The Inside-Out Planet Formation (IOPF) theory proposes that close-in super-Earth planets<br />form in situ at the pressure maximum associated with the Dead Zone Inner Boundary (DZIB). The<br />chemical composition of pebbles and gas reaching this location would in<br />uence that of such planets:<br />both the planetary cores and any primordial atmosphere.<br />Aims. Our goal is to develop a combined model of physical and chemical evolution of protoplanetary<br />disk midplanes that follows gas advection, radial drift of pebbles and gas-grain chemistry to predict<br />the abundances of species from outer disk scales of up to 300 AU down to the small scales of the DZIB<br />near 0.1 AU.<br />Methods. We adopt a steady, thin, accretion disk structure that yields midplane properties (tem-<br />perature, density, etc.) for dierent accretion rates m_ in the range 10&#1048576;8 to 10&#1048576;9 M&#12; yr&#1048576;1 and a<br />viscosity parameter = 10&#1048576;4. A full chemical network including gas-phase, gas-grain/pebble inter-<br />actions and grain-surface chemistry evolves the composition of each radial location, which is coupled<br />with continuous gas and pebble transport for a duration of t = 105 years. Initial abundances are set<br />by assuming some prior chemical evolution at temperatures &lt; 20 K. The eect of dierent grain sizes<br />is also investigated.<br />Results. We find pebble drift has a large in<br />uence on the overall solid to gas ratio in the disk<br />midplane. This is most significant for models with large pebble sizes. It was found that the choice<br />of abundances for initial and boundary conditions can have a strong impact on the final composition<br />delivered to the inner region. We find that C and up to 90 % of O nuclei start locked in CO and O2 ice,<br />which keeps abundances of other species like CO2 and H2O one order of magnitude lower. Volatiles'<br />gas phases have their abundances enhanced by up to an order of magnitude at their respective iceline<br />locations due to the radial drift of icy pebbles. Gas advection then brings these species to the hot inner<br />disk. These region, with fastest gas advection velocities, show the largest dierences in abundances<br />compared to static models. CO2, which does not form close to the DZIB, is rather transported there<br />by this process. Lower accretion rates yield lower disk temperatures, which aects icelines' locations<br />by shifting them closer to the star. While transport does modify the C/O ratio for gases and solids, we<br />find that other model assumptions related to initial/boundary conditions and pebble size distribution<br />have an even larger influence.<br />Conclusions. We have demonstrated the importance of the combined physical and chemical evolution<br />to understand the composition of pebbles and gas for planet formation. In particular, we have explored<br />the sensitivity of key metrics, such as solid and gas phase element ratios to the choices of initial and<br />boundary conditions of such models.<br /><br /></div>https://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/fysik/kalendarium/Sidor/Masterpresentation-Alfred-Stenseke-210923.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/fysik/kalendarium/Sidor/Masterpresentation-Alfred-Stenseke-210923.aspxAlfred Stenseke, MPAPP<p>Online via Zoom</p><p>​Titel på masterarbete: Predicting physical properties of NCMM cathode material using machine learning guided DFT simulations Följ presentationen online Lösenord: 399281</p><div><strong>​Sammanfattning: </strong><br /></div> <div>With the rapid increase in development of electric vehicles and energy storage systems over the last decades, the demand for long lasting batteries with high energy density is higher than ever before. 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/sv/institutioner/fysik/kalendarium/Sidor/Disputation-Marcus-Tornso-210924.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/fysik/kalendarium/Sidor/Disputation-Marcus-Tornso-210924.aspxMarcus Tornsö, fysik<p>Online via Zoom</p><p>​Titel på doktorsavhandling: Plasma Oscillations in Holographic Quantum Matter Följ presentationen online ​</p>​<strong>Sammanfattning</strong>:<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/sv/institutioner/fysik/kalendarium/Sidor/Masterpresentation-Thomas-Suphona-210927.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/fysik/kalendarium/Sidor/Masterpresentation-Thomas-Suphona-210927.aspxThomas Suphona, Fysik<p>Online via Zoom</p><p>​Titel på masterarbete: Collective behaviors of autonomous robots in complex environment Följ presentationen online Meeting ID: 685 1796 9304 Lösenord: 080939</p><div><strong>​Sammanfattning:<br /></strong></div> <div>Collective behaviours or collective motion is a common phenomena in nature where multiple organisms in a system undergo ordered movements. 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/sv/institutioner/fysik/kalendarium/Sidor/Licentiatseminarium-Isak-Svensson-210929.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/fysik/kalendarium/Sidor/Licentiatseminarium-Isak-Svensson-210929.aspxIsak Svensson, fysik<p>Online via Zoom</p><p>​Tite​l: Efficient sampling of Bayesian posteriors and predictive distributions in χEFT Följ presentationen online</p>​<strong>Sammanfattning</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/sv/styrkeomraden/halsa-och-teknik/kalendarium/Sidor/Workshop-diagnostik-bildbehandling-och-AI.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/sv/styrkeomraden/halsa-och-teknik/kalendarium/Sidor/Workshop-diagnostik-bildbehandling-och-AI.aspxWorkshop: Diagnostik, bildbehandling och AI<p></p><p>​Välkommen till denna workshop!​​</p><span style="background-color:initial"><br /></span><span></span><div>Sahlgrenska Universitetssjukhuset, Sahlgrenska akademin och Chalmers, via CHAIR och styrkeområde Hälsa och teknik, arrangerar en workshop för att initiera forskningssamverkan inom diagnostik, bildbehandling och  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.​<div><br /></div> </div>https://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/fysik/kalendarium/Sidor/Disputation-Nitesh-Raj-Jaladurgam-211008.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/fysik/kalendarium/Sidor/Disputation-Nitesh-Raj-Jaladurgam-211008.aspxNitesh Raj Jaladurgam, fysik<p>Online via Zoom</p><p>​Titel på doktorsavhandling: Deformation mechanisms and load distribution in multi-phase engineering materials</p>https://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/fysik/kalendarium/Sidor/Licentiatseminarium-Adriana-Canales-Ramos-211008.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/fysik/kalendarium/Sidor/Licentiatseminarium-Adriana-Canales-Ramos-211008.aspxAdriana Canales Ramos, fysik<p>Online via Zoom</p><p>​Titel: Strong light-matter coupling: from traditional to cavity-free polaritons</p>https://www.chalmers.se/sv/styrkeomraden/material/kalendarium/Sidor/Materials-for-Tomorrow-2021.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/sv/styrkeomraden/material/kalendarium/Sidor/Materials-for-Tomorrow-2021.aspxMaterials for Tomorrow 2021<p>Online</p><p>​SAVE THE DATE: The topic of the 2021 Materials for Tomorrow is &quot;Additive Manufacturing – From academic challenges to industrial practice&quot;.The event will take place online, 17 November, 09:00-16:00, with several internationally recognised speakers.

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><br /></div> <div><b>Fang Liu</b> is Associate Professor at the Department of Industrial and Materials Science.
