|Aug. 22||No Colloquium||No Colloquium||No Colloquium||No Colloquium|
|An Electron and its Wave Function||
Fundamental Properties of the electron wave function square and its probabilistic
interpretation (Bohm, de Broglie) as opposed to the charge density
|Freezing of Nanodroplets||
A discussion of the freezing of nanodroplets in water vs. alkanes, notably,
small angle x-ray and neutron scattering in the study of vapor phase nucleation.
|Sep. 12||[No Colloquium]
|An electron, an atom, and a photon||
The talk is focused on laser-assisted electron-atom scattering (LAES) experiments:
An electron scatters from a target in an additional strong electromagnetic field.
|Higgs Portal Dark Matter||
The speaker will discuss dark matter models with a non-gravitational interaction
between dark matter and ordinary particles by Higgs exchange (Higgs "portal").
|Shining Atomic Light on Halo Nuclei||
Halo nuclei (with extra planetary neutrons surrounding a core) are studied based on
the theory and experiment for high-precision laser measurements of atomic transitions.
|Dynamic Equations on Time Scales:
Laplace and Z-Transform
| The method of time scales [by the way: largely invented by the speaker (source:UDJ)],
applied to the unification of the discrete and continuous Laplace and Z-transform.
|Aspects of Night Vision
|Recent advances in the understanding of
night vision will be discussed, i.e.,
sensing techniques that permit imaging in the absence, or near absence, of visible light.
The fascinating world of
electrons in flatland
integer quantized Hall effect (IQHE) and its fractional counterpart (FQHE) were
found in the two-dimensional electron systems, in perpendicular magnetic fields. What else...?

for optoelectronic applications
favorable physical properties of high-quality single crystal films which
are not lattice matched to the substrates on which they are grown, will be discussed.
