</p><p>​​Title of doctoral thesis: Plasma Oscillations in Holographic Quantum Matter Follow the presentation online</p>​<span style="font-weight:700">Abstract</span>:<div><br /></div> <div><div>In this thesis we explore strongly correlated matter in the framework of holographic duality. Specifically, we examine the quasinormal modes of such systems, and we extend the current framework to efficiently and naturally cover plasmons and other collective modes that may be found within strongly correlated matter.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>The interest in strongly correlated matter is motivated by the presence of a “strange metal” phase both in high temperature superconductors and in near charge neutral graphene, both being materials of immense scientific interest. The strange metal phase is a phase characterized by the absence of quasi-particles. This implies that conventional methods, such as perturbation theory in quantum field theory and Monte Carlo methods fall short of being able to describe the dynamics. Perhaps surprisingly, string theory provides a novel method, capable of precisely describing such systems - the holographic duality.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>With the holographic duality, strongly coupled matter is mapped onto a weakly coupled gravity theory in one additional dimension, allowing for a conventional treatment of the dual system.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>In this thesis, we extend the existing framework to also describe polarizing media. This is explicitly done in the form of new boundary conditions on the holographic dual, which deviate from previous holographic studies, and we contrast the quasinormal modes previously studied with the emergent collective modes we find for some studied models. We find new results, as well as confirm the predictions of less general models in their respective regions of validity and pave the way for more complex future models.</div></div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/physics/calendar/Pages/Master-thesis-presentation-Fredrik-Soderberg-210924.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/physics/calendar/Pages/Master-thesis-presentation-Fredrik-Soderberg-210924.aspxFredrik Söderberg, Physics<p>Online via Zoom</p><p>​Title of Master thesis: Microstructural study of a conducting polymer doped with carbon nanotubes Follow the presentation online</p><strong>​Abstract:</strong><div>This work concerns the nanostructure of benzimidazobenzophenanthroline, BBL, films doped with carbon nanotubes, CNTs, to increase the electron mobility of the films. The weight frac-tions of CNTs were 1, 9 and 50 wt% respectively. The nanostructures were studied using electron microscopy including scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron mi-croscopy. The morphology of the films gradually changed from a continues BBL film with a relatively rough surface morphology in the 1 wt% films to a structure with randomly orient-ed CNTs with a smooth shell of BBL. The CNTs were multiwalled with a high density of de-fects. The thickness of the BBL shell was about 20-30 nm in the 1 and 9 wt% films and 3-4 nm in the 50 wt% films. The results show that the electron mobility can be further increased by aligning the CNTs that have a considerably higher mobility along their long axis and also compared to the BBL. It should be noted that an alignment of the CNTs would also result in a high directional anisotropy of the mobility in the BBL:CNT films.<br /></div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/research/strong/nano/calendar/Pages/ei_nano_seminar_27_sept.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/research/strong/nano/calendar/Pages/ei_nano_seminar_27_sept.aspxSmallTalks [about Nanoscience] Ultrastrong light-matter coupling<p>TBD</p><p>Welcome to a seminar in the series SmallTalks [about Nanoscience] arranged by the Excellence Initiative Nano​. Adriana Canales Ramos from Nano and Biophysics Lab, Department for Physics will talk about Ultrastrong light-matter coupling. The title for the second part of this seminar will be announced soon.  Join from PC, Mac, Linux, iOS or Android: https://chalmers.zoom.us/j/63018620593</p><div><span style="background-color:initial"><strong>Abstract:</strong></span><br /></div> <p class="MsoPlainText"></p> <p class="MsoPlainText">Light interacts with matter all the time. This interaction allows us to see, study and even control and change the world. Most of those interactions are weak and involve a non-reversible exchange of energy. </p> <p class="MsoPlainText">For example, a material can absorb incoming light and then use that energy for something else. But in some cases, the light and matter can exchange energy reversibly. This means that the electromagnetic field can give energy to the material, which can give it back to the electromagnetic field, and so on and so forth. When this happens, we say that light and matter are strongly coupled. Moreover, if the energy exchange rate is of more than 10% the usual frequency at which the material absorbs light, we say that light and matter are ultrastrongly coupled.</p> <p class="MsoPlainText"> </p> <p class="MsoPlainText">In this popular science talk, I will go through the basics of the response of materials to light and the different regimes of light-matter</p> <p class="MsoPlainText">interaction: weak, strong and ultrastrong coupling.

