Bringing Quantum Mechanics to Life: From Schrödinger's Cat to Schrödinger's Microbe
01 Nov 2016   Contributor(s):: Tongcang Li
In this talk, I will first give a brief introduction to basic concepts in quantum mechanics and the Schrödinger's cat thought experiment. I will then review developments in creating quantum superposition and entangled states and the realization of quantum teleportation. Nontrivial quantum...

Quantum Mechanics for Everyone
03 Jun 2015   Contributor(s):: Erica W. Carlson
Does an observer determine reality? Can I use quantum mechanics to create my own reality? Quantum mechanics takes us into the wild and wacky world of the really small where particles are waves, waves are particles, and the physical intuition we have from our everyday life doesn't...

Lecture 1: The Wigner Formulation of Quantum Mechanics
18 Nov 2014   Contributor(s):: Jean Michel D Sellier

Quantum Beauty: Real and Ideal
15 Apr 2013   Contributor(s):: Frank Wilczek
Does the world embody beautiful concepts? Mystics and philosophers long imagined that it should, and scientists gathered hints that it does, but it is really only in the twentieth century, with the development of quantum theory, that the answer emerged as a triumphant "Yes!" I'll...

Applicationdriven CoDesign: Using Proxy Apps in the ASCR Materials CoDesign Center
31 May 2012   Contributor(s):: Jim Belak
Computational materials science is performed with a suite of applications that span the quantum mechanics of interatomic bonding to the continuum mechanics of engineering problems and phenomenon specific models in between. In this talk, we will review this suite and the motifs used in each of the...

Development of the ReaxFF reactive force fields and applications to combustion, catalysis and material failure
12 Sep 2011   Contributor(s):: Adri van Duin
This lecture will describe how the traditional, nonreactive FFconcept can be extended for application including reactive events by introducing bond order/bond distance concepts. Furthermore, it will address how these reactive force fields can be trained against QMdata, thus greatly enhancing...

Nanoelectronic Modeling Lecture 25b: NEMO1D  Hole Bandstructure in Quantum Wells and Hole Transport in RTDs
09 Mar 2010   Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck
Heterostructures such as resonant tunneling diodes, quantum well photodetectors and lasers, and cascade lasers break the symmetry of the crystalline lattice. Such break in lattice symmetry causes a strong interaction of heavy, light and splitoff hole bands. The bandstructure of holes and the...
