LASSP & AEP Seminar by Professor Andrea Cavalleri

Tuesday, April 18, 2023 at 12:20pm to 1:30pm

Clark Hall, 700
Central Campus

Andrea Cavalleri
Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter,  University of Oxford Department of Physics

Recent Progress in Driven Superconductivity

Professor Cavalleri will discuss how irradiation of certain quantum materials with coherent electromagnetic radiation at Tera-Hertz and mid-infrared frequencies can induce transient high temperature states that have striking similarities with equilibrium superconductors. These phases are observed at base temperatures as high as room temperature, underscoring the ability to impress coherence with light. This talk will also cover his group's search for new experimental methods that enable the characterization of these transient phases, to measure optical, structural, electrical and magnetic properties at very fast speeds.

Hosted by Ankit Disa
