Quantum Entanglement and Superconductivity
Speaker(s): Subir Sachdev
Abstract: Einstein called it “spooky action at a distance.” Entanglement is a counterintuitive feature of quantum theory by which two particles are deeply correlated even when separated by vast distances, such that a measurement of one particle instantaneously determines the state of another. Remark... read more

PIRSA:14050109  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Quantum matter without quasiparticles
Speaker(s): Subir Sachdev
Abstract: Modern materials abound in systems to which the quasiparticle picture does not apply, and developing their theoretical description remains an important challenge in condensed matter physics. I will describe recent progress in understanding the dynamics of two systems without quasiparticles: (i... read more

Entangled states of quantum matter
Speaker(s): Subir Sachdev
Abstract: Theorists have been studying and classifying entanglement in many-particle quantum states for many years. In the past few years, experiments on such states have finally appeared, generating much excitement. I will describe experimental observations on magnetic insulators, ultracold atoms, and ... read more

Entanglement, Holography, and the Quantum Phases of Matter
Speaker(s): Subir Sachdev

Entangling Superconductivity and antiferromagnetism: Quantum Monte Carlo without the sign Problem
Speaker(s): Subir Sachdev
Abstract: It has long been known that a metal near an instability to antiferromagnetism also has a weak-coupling Cooper instability to spin-singlet d-wave-like superconductivity. However, the theory of the antiferromagnetic quantum critical point flows to strong-coupling in two spatial dimensions,... read more

Compressible Quantum Liquids: Field Theory Versus Holography
Speaker(s): Subir Sachdev
Abstract: The description of non-Fermi liquid metals is one of the central problems in the theory of correlated electron systems. I present a holographic theory which builds on general features of the thermal entropy density and the entanglement entropy. Remarkable connections emerge between the holographic a... read more

What Can Gauge-Gravity Duality Teach us About Condensed Matter Physics?

Quantum "disordering" magnetic order in insulators, superconductors, and metals
Speaker(s): Subir Sachdev
Abstract: tba
Date: 29/05/2010 - 11:45 am

Strong coupling problems in condensed matter and the AdS/CFT correspondence
Speaker(s): Subir Sachdev
Abstract: I will survey some open problems posed by experiments on condensed matter systems, such as the high temperature superconductors. I will argue that their solutions require analyses of strong-coupling regimes which cannot be addressed by conventional field-theoretic means. I will describe insights dra... read more

Nodal Quasiparticles and Spin and Charge Order in the Cuprate Superconductors
Speaker(s): Subir Sachdev
Abstract: I will discuss the interplay between the fermionic nodal quasiparticles of a d-wave superconductor and the various spin and charge orders that have been observed in the cuprate superconductors. Fluctuations of a composite 'nematic' order are identified as the dominant source of inelastic scattering ... read more

Quantum criticality and black holes
Speaker(s): Subir Sachdev
Abstract: I will describe antiferromagnets and superconductors near quantum phase transitions. There is a remarkable analogy between their dynamics and the holographic description of Hawking radiation from black holes. I will show how insights from this analogy have shed light on experiments on the cuprate hi... read more
