Accelerating materials discovery by means of self-driving laboratories: The case for optoelectronic materials

e-Lecture
My research group, collaborators and I have engaged in the development of self-driving laboratories. Self-driving laboratories combine artificial intelligence and automated synthesis and characterization for the rapid closed-loop optimization and discovery of novel materials. In this talk, I will give an overview of the important elements that comprise these systems, as implemented in our lab, and will describe exciting progress in the optimization of candidate molecules for organic laser devices.

What the heck is Tenure-Track?

In the German academic system, Tenure-Track is a relatively new concept. With a tenure-track position, one gets the opportunity to an immediately transition to a permanent position when successfully completing the probationary period (known as the tenure-track phase). The majority of tenure-track positions come along with a professorship; less common and known are lecturer or researcher positions with tenure-track. [more]
In the scientific field of magnetism, attention is moving towards ever more complicated magnetic textures. Simple ferromagnetic materials, however, seem to have nothing interesting to offer anymore. Or, do they? [more]

Skyrmion twist to quantum computing

Zoom Lecture
There’s been tremendous progress in theory and experiment of quantum networks as a means of distributing quantum information over long distances. This talk will focus on one approach, based on quantum memories encoded in spins and coupled to photons via color centers in diamond. From large datasets of such color centers -- silicon vacancy and tin-vacancy defects in particular -- it is clear that the inhomogeneous distribution of optical transitions can be reliably kept below ~ 10 GHz, and that within this distribution there is no significant correlation with spin coherence properties. This invites protocols tailored to take advantage of this spectral distribution for wavelength division multiplexed addressing. To this end, we will discuss a new scheme for optical entanglement distribution in quantum networks based on a near-deterministic entangled photon pair source. By combining heralded photonic Bell pair generation with spectral mode conversion to interface with quantum memories, the scheme eliminates switching losses due to multiplexing. We analyze this approach for the particularly challenging problem of long-baseline entanglement distribution via satellites and ground-based memories, where it unlocks additional advantages: (i) the substantially higher atmospheric transmission η of down-links vs. uplinks with realistic adaptive optics, and (ii) photon loss occurring before interaction with the quantum memory – i.e., Alice and Bob receiving rather than transmitting – reduces memory requirements by O(η).
