Title: Atomic Transitions: Making the leap from postdoc to publishing.

Speaker: Jennifer Robinson, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences

Abstract: Graduate advisors are excellent mentors for students who want to pursue a traditional academic track from postdoc to professorship, but what about those of us who want to go a different route? Jenn Robinson will share her experiences moving from postdoc positions in atomic physics and quantum information to a job as a Recruiting Editor at the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. She’ll talk about how she got where she is today, what helped, and what she wished she’d known while going through the job search.

Title: Generating Macroscopic Quantum Microwave States with a Cooper Pair Laser

Speaker: Miles Blencowe, Dartmouth College

Abstract: We consider a voltage-biased Cooper-pair transistor (CPT) in a high-Q superconducting microwave cavity. When the energy given to a tunneling Cooper pair by the voltage bias is equal to a multiple of the cavity photon frequency, the cavity is pumped to a strongly nonequilibrium state. The cavity photons act back on the CPT, allowing us to enter a regime of strongly correlated electronic-photonic transport. We have observed the effects of photonic backaction on Cooper-pair transport, and see clear evidence for single-emitter lasing in the form of emission dominated by stimulated transport processes. The microwave lasing state is predicted to be strongly non-classical in nature.

Title: The Mechanism of type IA Topoisomerases: From Structural to Single Molecule Studies

Speaker: Alfonso Mondragón, Northwestern University, Molecular Biosciences


Abstract: Topoisomerase I is an important E. coli enzyme that regulates the topology of DNA by removing negative supercoils and catenating/decatenating DNA molecules. Previously we solved the atomic structure of the domain responsible for the DNA strand passage reaction and proposed a mechanism of action for this type of enzymes that explains many of the most salient features of the reaction. To extend and complement our structural work, we used single molecule Magnetic Tweezers studies to reveal that the presence of pauses in between relaxation events is a major feature of the mechanism of topological transformations. In order to determine the origin of these pauses, we recently built a combined Magnetic Tweezers-Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence microscope which can simultaneously report on the topology of DNA and conformation changes of the protein. Using Protein Induced Fluorescent Enhancement we determined that topoisomerase I remains bound during relaxation pauses. Additionally, we observed short bursts of greater fluorescence enhancement correlated to relaxation events, indicating a conformational change in the protein that moves the fluorophore closer to the protein during the relaxation process. We observed more bursts than relaxation events, revealing that not every protein conformational change results in a relaxation event. We infer that the enzyme is constantly changing conformation and attempting to change the topology of DNA, but only succeeds in a fraction of the attempts. The mechanism can be described as a series of attempts to pass one DNA strand through a break in another strand, which generates the pauses, culminating in a successful relaxation event. The experiments demonstrate that conformational changes in a molecular motor can occur with more frequency than successful mechanical steps.

Title: Aero-Resonant Migration: a new disk migration mechanism for small plane


Speaker: Natalia Storch, Caltech


Host: Fabio Antonini

Abstract: Detailed numerical simulations have shown that Type I migration is not a reliable mode of inward migration for small exoplanets, as its magnitude and direction are extremely sensitive to the thermodynamics of the protoplanetary disk. We discuss an alternate migration mechanism, termed Aero-Resonant Migration (ARM), in which small planetesimals undergo orbital decay due to aerodynamic drag and resonantly shepherd planets ahead of them. Using a combination of analytical and numerical calculations, we show that this is a viable migration mechanism, and discuss the conditions under which it dominates. We suggest that ARM may be key to assembling compact exoplanet systems such as Kepler-80.

Title: Vortex Dynamics in Coherently Coupled Bose-Einstein Condensates

Speaker: Alexander Fetter, Stanford University

Abstract: In classical hydrodynamics with uniform density, vortices move with the local fluid velocity. This description is rewritten in terms of forces arising from the interactions with other vortices. For example, two positive vortices experience a repulsive interaction and precess in the positive (anti-clockwise) sense. In contrast, coherent rf Rabi coupling between two components of a Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) acts very differently: for two positive vortices, one in each component, the Rabi coupling induces an attractive interaction. As a result, the positive vortices now precess in the negative (clockwise) sense. In addition, coherent rf Rabi coupling with a single vortex in a two-component trapped BEC induces periodic transfer of vorticity between the two components at the applied Rabi frequency.

