In a new devised piece, the cast of HamletGhosts rips apart Hamlet and reconstructs it for a modern audience. Through a series of vignettes mixing Shakespeare with pop songs, clowns, internet help sites, and personal narratives, witness the emotional guts of Hamlet without any of the messy plot. Whether you know exactly what happened to Rosencrantz or donÂ’t even know this Hamlet guy, dive head first into this roudy show. Directed by Cody Holliday Haefner (CC '12), HamletGhosts forces the audience to question their own complicity in the acts of madness and violence played out in front of them. It's a sexy meditation on death with a clown! HamletGhosts is presented by The Brewing Dept., a theater company formed by five Columbia and Barnard College Alumni that focuses on the long-term development of emerging artists' work.

Single-molecule magnets

Speaker: Bonnie Choi (Roy lab)
When: Thursday 08/06 at 4:30 p.m.
Where: NWC, 7th floor meeting room, RM 703
 
Since the first report in early 1990s, single-molecule magnets (SMMs) have attracted considerable interest from scientists in the fields of chemistry, physics, and materials science. SMMs are individual molecules that can function as magnetic particles, and their ability to retain magnetization for long periods of time in the absence of an applied magnetic field makes them one of the most active area of research in nanomagnetism. In addition to interest in the fundamental science of SMMs, a driving force behind the rapid development of this field has been their potential applications in high density data storage, molecular spintronics, and quantum computing devices. In this talk, I will explore several classes of SMMs that span from 3d transition metal to 4f lanthanide coordination compounds and discuss how the design of coordinating ligands can affect SMM behavior. In addition, I will touch on recent developments in the deposition of SMMs onto surfaces, which has ramifications for potential applications.

Seminar: Exciton energy spectrum fine structure and spin dynamics in two-dimensional materials
August 07, 2015 from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm EDT
414 CEPSR

 

 Exciton energy spectrum fine structure and spin dynamics in two-dimensional materials
Dr. Mikhail Glazov, Leading Scientific Researcher
Ioffe Institute, 194021 St.-Petersburg, Russia
Date: Friday, August 7, 2015   ~   Time: 11:00AM   ~  Place:  414 CEPSR

 


Abstract

Polarization dependent optical properties of two-dimensional materials such as transition metal dichalcogenides attract great interest nowadays. In these materials the direct band gaps are formed at the edges of the Brillouin zone in two non-equivalent valleys K+ and K-. Due to strong spin-orbit coupling the electron and hole spin degrees of freedom are locked with their valley states. This makes spin dynamics of individual carriers as well as of their Coulomb-correlated complexes (neutral and charged excitons) quite intriguing.

In my talk the theory of fine structure of exciton energy spectrum and of exciton spin dynamics will be presented. It will be demonstrated that the long-range exchange interaction between an electron and a hole results in simultaneous intervalley transfer of charge carriers forming the exciton. It results in the efficient depolarization of excitons as shown by polarization resolved photoluminescence and pump-probe Kerr rotation experiments. The possibility to preserve exciton circular polarization (also termed as valley polarization) and alignment (termed as valley coherence) in double resonant Raman process involving excited excitonic states is demonstrated.

The effect of magnetic field on excitonic states will also be briefly addressed. The calculations of g-factors within kp-perturbation theory and using tight-binding formalism will be outlined and the role of intra-center contributions to Zeeman effect will be discussed.

The presentation will be based on the following references:

MRSEC Special Seminar: Local Field Control on the Nanoscale and Beyond
August 07, 2015 from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm EDT
750 CEPSR


Prof. Walter Pfeiffer

Fakultät für Physik, Universität Bielefeld, Universitätsstr. 25, 33615 Bielefeld, Germany

Date: Friday, August 7, 2015   ~   Time: 4:00 PM  ~ Place: 750 CEPSR


The combination of optical near-field excitations of nanostructures and multiphoton photoemission electron microscopy (MP-PEEM) has demonstrated its broad applicability to study plasmonic and nanophotonic phenomena with high spatial and temporal resolution. In particular the application of control schemes and pulse shaping techniques has opened possibilities to investigate and control coherent phenomena on the nanoscale [1]. The first part of this overview presentation covers the combination of PEEM and nanoplasmonics, the spatiotemporal control of nanooptical excitations [2], and a new type of nanoscale coherent spectroscopy [3].

In plasmonics commonly a local response is assumed based on a continuum model. At interfaces, or more general on atomic length scales, this description of the dielectric response fails. An incident radiation field induces local fields varying on the atomic length scale. For example the acceleration of photoelectrons excited with an attosecond XUV pulse in a strong IR field, as it is used in streaking spectroscopy from solid surfaces [4], is influenced by this atomic scale field distribution. In the second part of the presentation the present status of attosecond streaking spectroscopy from solids is discussed emphasizing the need to improve the understanding of dynamic field effects at interfaces on the atomic length scale. As an outlook such atomic scale field effects induced by local dipolar modes offer a possibility to extend the control schemes demonstrated for optical near-fields also to interatomic fields.

City, State

Join CCOA members (and their family members) in our annual volunteer opportunity and make a difference! We have chosen MedShare (www.medshare.org), a worthy organization (rated a 4-star nonprofit by Charity Navigator) at which CCOA has volunteered in the past. As its website states, "MedShare has grown into a leader in the field of medical surplus recovery and redistribution supporting the healthcare of hundreds of thousands of people in 95 countries over its 15-year history." A look at its website will provide a sense of the scope of its global outreach efforts, some recent examples of which include providing medical supplies to countries in Africa for the Ebola crisis and to Nepal following the earthquake. CCOA volunteers will sort and package surplus (lightweight) medical supplies to be sent overseas. Family members can come as long as they are at least 10 years old. An orientation takes place at the beginning of the session, so please be sure to arrive on time. RSVP: By August 7th - http://atlanta.alumni.columbia.edu/calendar Info: Taube Ponce '72LIB, tponce1@bellsouth.net

Project management and project leadership are often equated. However, there are major differences in the two.

The use of organizational resources including time, materials, and personnel requires a number of skills.

Participants in this workshop will:

·         Understand the difference between leadership and management and why it is pertinent to project management

·         Understand how self-awareness, the ability to collaborate, creating positive connections relate to the use of influence in project management

·         Learn basic tools for managing time and personnel and keeping to a schedule even in the face of unanticipated obstacles

The full-time program is especially suited for mid-career professionals who may only be able to take off a short time from their current employment. In addition to our economic policy focus, students may opt to focus on global energy management and policy, which offers a very strong set of courses focused on traditional energy markets as well as alternative energy.
