Wednesday 14 May 2014

CfAI Seminar Programme

12:00pm to 1:00pm, OC218 (Ogden Conference Room)

Prof. Joseph Samuel, Raman Research Institute, India:

'Surface tension and the Cosmological Constant'

Further details: Abstract: We explore an analogy between the surface tension of fluid membranes and the cosmological constant. This analogy is based on the standard relation between statistical mechanics and quantum physics. We discuss the possibility that the observed small nonzero value of the cosmological constant is actually a quantum gravity effect. Pursuing the analogy, a small statistical fluctuation surface tension of fluid membranes is related to a small quantum fluctuation of the cosmological constant.

Monday 12 May 2014

CfAI Seminar Programme

3:00pm to 4:00pm, OC218 (Ogden Conference Room)

Professor Supurna Sinha, Raman Research Institute, India:

'Entanglement Control via Geometric Phase’ Further details: Abstract: The talk concerns a polarised intensity interferometry experiment realization based on a theoretical proposal for measurement of the nonlocal Pancharatnam phase acquired by a pair of Hanbury Brown-Twiss photons. The setup involves two polarised thermal sources illuminating two polarised detectors.

Varying the relative polarisation angle of the detectors introduces a two photon geometric phase. This sheds light on control of entanglement via the geometric phase.
