Special Seminar: Walid G. Malaeb - Photoemission spectroscopy studies on high-Tc superconductors and topological materials

Department of Natural Sciences, Lebanese American University Photoemission Spectroscopy (PES) is a powerful technique in directly probing the electronic structure of solids especially in its angle-resolved mode (ARPES). For this purpose, synchrotron radiation as well as high-resolution lasers and other light sources have been used. In this talk, I will present how we have been implementing this technique to uncover various aspects of the electronic structure of quantum materials, in particular the iron-pnictide high-Tc superconductors from the early stage since their discovery in Japan in 2008. The discussion will include the core energy levels, the three-dimensional electronic structure, the Fermi surfaces and superconducting gaps, the coupling to bosonic modes, etc. I will also present our recent work on alpha-Sn which has recently gained much attention due to the diverse tunable topological phases it can reveal ranging from a topological insulator (TI) to a topological Dirac semimetal (TDS) depending on the applied strain in addition to its simple elemental structure, non-toxic nature and great potential for applications. Finally, I will make a brief overview on the recent research projects we have launched at LAU. Abstract

Open Lecture Halls "Diversity Generates Science": Prof. Dr. Jarita Holbrook "Intersectional Issues of Astrophysicists"

Prof. Dr. Jarita Holbrook, Science, Technology & Innovation Studies, The University of Edinburgh (UK) ASTROMOVES is an EU MSCA funded project focused through an intersectional lens on the career decision-making of astrophysics and related scientists. Over 40 interviews were completed with half of them being available to use in the forthcoming documentary films. Included in the ASTROMOVES interviews are Queer, disabled, underrepresented and those that have left the field. As astrophysics continues to try to become more diverse and more inclusive, the interviews with intersectional astrophysicists provide insights into supportive and unsupportive factors related to their retention. This presentation will contain film clips from the interviews to illustrate points.

Guest Talk – Professor Donad Opitz, DePaul University, USA – Sealing-Wax and String: How Everyday Things Carried Gender into the Physical Laboratory

How was the ‘sociomaterial’ culture of experimental physics gendered historically? How did the gendering of laboratory materials draw on everyday practices? This talk focuses on everyday and physics laboratory contexts in which practitioners utilized commonplace, domestic tools like sealing-wax and string, precisely during a period in which laboratories and their technologies grew in scale and sophistication.

Berlin Physics Colloquium: Prof. Dr. Mischa Bonn "A Molecular View of the Water Interface"

Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, Department of Molecular Spectroscopy Water surfaces and interfaces are ubiquitous, not just in nature, but also in many technological applications. Water is a rather unique liquid, owing to its strong intermolecular interactions: strong hydrogen bonds hold water molecules together. At the surface of water, the water hydrogen-bonded network is abruptly interrupted, conferring distinct properties on the interface, compared to bulk.
