Speaker: Dr Simone Sturniolo, UKRI Rutherford Appleton laboratory Abstract: The amazing variety of all matter, natural or artificial, is born out of the fundamental bricks that are a few dozen elements
Today, however, another tool helps us look into how atoms form macroscopic matter: computers
In this talk, you will learn about some of the ways in which computer simulations can allow us to model matter from the fundamental laws of physics, help us understand experiments, make predictions, and even discover new materials from scratch

” The Euclid mission, to be launched in 2022, is designed to tackle some fundamental questions; why is the expansion of the Universe accelerating and what is the “dark energy” that is thought to drive it? what are the nature and properties of “dark matter”, how is it distributed and how has that changed over the lifetime of the universe? Answers to these questions will dramatically change our view of the universe and have the potential to require that physics textbooks are rewritten

Physics broadly studies two types of objects: light and matter
) One of the greatest success of Physics was to describe the interactions between these particles, in particular the interaction between light and matter (quantum electrodynamics)
In the low-energy, non-relativistic limit known as quantum optics, one can bring one photon to interact strongly with one material excitation, thus giving rise to new objects which are neither light nor matter but a mixture of both, inheriting their opposite characteristics, such as light-speed propagation and very strong interactions
