Inhalt: 
In this talk, I will detail our strategy on how to translate nanoscopy techniques into the field of materials science. We have developed and applied different modalities of nanoscopy techniques that provide unique insights about the type and density of defects together with the spectral characterization at locations determined with nanometrescale precision. We focus on defects hosted in two classes of 2D materials: hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) and transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), such as MoS2, WS2, MoSe2, WSe2, and MoTe2. Defects hosted in 2D materials such as hBN and TMDs are particularly interesting due to their single photon emission. SP emitters are stable concerning transfer onto other substrates, opening the possibility of integrating them into more complex nanophotonic devices and paving the way for future semiconductor quantum information processing technologies. Transmission electron microscopy and scanning probe microscopy can provide atomic resolution. However, both techniques require strict sample preparation protocols and are not optimal for fast insitu operation or applications requiring the characterization of large areas. In contrast, Nanoscopy can operate insitu under ambient conditions and is compatible with the probing of defect chemistry and dynamics in different pH environments and under different solvents. We also demonstrated highcontent characterization of 2D materials using silicon nitride waveguides as imaging platforms that allow integration of more complex nanophotonic circuits.

On symmetryprotected topological states: from free fermions to the Haldane phase

Inhalt: 
The NobelPrize winning Haldane phase of spin1 antiferromagnetic spin chains is a paradigm for symmetryprotected topological phases. When local charge fluctuations are allowed, there has been a debate: protection by what? My answer is that there exists an adiabatic path to a freefermion topological phase of class AIII, protected by a particlehole symmetry. To set the stage, I will review Dyson’s Threefold Way and recall the Tenfold Way of disordered fermions.

Inhalt: 
Zeros of random polynomials give a rise to a point process which does look similar to the ones arising in RMT but has no integrable structure. We discuss a long standing problem of finding persistence probability asymptotic behaviour for the family of Kac polynomials of even large degree. We first use imprecise connection to the model of truncations of random orthogonal matrices and calculate persistence probability by using integrability of corresponding RMT model. We then present recent progress in solving another integrable model, namely Gaussian Stationary Process with sech correlations, which was shown in 2002 [Dembo, Poonen, Shao, Zeitouni] to give a precise approximation for Kac polynomials. The talk is based on joint works with M. Gebert (QMUL/UC Davis), G. Schehr (LPTMS).
