Quantum Diamond Sensors
Time: 4:30 pm
Place: 2241 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Ron Walsworth, Harvard
Abstract: In recent years, optically probed nitrogen–vacancy (NV) quantum defects in diamond have become a leading modality for magnetic, electrical, and temperature sensing at short length scales (nanometers to millimeters) under ambient conditions. This technology has wide-ranging application across the physical and life sciences — from NMR spectroscopy at the scale of individual cells to improved biomedical diagnostics to the search for dark matter. I will provide an overview of quantum diamond sensors and their diverse applications.

The arXiv: current status and future plans
Time: 3:30 pm
Place: 2241 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Steinn Sigurdsson, Penn State (arXiv Scientific Director)
Abstract: I will discuss the current status of the arXiv, the automated electronic archive and distribution server for research article preprints and related materials. After 25 years, the arXiv is the dominant provider of preprints of research articles to the mathematical and physical sciences. I will also discuss plans for extending the scope of arXiv and the implementation of the arXiv Next Generation, and talk about where the arXiv may to go next.
