Group seminar at LMU and Zoom: From Atomic Physics to Plasmonics: Transition and Development in Interdisciplinary Research
Jing-Wei Yang, NTU Taipei in Taiwan
Group seminar at LMU seminar room and Zoom
Thursday, July 20, 10:00 am (MEZ)
This talk will focus on the skill transfer and personal inspiration I learned from two fields, atomic physics and plasmonics. Firstly, I will briefly introduce my research work on atomic physics. We have been dedicated to exploring the mechanism of electromagnetically induced absorption ( EIA) in 87Rb using advanced experimental techniques and theoretical models. We have discovered some clues in the group index measurement and have qualitatively explained the observed phenomena by analyzing the Liouville equation of a degenerate 4-level-based system. Next, I will talk about my research on plasmonics. I learned knowledge of solid physics and developed the ability of many nanofabrication techniques independently. Moreover, I have also studied some superconducting physics. Thanks to advanced nano techniques, we find disorder-induced 2D superconductivity in a NbTiN film; also, we developed NbN superconducting devices, such as superconducting single photon detectors (SSPD) and Josephson junction. Thanks to experiencing the challenges of transitioning between these two disciplines, I have developed the ability to adapt to new research environments, acquire new knowledge, solve complex problems, and cooperate with others. These interdisciplinary experiences give me a unique perspective and innovative mindset, enabling me to establish connections and contributions in different fields.
