Induced Half-Metallicity and Gapless Topological Superconductivity in the CrI3-Pb Interface

Abstract:

The exploration of topological superconductivity and Majorana zero modes has become a rapidly developing field. Many types of proposals to realize topological superconductors have been presented, and significant advances have been recently made. In this direction, the most progress has been made in probing Majorana zero modes in artificial heterostructures. However, topological superconductivity in 2D has proven to be more elusive, despite the recent discovery of dozens of 2D materials which could form the ...

Accelerator Physics, Challenges and Opportunities

School
PARTICLES AND ACCELERATORS

Abstract: Nowadays, several thousand accelerators are at work around the world in an extensive area of applications, ranging from industrial processes to scientific discoveries. Indeed, today s particle accelerators not only address many of the confronting challenges like energy, environment, economy and industry for the worldwide nations, but also serve as a unique tool to probe/search new physics that govern the universe. In this way, the next generation of colliders and in particular CERN on the front line, play the most important role for the current and ongoing high-energy physics experiments. In this talk, we have a brief overview on th ...

Looking for Black Hole Superradiance in the Sky

ASTRONOMY

Superradiant scattering is a radiation enhancement process that takes place in many contexts, ranging from quantum mechanics to astrophysics. According to general relativity (GR), black hole superradiance is permitted by dissipation at the event horizon that allows for energy, charge, and angular momentum extraction from the vacuum, even at the classical level. In this talk, after a general review of the phenomenon of superradiance, I focus on the proposal proposed in the recent years about testing this phenomenon by the plane electromagnetic and gravitational waves, as two confirmed components of our world. The main message of this talk is t ...

Heat Conduction Characteristics of Nano-confined Gas Medium

School
PHYSICS

Heat transfer characteristics of nanoconfined gas medium are strongly affected by the gas Knudsen number which includes the effects of the gas density and the characteristics channel height. In the slip regime, the solution of the Navier-Stokes equation along with the first and second-order slip boundary conditions provides an acceptable solution in a continuum framework. On the other hand, for the free molecular regime, the solution of the Collisionless Boltzmann equation provides an appropriate picture of the gas characteristics. Between these two limiting conditions, i.e. in the transition regime, there is no robust analytical solution th ...

Group Topologies on Automorphism Groups of First Order Structure

School
MATHEMATICS

Automorphism groups of structures endowed with the topology generated by stabilisers of small subsets are topological groups and indeed when countable they are Polish. In this talk I will discuss different group topologies on automorphism groups of homogeneous structures and especially focus on minimal group topologies. A Hausdorff topological group is called minimal if it does not admit a strictly coarser Hausdorff group topology. I will provide some background, and discuss several classification of group topologies coarser than so called point-wise convergence topology in the case of automorphism groups of the countable random graph and Ur ...
