    • Title Precision physics in the LHC era
    • Abstract Currently the only new particle discovered at the LHC is the Higgs boson. Its properties, in particular its couplings to other particles, seem consistent with the Standard Model predictions. This scenario, together with the lack of new physics signals at the LHC, can be discouraging. However the capabilities of the LHC as a precision physics machine should not be underestimated, and a strong program of precision measurements together with precision calculations of the Standard Model predictions could bring us information on beyond Standard Model physics even if the LHC does not see any resonance. In this talk I will give a review of such theoretical studies, focusing in particular on the Electro Weak precision observables and the measurement of the Higgs potential.

    • Title Mott Lecture: The next life of silicon
    • Abstract The 20th century has been distinguished by the silicon-based information revolution, where bits are encoded as charges which are manipulated and stored via field effect transistors. The continued exponential growth of information technology based on straightforward extrapolations of this paradigm is not guaranteed, and there has therefore been a search for both alternative paradigms and materials. The new paradigms entail exploitation of spin and orbital degrees of freedom, including related quantum phenomena. While “exotic” materials have been successfully used to demonstrate some of the associated physics, we show here that silicon may be an excellent host for the new effects. In particular, laser cooling and electromagnetic traps have led to a revolution in atomic physics, yielding dramatic discoveries ranging from Bose-Einstein condensation to quantum control of single atoms. Because it is a semiconductor of extraordinary cleanliness which can be acquired at low cost, silicon can also be thought of a poor man’s atom trap. We describe here the beginnings of the science of silicon as atom trap, where the trapped atoms are the donor impurities. Key tools, enabling the visualization and manipulation of the impurity quantum states, are free electron lasers and scanning tunneling microscopes.
