Using Topology to Engineer the Electronic Structure of Bottom-Up Synthesized Graphene Nanoribbons: Nano Seminar Series

Lecture | November 30 | 2-3 p.m. | 390 Hearst Memorial Mining Building

 Prof. Michael F. Crommie, UC Berkeley, Physics Department

 Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute

The idea of classifying materials by their topological properties is useful for predicting their behavior, especially at interfaces between insulators. When a topologically nontrivial insulator (often referred to as a topological insulator) is fused to a topologically trivial insulator then metallic states arise at the interface between them. This concept has been fruitful for 3D and 2D materials...   More >

Designing molecular and nanoscale materials for bottom-up control of magnetism

Seminar | November 30 | 4-5 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall

 Jeffrey Rinehart, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, UC San Diego

 College of Chemistry

Magnetic applications are ubiquitous in modern technology, yet the available materials are relatively limited in number and tunability. Bottom-up design is therefore appealing as it offers the possibility of atomic-level understanding and customization. Magnetic properties, however, often translate poorly between atomic, molecular, nano, and bulk scales. In this seminar, I will discuss our...   More >

Computational complexity lower bounds like P != NP assert impossibility results for all possible programs of some restricted form. As there are presently enormous gaps in our knowledge of lower bounds, a central question on the minds of today’s complexity theorists is: how will we find better ways to reason about all efficient programs?

 Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

A book lying on red satin sheets serves as an appropriate opening image for Visconti’s last work, a film bursting with the abstractions of nineteenth-century philosophy and the concerns of twentieth-century political thought, yet fashioned with all the luxuriant beauty and operatic decadence the master filmmaker could muster.

Bergman’s decision to direct this television play was due in large measure to his love of Victor Sjöström’s The Phantom Carriage, which he claims to have seen at least a hundred times, and the project’s intersection of the worlds of theater and film.
