PIRSA:11070068  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Introduction to Spin Control in Lateral Quantum Dots and Micro-Magnets Characterization
Speaker(s): Sophie Rochette
Abstract: Development of quantum computing promises, among other things, improvement of scientific computation performance. Indeed, a computer exploiting the proprieties of quantum mechanics would allow for computation power exponentially greater than a classic computer.We develop double lateral quantum dots ... read more

PIRSA:11070069  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Quantum Key Distribution Over Active Telecom Fibres
Speaker(s): Catherine Holloway
Abstract: Quantum Key Distribution is a form of public-key cryptography where the security comes from the unique properties of quantum mechanical systems: entanglement and the no-cloning theorem, rather than computational complexity. With increased adoption of fibre optic networks, it may be possible to imple... read more

PIRSA:11070070  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Theory of Heavy-Hole Spin Echoes
Speaker(s): Xiaoya Judy Wang
Abstract: Heavy-hole spin states have been proposed as a robust qubit candidate. Nevertheless, the coupling of the hole spins to nuclei in the surrounding medium likely limits hole-spin coherence and has, until very recently, been overlooked. We describe the spin decoherence of a heavy-hole in a semiconductor... read more

Structural, Electronic, Magnetic, and Thermal Properties of Pb2-xLaxCrO5
Speaker(s): Biljana Indovski
Abstract: Pb2CrO5 have received considerable interests due to their potentials applications in UV radiation measuring devices, visible and UV light photodetectors. In this research we are examining the structural, electronic, magnetic, and thermal properties of polycrystalline Pb2-xLaxCrO5. Samples have been ... read more

MnSi Epitaxial Thin Films: Structure and Magnetic Properties
Speaker(s): Cathryn Parsons
Abstract: Epitaxial MnSi grown on Si (111) offers new opportunities in the development of spin-dependent transport in helical magnets. Helical magnets are a class of noncollinear structures that have shown promise as a material for spin-dependent electron transport studies.The helical magnets are of particula... read more

PIRSA:11070074  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Impact of Gd-site Doping on Magnetic, Transport and Specific Heat Behavior of Multi-Ferroic Gd2CuO4
Speaker(s): Maryam Taheri
Abstract: The magnetic properties of ceramic samples of Gd1.98R0.02CuO4 R= Ca Sr Th were studied and compared with Gd2CuO4. The results showed weak ferromagnetic ordering in all samples. We observed two magnetic ordering temperatures in the heat capacity measurement a sharp peak at TN(Gd) 6.5 K that can be at... read more

A Physicist's View of the Eye
Speaker(s): Melanie Campbell
Abstract: Melanie will discuss how she has and collaborators have applied physics techniques to advance the understanding of the optics of the eye, and to develop novel diagnostic and therapeutic approaches for eye diseases. Her work includes the application of inverse methods used to characterise optical fib... read more

PIRSA:11070092  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Spatial Analysis of Positron Emission Tomography Images Using 3D Moment Invariants
Speaker(s): Marjorie Gonzalez
Abstract: 3D moment invariants (3DMIs) are mathematical spatial descriptors designed to be invariant to scaling, translation and rotation. We propose to characterize the spatial distribution of positron emission tomography (PET) images using 3DMIs. We have used 3DMIs to characterize the spatial distribution o... read more

PIRSA:11070075  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
A Perturbation Solution Of The Mechanical Bidomain Model
Speaker(s): Vanessa Punal
Abstract: This research focuses on finding analytical solutions to the mechanical bidomain model of cardiac tissue. In particular, a perturbation expansion is used to analyze the equations, with the perturbation parameter being inversely proportional to the spring constant coupling the intracellular and extra... read more