This can be observed in different scales, from the microscale with bacteria swarming to the macro scale with for example flocks of birds, schools of fish and even human crowds and car traffic.<br />All these systems are made up by self-propelling agents who are able to take up energy from their environment and converting it to directed motion. <br />Because of this<br />property of self-propulsion, their dynamics cannot be explained using conventional methods. Although significant efforts have been made in trying to explain collective behaviours from different perspective, using simulation tools and study systems in different scales as mentioned before, the subject is not as widely studied from the macroscale, especially with artificially made systems. In this thesis, a macroscale system was design with the purpose of providing conditions for collective behaviours to emerge and study how the behaviours changes depending on the surrounding conditions. Battery powered robots were used as self-propelling agents and they were placed in a confined space filled with obstacles. It was shown that when the number of robot and obstacles inside the system is large, the robots movements were significantly restricted. The weight of the obstacles do also affect the average motions of the robots where heavier obstacles hinders the robots by creating blockage leading to the robots having lower average velocity. At certain configuration of the parameters, the robots showed collective behaviours where they for example form channels between the obstacles, making ”roads” for other robots to reuse, or helping each other to move by pushing away chunks of obstacles or pushing onto each other. Even though these robots are simple agents, they have manage to manifest cooperative actions towards other agents.<br /><br /><strong></strong></div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/physics/calendar/Pages/Licentiatseminarium-Isak-Svensson-210929.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/physics/calendar/Pages/Licentiatseminarium-Isak-Svensson-210929.aspxIsak Svensson, Physics<p>Online via Zoom</p><p>​​Title: Efficient sampling of Bayesian posteriors and predictive distributions in χEFT Follow the presentation online​</p>​<strong>Abstract</strong>:<div><br /></div> <div>In this thesis I employ Bayesian statistics to quantify parametric and epistemic uncertainties in chiral effective field theories (χEFT) and propagate these forward to predictions of observables in low-energy nuclear physics. Two primary sources of uncertainty—experimental errors and the theoretical error induced by the truncation of the EFT at up to next-to-next-to-leading-order—are modelled and accounted for in the posterior distributions of the unknown lowenergy constants (LECs) that govern interaction strengths in χEFT. These posteriors are computationally challenging to extract and I therefore introduce an advanced Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithm, known as Hamiltonian Monte Carlo, and investigate its performance. I compare its sampling efficiency to standard MCMC algorithms and find reductions in computation time by factors around 3-6 in the present work. I exploit the extracted posteriors to produce predictive distributions for neutron-proton and proton-proton scattering cross sections below and above the pion production threshold and check the consistency of the model predictions against empirical data and higher-order point estimates. I find that the predictive distributions provide reliable credibility intervals as long as the size of the truncation error is estimated from expansion coefficients at next-to-leading-order and above. The LEC posteriors are also central to uncertainty quantification in few- and manybody systems, and as part of a larger collaboration I explore constraints on three-nucleon forces imposed by light-nuclei observables.<br /></div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/areas-of-advance/health/calendar/Pages/Workshop-diagnostics-imaging-and-AI.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/areas-of-advance/health/calendar/Pages/Workshop-diagnostics-imaging-and-AI.aspxWorkshop: Diagnostics, imaging and AI<p></p><p>Welcome to this workshop!​</p><div><br /></div> <div>Sahlgrenska University Hospital, Sahlgrenska Academy and Chalmers, via CHAIR and Health Engineering Area of Advance, are arranging a workshop to spark collaborations for research into diagnostics, imaging, and AI.

In particular, such forces arise naturally when using chiral effective field theories (χEFT). However, due to the huge computational complexity associated with the inclusion of 3NFs in many-body methods they are often approximated or neglected completely. In this thesis, three different methods to include the physics of 3NFs in the ab initio no-core shell-model (NCSM) have been implemented and tested.  In the first method, we approximate the 3NFs as effective two-body operators by exploiting Wick's theorem to normal order the 3NF relative a harmonic-oscillator Slater determinant reference state and discarding the remaining three-body term. We explored the performance of this single-reference normal-ordered two-body approximation on the ground-state energies of the two smallest closed-core nuclei, ⁴He and ¹⁶O, in particular focusing on consequences of the breaking of translational symmetry.  The second approach is a full implementation of 3NFs in a new NCSM code, named JupiterNCSM, that we provide as an open-source research software. We have validated and benchmarked JupiterNCSM against other codes and we have specifically used it to investigate the effects of different 3NFs on light p-shell nuclei ⁶He and ⁶Li.  Finally, we implement the eigenvector continuation (EVC) method to emulate the response of ground-state energies of the aforementioned A=6 nuclei to variations in the low-energy constants of χEFT that parametrize the 3NFs. In this approach, the full Hamiltonian is projected onto a small subspace that is constructed from a few selected eigenvectors. These training vectors are computed with JupiterNCSM in a large model space for a small set of parameter values. This thesis provides the first EVC-based emulation of nuclei computed with a Slater-determinant basis. After the training phase, we find that EVC predictions offer a very high accuracy and more than seven orders of magnitude computational speedup. As a result we are able to perform rigorous statistical inferences to explore the effects of 3NFs in nuclear many-body systems.​<br /></div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/centres/2d-tech/calendar/Pages/2dtech-oct4.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/centres/2d-tech/calendar/Pages/2dtech-oct4.aspxMass Production of Graphene Oxide (1000 Tons) and Its Applications<p>Online</p><p>Welcome to a 2D-tech talk with Bill Qu from The sixth element (Changzhou) Materials Technology Co., Ltd.

