IPM Calendar 
Monday 23 November 2020   Today  
Events for day: Wednesday 11 November 2020    
           09:00 - 17:00     Workshop
2nd International Workshop on Experimental Particle Physics: Detectors & Applied Electronics


The goal of the workshop is to introduce detectors, and the future developing of electronic readout with its application in particle physics.
We will also review the IPM engagement in designing electronic upgrades for the Muon detector (RPC) of the CMS experiment at the LHC high luminosity operation.

Scattering of electromagnetic waves by an aggregate of gyromagnetic and dielectric spheres: Magnetic tuning of Fano resonances


Scattering of electromagnetic waves by an aggregate of gyromagnetic and dielectric spheres: Magnetic tuning of Fano resonances


We study the interaction of electromagnetic waves with a cluster composed of gyromagnetic and dielectric spheres. We expand the electromagnetic fields in terms of the vector multipole fields and relate the expansion of the scattered field to that of the incident field. We apply this generalized multisphere Mie theory to dimers and hexamers containing one dielectric sphere and similar gyromagnetic spheres. We observe multiple Fano resonances in the extinction, circular exti ...

Star Formation History and Dust Production in the Local Group Dwarf Galaxies


An optical monitoring survey in the nearby dwarf galaxies was carried out with the 2.5-m Isaac Newton Telescope (INT). 55 dwarf galaxies and four isolated globular clusters in the Local Group (LG) were observed with the Wide Field Camera (WFC). The main aims of this survey are to identify the most evolved asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars and red supergiants at the end-point of their evolution based on their pulsational instability, use their distribution over luminosity to reconstruct the star formation history, quantify the dust production and mass loss from modelling the multiwavelength spectral energy distributions, and ...

Quantum optomechanics with 2D materials: Quantum simulation of phase transitions



It is almost two decades now that the first observation on the back-action effects from a mechanical resonator in quantum regime on an optical mode was reported. During these years the community has been working hard to be convincing about the advantages of mechanical systems in quantum states for both quantum foundations and quantum technologies. Despite many successes in the field, e.g. achieving ground state cooling, quantum state transfer, and entanglement, there is still a long path to go which among the others mainly requires multimode systems that are strongly coupled to a control quantum system such as a qubi ...
