The Physics Department presents An information theoretic approach to quantify complexity of nanoscale systems by Dr. Ilya Grigorenko


Abstract: In this study the entropy density and mutual information measures were used to identify the optimal interaction parameters between nanoparticles, which lead to the maximum geometric complexity of self-assembled nanostructures. A generalization of complexity measures at a finite temperature and for nonequilibrium systems is also presented. The developed theory can be used for efficient in

In this talk I will explore a lesser-known intermediate regime of exciton-photon coupling when the Rabi energy exceeds exciton binding energy. Presented by: Jacob Khurgin

Designer Matter: Meta-Material Interactions with Light and Sound
