Within the seminar students can give talks on current topics in solid-state physics. The seminar aims to give a closer look at new developments in solid-state physics and to show how these developments can be transferred into applications. In the summer semester 2010 the seminar will again focus on spin electronics, solid-state quantum information processing, the physics of solid-state nanostructures, and high temperature superconductivity (including the previously discovered FeAs superconductors). These topics are in the focus of several research programs of WMI.

List of open topics for seminar talks in SS 2010:

  1. Half-integer Flux Quantum Transitions in a Niobium-Iron Pnictide Loop
  2. Quantum Ground State and Single Phonon Control of a Mechanical Resonator
  3. Demonstration of a Two-Qubit Algorithm with a Superconducting Quantum Processor

  5. Josephson Light-Emitting Diode
  6. The Gauge (Nambu-Goldstone) Mode in Superconductors
  7. Ultra-strong Light-Matter Interaction
  8. Charge-4e Superconductivity
