- Vincenzo Tamma (Portsmouth) on 2nd May 2018 1:00:pm Title: Second-Order Temporal Interference with Thermal Light: Interference beyond the Coherence Time Abstract: TBD
- Peter Millington (Nottingham) on 9th May 2018 1:00:pm || Title: Fifth forces, Higgs portals and broken scale invariance || || Abstract: The simplest modifications of general relativity often involve coupling additional scalar fields to the scalar curvature, resulting in conformally-coupled scalar-tensor theories. Indeed, any interacting scalar fields, including the Higgs field of the Standard Model (of particle physics), naturally obtain such non-minimal couplings...
