Searching for physics beyond the standard model: the neutron electric dipole moment experiment at the TUM
Time: 2:30 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Michael Marino, Technical University of Munich
Abstract: The discovery of a neutron electric dipole moment (nEDM) would provide an unambiguous indication of time violation in a fundamental system, and address one of the Sakharov conditions (CP-symmetry violation) necessary to explain the observed matter/antimatter asymmetry in the universe. Current experimental limitations on the nEDM are roughly 6 orders of magnitude above the Standard Model (SM) prediction and so searches for the nEDM provide powerful tests of physics beyond the SM. The nEDM experiment currently under construction at the Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM) is seeking to improve this limit up to 2 orders of magnitude. A contextual overview of the relevant physics will be given, and developments in the TUM nEDM experiment, including the recent installation of a world-record magnetically shielded room, will be presented.

Condensed Matter Theory Group Seminar
A hybrid quantum dot spin qubit
Time: 4:30 pm
Place: 5310 Chamberlin
Speaker: Susan Coppersmith
Abstract: I will present a quantum dot qubit architecture that has an attractive combination of speed and fabrication simplicity consisting of a double quantum dot with one electron in one dot and two electrons in the other. The architecture is relatively simple to fabricate, a universal set of fast operations can be implemented electrically, and the system has potentially long coherence times. Progress towards experimental implementation will also be discussed.
