Moments in Materials - Jia Chen

Location:Morningside Campus
Room 602 NW Corner Building
550 West 120th Street
New York, NY 10027
Contact:For further information regarding this event, please contact Dani Farrell by sending email to mdf2105@columbia.edu .

Please join us for the LAST Moments in Materials (MiMs) this summer!

Speaker: Jia Chen (Marianetti Group)
When: Thursday 08/21 at 4:30 p.m.
Where: NWC, 6th floor meeting room, RM 602

Strongly correlated materials can exhibit a wide range of interesting properties. However, understanding and predicting behaviours of these materials is very challenging from a theoretical standpoint. As the state of the art theoretical method for strongly-correlated systems, dynamical mean-field theory (DMFT) has provided us insight on various materials and phenomena. Recently, promising progress has been made in generalizing DMFT to chemical systems. Utilizing DMFT as electronic structure calculation method, we studied a spin-crossover molecule: Fe(phen)2(NCS)2. In general, good correlation between theory and experiments were achieved for measurables including magnetic susceptibility, x-ray adsorption spectroscopy, and total energy. The metal-to-ligand bond length was identified as the control parameter for spin state.

Info:Click Here to Visit Website.

The Mentoring Committee and Young Alumni Committee of the Columbia University Alumni Club of Long Island would like to invite all alumni to a career development discussion with Bob Goldfarb (GS '54) on Thursday, August 21 at 7:00 pm at the Bryant Library in Roslyn, NY (located at 2 Papermill Road, Roslyn, NY). Bob leads a management consulting firm with clients on five continents. His book, "What's Stopping Me From Getting Ahead?" is now in five languages. He has written articles for the "New York Times" Sunday Business section on the current workplace and job market. Bob meets regularly with hiring officials of corporations and non-profit organizations throughout the United States. They tell him bluntly why they hire or promote some applicants and employees while rejecting or bypassing others. His objective at our meeting is to share with participants specific actions they can take to be among those hired and promoted. The information he will share comes directly from those in positions to make or break careers. In the last two weeks he has met with CEO's in Silicon Valley, New York City, Washington, D.C. and Denver. The career development discussion will focus on helping recent alumni understand ways to maximize the hiring and recruiting process to enhance their chances of landing a position they desire. The discussion will also center around ways more seasoned alumni can improve their chances of winning promotion and think through next steps in their career. This program is open to all alumni. We hope you can make it! If you plan to attend, please click here to RSVP. For any questions, please contact Sejal Shah at sejalmanoj@gmail.com

"Metasurface with Engineered Wavefront with Huygens, Fermat, Bragg, Friedel, and Fresnel Laws"

We have recently proposed a metasurface that generalizes classical Snell law, based on phase discontinuities. Here, I provide an outlook on this structure from different and complementary points of view, referred to classical Huygens, Fermat, Bragg, Friedel and Fresnel laws. The structure shows a generalization of the concept of crystallographic systematic absence. As a result, the Friedel law of crystals completely breaks down. A novel concept of "metacrystal" can be introduced, where systematic absences can be originated from form factors of meta-atoms, in contrast with natural absences, which are based on structure factors only. Applications will be also presented.
