Q(uantum) Club seminar series aim to bring together researchers in the NYC area to discuss their latest research and recent works on quantum physics, quantum phenomena, and quantum technology in an informal setting. Each talk is given by a student or postdoc and is aimed to build a research network among the younger generation and promote collaborations. The talks are open to everyone and location will alternate between NYU and Columbia. Please pass this email to your students and postdocs.

If you have any questions regarding the seminar or like to nominate/volunteer a speaker, please contact us.

For NYU events, you need to sign up simply by sending me your first/last name and your institution. We will compile the list so you can enter the building.


Fourth Meeting: Tuesday May 22nd 2018

Location: NYU, 726 Broadway, New York, NY

Room: Conference room #1067 (10th floor)

12-12:30 pizza lunch sponsored by Quantum Design

12:30-1:30pm seminar

Title: Mott insulators out-of-equilibrium

Speaker: Hugo U. R. Strand, Center for Computational Quantum Physics, Flatiron Institute, New York

Abstract: Understanding and controlling the real-time dynamics of strongly

correlated electron systems driven out of equilibrium is a formidable

experimental and theoretical challenge. In this talk I will present

some recent theoretical progress on the pump-probe dynamics of single

and multi-orbital Hubbard models using non-equilibrium real-time

dynamical mean-field theory. In particular, the doublon dynamics of the transition-metal

dichalcogenide 1T-TaS2 observed in time-resolved pump-probe photo

emission spectroscopy [1], the anti-screening effects driven by

non-local interactions [2], cooling from local spin dynamics [3,4],

and symmetry breaking enhancement and control [5,6], will be
