Thank you all for having a great time during the Faculty Fest 2023 at Aplinka.
The breakthroughs started with graphite and Scotch tape. Transition metal dichalcogenides moiré materials could act as “simulators” of the Hubbard model, potentially solving some of the field’s deepest mysteries. Read more here.
The Nobel Prize in Physics 2022 was awarded “for experiments with entangled photons, establishing the violation of Bell inequalities and pioneering quantum information science”. Read more here: https://www.nobelprize.org/prizes/physics/2022/summary/
Among six PhD theses this year competing for the best thesis in theoretical physics, the jury awarded Katarína Karľová by honorable mention for her thesis entitled “Rigorous analysis of magnetization processes in classical and quantum spin models“.