The efficiency of combustion processes for e.g. power generation and aviation can be greatly improved by increasing the operating temperature. This, however, requires development of new and improved materials with increased temperature capability. Similarly, materials which enable e.g. storage of hydrogen or liquid natural gas at cryogenic temperatures can contribute to the above transition. Such high performance engineering materials are usually very complex, with many alloying elements and multiple phases. During deformation the behaviour of the phases, and the grains with different orientations within each phase, is a result of elastic and plastic interactions. Quantifying how the stresses and strains are redistributed within and among the phases is essential for the development of quantitative models capable of accurately predicting the macroscopic mechanical response from the single crystal properties.</span><br /></div> <div><br /></div> <div>This thesis explores the use of in-situ neutron diffraction for investigating load partitioning and deformation mechanisms in two different advanced multi-phase materials, a Ni-based superalloy and a eutectic high entropy alloy, across a wide temperature range (from 20 to 1000 K). For the superalloy, the main findings are: (i) the effect of particle size on the deformation mechanisms and load partitioning was consistent across all temperatures; (ii) plastic deformation of the strengthening phase at high stresses occurred at cryogenic temperatures, which has not been previously reported; and (iii) a strong orientation and phase dependence of the damage evolution during high-temperature deformation was observed. In the eutectic high entropy alloy transitions in the deformation mechanisms of the constituent phases were found to occur with increasing temperature, which lead to a new proposed alloy design strategy for optimising the high temperature properties. Further, the role of the phases is reversed at higher temperatures, i.e. the soft phase at lower temperature becomes the reinforcing phase when the temperature increases. The reported results will have a large impact on the development of accurate multi-scale models for property prediction, as well as development and optimization of complex materials which contribute to a sustainable society.</div> https://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/physics/calendar/Pages/Licentiatseminarium-Adriana-Canales-Ramos-211008.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/physics/calendar/Pages/Licentiatseminarium-Adriana-Canales-Ramos-211008.aspxAdriana Canales Ramos, Physics<p>Online via Zoom</p><p>​​Titel: Strong light-matter coupling: from traditional to cavity-free polaritons</p><strong>Samman​fattning:</strong><div><span style="background-color:initial">Polaritons are formed when light and matter interact strongly. For this to occur, photons and transitions in a material must exchange energy faster than the dissipation rate of the interacting components. Polaritons have shown the ability to change such material properties as photophysics, chemical reaction rates, transport, etc. Most of the studies on strong coupling use an external cavity. These sort of platforms form what here are called traditional polaritons. Moreover, such a cavity is often made of two metallic mirrors, which restrict access to the material.</span><span style="background-color:initial"><div><br /></div> <div>The first part of the thesis is devoted to traditional polaritons in a microcavity-plasmon coupling platform. The versatility of the platform allows to achieve strong and ultrastrong coupling at room temperature. The second part is dedicated to cavity-free or self-hybridized polaritons. Here it is shown that polaritons can be sustained by the material with the transition resonance itself, by reshaping it into simple structures as slabs, cylinders, and spheres. The structures reveal a minimal critical size for polaritons to exist. Moreover, the coupling strength seems to be limited only by the macroscopic optical properties of the material.</div> <div><br /></div></span><span style="background-color:initial">These results can guide the community to quickly realize which materials can be used to form polaritons and to find them in simpler structures. Since the structures are not restricted by an external cavity, a window of opportunity is open for applications and further studies on the impact of polaritons on material properties.</span></div> https://www.chalmers.se/en/research/strong/nano/calendar/Pages/ei_nano_seminar_11_oct.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/research/strong/nano/calendar/Pages/ei_nano_seminar_11_oct.aspxSmallTalks [about Nanoscience] Polymer Brushes<p>TBD</p><p>​Welcome to a seminar in the series SmallTalks [about Nanoscience] arranged by the Excellence Initiative Nano​. John Andersson from Applied Chemistry Lab, Department of Chemistry will talk about Polymer Brushes. The title for the second part of this seminar will be announced soon.  