Levitated quantum systems can be used to build ultra-precise sensors for use in technology but also to search for new fundamental types of forces and dark matter. In this seminar PhD student Trisha Madhavan from Mikhail Lukin's Nanomechanics subgroup at Harvard University will talk about her work on levitating tiny magnets and coupling them to NV defects in diamond.

Abstract: Climate change poses challenges that urgently require our attention. It threatens to result in major environmental alterations, endangering sensitive ecosystems, water availability, and ultimately food security. In order to ameliorate the effects of climate change, it is crucial that we have an understanding of the biology of the endangered organisms. (...)

Hosted by: Professor Timothy Ravasi, OIST Marine Climate Change Unit

Abstract: Coral reefs serve as a masterclass in ecological efficiency and evolutionary resilience. These highly productive and biodiverse ecosystems exist in one of the most nutrient-poor environments on our planet, a phenomenon known as Darwin’s paradox. At the heart of these ecosystems are reef-building corals that form the structural and trophic foundation. The metabolic symbiosis between corals and their photosynthetic dinoflagellate endosymbionts (...)
