Humanity Needs Dreamers: A Visit With Marie Curie

Abstract:  Ahead of an upcoming national screening tour, you're invited to experience a digital presentation of Humanity Needs Dreamers: A Visit With Marie Curie (40 mins) with filmmaker Jen Myronuk on Wednesday, July 25th at 5:30pm. As one of the world’s most renowned scientists, two-time Nobel Prize winner Marie Sklodowska Curie is best known for pioneering the field of radioactivity — but few understand the obstacles she faced just to get into the laboratory. What if she could tell her story? Written and portrayed by engineer & scholar Susan Marie Frontczak and produced by STEM on Stage, this presentation is part of an NSF-funded collaborative outreach study with Princeton Center for Complex Materials with preview screenings at PCCM, MIT Kavli Institute & MIT Department of Physics, Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab, Cambridge Science Festival among others along with formal presentations at APS Physics and ACS.

Advanced Studies Gateway talk at FRIB: Quantum Computing and the Entanglement Frontier

Abstract:  The quantum laws governing atoms and other tiny objects seem to defy common sense, and information encoded in quantum systems has weird properties that baffle our feeble human minds. John Preskill will explain why he loves quantum entanglement, the elusive feature making quantum information fundamentally different from information in the macroscopic world. By exploiting quantum entanglement, quantum computers should be able to solve otherwise intractable problems, with far-reaching applications to cryptology, materials, and fundamental physical science. Preskill is less weird than a quantum computer, and easier to understand.

Nuclear Structure 2018

Abstract:  Nuclear Structure 2018 (NS2018) is the 17th in a series of nuclear structure conferences organized biennially by North American national laboratories. Previous meetings in this series have been held in Knoxville (ORNL), Vancouver (TRIUMF), Argonne (ANL), and Berkeley (LBL). These conferences are devoted to recent experimental and theoretical developments in the research on nuclei near the limits of isospin, spin and excitation energy. A high-resolution version of the conference poster can be downloaded here or through the menu. The Low Energy Community Meeting (LECM) 2018 will immediately follow NS2018. If you plan to attend any part of the LECM please register using the link on the left.