Join from PC, Mac, Linux, iOS or Android: https://chalmers.zoom.us/j/63018620593 ​</p><a href="/SiteCollectionDocuments/SO%20Nano/SmallTalks/Decisiontree_EI_NanoSeminar2021_SC%203.pdf" style="outline:0px"><img src="/SiteCollectionImages/Areas%20of%20Advance/Nano/SmallTalk%20about%20Nanoscience/Decisiontree_EI_NanoSeminar2021_SC%203.jpg" class="chalmersPosition-FloatRight" alt="" style="margin:5px;height:207px;width:150px" />​</a><span style="background-color:initial">In c</span><span style="background-color:initial">ase you are not sure yet, whether you want to attend or not, we have prepared a decision tree that might help you! </span><div><span style="background-color:initial">Click to get a larger picture.</span><a href="/SiteCollectionDocuments/SO%20Nano/SmallTalks/Decisiontree_EI_NanoSeminar2021_SC%203.pdf">​</a><div><p class="chalmersElement-P"><br />​</p></div></div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/physics/calendar/Pages/Disputation-Unni-Engedahl-211015.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/physics/calendar/Pages/Disputation-Unni-Engedahl-211015.aspxUnni Engedahl, Physics<p>Online via Zoom</p><p>​​Title of doctoral thesis: Direct conversion of methane-to-methanol: transition-metal dimers in small-pore zeolites: First-principles calculations and micro-kinetic modelling</p>https://www.chalmers.se/en/centres/2d-tech/calendar/Pages/2dtech-oct18.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/centres/2d-tech/calendar/Pages/2dtech-oct18.aspxGraphene as a multi-functional additive to engineering composites<p>TBA</p><p>Welcome to a 2D-tech webinar with Galiotis Costas, University of Patras, Greece Join from PC, Mac, Linux, iOS or Android: https://chalmers.zoom.us/j/68261745009​ Password: 923613​</p>https://www.chalmers.se/en/research/strong/nano/calendar/Pages/ei_nano_seminar_25_oct.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/research/strong/nano/calendar/Pages/ei_nano_seminar_25_oct.aspxSmallTalks [about Nanoscience] Magnetic Assay<p>TBD</p><p>​Welcome to a seminar in the series SmallTalks [about Nanoscience] arranged by the Excellence Initiative Nano​. Sobhan Sepehri from VIDEM AB and RISE will talk about Magnetic Assay. The title for the second part of this seminar will be announced soon.  Join from PC, Mac, Linux, iOS or Android: https://chalmers.zoom.us/j/63018620593 ​</p><a href="/SiteCollectionDocuments/SO%20Nano/SmallTalks/Decisiontree_EI_NanoSeminar2021_SC%203.pdf" style="outline:0px"><img src="/SiteCollectionImages/Areas%20of%20Advance/Nano/SmallTalk%20about%20Nanoscience/Decisiontree_EI_NanoSeminar2021_SC%203.jpg" class="chalmersPosition-FloatRight" alt="" style="margin:5px;height:207px;width:150px" />​</a><span style="background-color:initial">In c</span><span style="background-color:initial">ase you are not sure yet, whether you want to attend or not, we have prepared a decision tree that might help you! </span><div><span style="background-color:initial">Click to get a larger picture.</span><div><p class="chalmersElement-P">​</p></div></div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/mc2/calendar/Pages/poster_presentation_2021.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/mc2/calendar/Pages/poster_presentation_2021.aspxEI Nano poster day 2021<p>Chalmers campus Johanneberg (exact location to be determined)</p><p>Welcome to the poster day of the EI Nano!

For 1D nanomaterials their natural embodiment is as aligned fibres or fabrics that efficiently exploit the axial properties of their constituents. We work with a method to produce macroscopic solids made of 1D nanostructured directly collected as they grow floating in the gas phase. The resulting ensembles are “macromolecular” networks with many superior properties compared to monolithic materials: fibers of carbon nanotubes have tensile mechanical properties above many high-performance polymer fibers; fabrics of CNTs are ideal built-in porous current collectors to eliminate electron resistance limitations in composite battery electrodes, sheets of silicon nanowires are flexible and have high cyclability as lithium-ion battery anodes. </div> <div style="font-size:14px"><br /></div> <div style="font-size:14px"><span style="font-weight:700">Juan J.

Multifunctionality, for instance integrating energy storage capabilities to structural components, is a key enabling technology in realizing substantial weight savings on the system level. Carbon fibres are widely used as reinforcements in polymer composites, while graphite powders are widely used as negative electrodes in batteries. Thus, using carbon fibres as negative electrodes, together with solid electrolyte and other components, one can build the so-called structural composite batteries. Imaging the doors and hoods of an electric car also store energy! However, almost all carbon fibres were developed from the mechanical point of view; a fundamental understanding on the behaviour of carbon fibres under the dynamic electrochemical and mechanical processes in structural composite batteries, and on the relationship between their performance and microstructure are still largely lacking. We aim to gain a fundamental understanding of carbon fibres in the multifunctional composites.</div> <div style="font-size:14px"><br /></div> <div style="font-size:14px"><span style="font-weight:700">Fang Liu</span> is Associate Professor at the Department of Industrial and Materials Science.