Title: Playing Newton: Learning equations of motion from data

Speaker: Ilya Nemenman, Emory University


Abstract: Arguably, the physics’ goal of understanding nature can be formulated as inferring mathematical laws that govern natural systems from experimental data. With the fast growth of power of modern computers and of artificial intelligence algorithms, there has been a recent surge in attempts to automate this goal and to design, to some extent, an “artificial scientist.” I will discuss this emerging field, but will focus primarily on our own approach to it. I will introduce an algorithm that we have recently developed, which allows one to infer the underlying dynamical equations behind a noisy time series, even if the dynamics are nonlinear, and only a few of the relevant variables are measured. I will illustrate the method on applications to toy problems, including inferring the iconic Newton’s law of universal gravitation. I will end with applications to biological systems: modeling calcium dynamics and insulin secretion in pancreatic beta cells, as well as modeling the landscape of possible behavioral states underlying reflexive escape from pain in a roundworm.

"Unveiling the Supermassive Black Hole at Center of our Galaxy"

Abstract: After two decades of diffraction-limited imaging on large ground-based telescopes, the case for a supermassive black hole at the Galactic center has gone from a possibility to a certainty, thanks to measurements of individual stellar orbits. The rapidity with which these stars move on small-scale orbits indicates a source of tremendous gravity and provides the best evidence to date that supermassive black holes, which confront the limit of our knowledge of fundamental physics, do exist in the Universe. Over this time period, tremendous progress in high-angular imaging techniques has allowed precision measurements of the properties of our galaxy's central supermassive blackhole and, in the next few years, will enabled new tests Einstein’s General theory of Relativity in regimes that have never been probed before.

"Our Galactic Center: A Laboratory for Exploring the Physics & Astrophysics of Black Holes"

Abstract: The proximity of our Galaxy's center presents a unique opportunity to study a galactic nucleus with orders of magnitude higher spatial resolution than can be brought to bear on any other galaxy. Over the last decade, we have shown that the environment near a supermassive back hole is quite different than what theoretical models have predicted, which challenges many of our notions of how galaxies form and evolve over time. In particular, young stars are found where none were expected, few old stars are revealed where many were predicted, and a new, unanticipated class of objects have been discovered. As the only supermassive black hole environment in the universe that can be studied via stellar orbits, this environment presents a unique opportunity to explore gravitational dynamics. By continuing to monitor these stars and by pushing on the cutting-edge of high-resolution technology, we will be able to capture the orbital motions of stars with sufficient precision to build direct dynamical models that will provide new insight into the feedback role that black holes play is cosmological models.

"The Monster at the Heart of our Galaxy"

Abstract: Learn about new developments in the study of supermassvie black holes. Through the capture and analysis of twenty years of high-resolution imaging, the UCLA Galactic Center Group has moved the case for a supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy from a possibility to a certainty. This was made possible with the first measurements of stellar orbits around a galactic nucleus. Further advances in state-of-the-art of high-resolution imaging technology on the world’s largest telescopes have greatly expanded the power of using stellar orbits to study black holes. Recent observations have revealed an environment around the black hole that is quite unexpected (young stars where there should be none; a lack of old stars where there should be many; and a puzzling new class of objects). Continued measurements of the motions of stars have solved many of the puzzles posed by these perplexing populations of stars. This work is providing insight into how black holes grow and the role that they play in regulating the growth of their host galaxies. Future measurements of stellar orbits at the Galactic Center hold the promise of improving our understanding of gravity through tests of Einstein Theory of General Relativity in an unexplored regime.

Title: Spin orbit coupling and magnetism in low dimensions for room temperature applications

Speaker: Dr. Christos Panagopoulos, Nanyang Technical University

Abstract: Abstract: Recent developments in thin film growth techniques and in ab initio calculation capabilities have enabled the synthesis of atomically flat surfaces and heterostructures and the prediction of their electronic properties. A common thread across several such thin film materials and heterostructures – heavy metal compounds and multilayers – is that the spin orbit coupling strength at surfaces and interfaces is comparable to the other relevant energy scales, and thus plays a pivotal role. Novel spin-based phenomena emerge often robust to disorder and thermal fluctuations, with much promise for room temperature applications. Notable progress has been made on spin-polarized states at Rashba interfaces, topological insulator surfaces and atomically thin materials. This includes their utility towards generation and conversion of spin currents, the developments on interfacial non-collinear spin textures in magnetic films, and techniques to generate, stabilize and manipulate them in devices. Using magnetic nanoscale topological spin structures as a paradigm, I will demonstrate that the states induced by spin orbit coupling and inversion symmetry breaking open a broad perspective with significant impact in the practical technology of spin and charge topology of the future.
