Physics Colloquium: Valleytronics in Two-dimensional Crystals http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220414220?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220414220?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS Wednesday, Oct 1
(4:15 p.m. - 5 p.m.)

Dr. Di Xiao (Carnegie Mellon)

In many crystals the Bloch bands have inequivalent and well separated energy extrema in the momentum space, known as valleys. The valley index constitutes a well-defined discrete degree of freedom for low-energy carriers that may be used to encode information.  This has led to the concept of valleytronics, a new type of electronics based on manipulating the valley index of carriers.  In the first part of the talk, I will describe a general scheme based on inversion symmetry breaking to control the valley index, using graphene and monolayers of MoS2 as an example.  In particularly, the valley Hall effect and valley-dependent optical selection will be discussed.  In the second part, I will show that inversion symmetry breaking together with spin-orbit coupling also leads to coupled spin and valley physics, which provide a general route towards the integration of valleytronics and spintronics.

Cinematheque: Tango Negro with Laurie Vega http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220411901?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220411901?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS Wednesday, Oct 1
(7:30 p.m.)

Tango Negro, The African Roots of Tango by Angolan filmmaker Dom Pedro explores the expression of Tango's Africanness and the contribution of African cultures in the creation of the tango. Tango was a reflection of the social life of the slaves that were taken to South America - including Argentina and Uruguay - mostly from central Africa, particularly from the former Kongo Kingdom. Director Dom Pedro reveals the depth of the footprints of the African music on the tango, through this rich movie combining musical performances and interviews from many tango fans and historians in Latin America and Europe, including the renowned Argentinean pianist Juan Carlos Caceres.

Laurie Vega

Laurie Vega began learning Argentine style tango in 1997 under local instruction. In 1998, she co-founded the non-profit Tango Argentino of Dallas (T.A.D.) and served on its board for over two years. On occasion, she organizes workshops and guest author lectures, hosts La Mariposa Milonga, a monthly tango party, teaches weekly, and spins as a tango djay to traditional, alternative and themed music.  She has taught in all of T.A.D.'s Tangothons and in Mexico. In addition, she has acted as a tango media consultant.  She also lectures on the African roots of tango and has been an invited speaker by the City of Dallas and the MENSA society.  Since 2000, she has performed with and choreographed tangos for professional theater and dance groups (the first Texan and Dallasite to do so), charity groups, entertainment companies, major corporations, cultural festivals, weddings, private parties, conferences, country clubs and the State Fair of Texas. She has performed on stages at The Majestic, Teatro Dallas, Latino Cultural Center, Anatole, and various dance halls/ restaurants.

A devoted student of Argentine tango, Laurie has taken numerous workshops and private lessons with Juan Carlos and Johanna Copes, Osvaldo Zotto and Lorena Ermocida, Diego di Falco and Carlolina Zokalski, Guillermo Merlo and Fernanda Ghi, Gustavo Naveira and Giselle Anne, Fabian Salas and Carolina del Rivero, Facundo and Kelly Posadas, Nito and Elba Garcia, Luciana Valle and Alex Krebs, Miguel Zotto, Julio Balmaceda and Corina de la Rosa and many others. Since 2001, she has studied intensively with world class tango dancers, internationally acclaimed, world touring "Forever Tango" show dancers, and revolutionary/experimental Buenos Aires milongueros (social dance hall tango enthusiasts).  

Laurie's focus on dancing is on technique, elegance, musicality and improvisation. She has been complemented for her embellishments and precise foot work, her smoothness and finesse, her "feather" lightness, her torque and flexibility, and her dramatic, creative choreographies. She has been described as a highly interpretative, emotional dancer with a good ear.  As a trainer, she has been noted in Dallas and critiqued in Buenos Aires as "excellent" and "phenomenal." As a teacher, her goal is to inspire others to discover the passion for something ... the joy of tango, to transcend physical barriers and become beautiful forms of movement meshed with music, to find a universe of human expression in life itself.

(6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.) Location: Edith O’Donnell Arts & Technology Building 1st floor Gallery .

Opening reception: September 19, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

Opening Friday, September 19, 2014 at UT Dallas' newest facility, the Edith O’Donnell Art & Tech building, major art professor John Pomara curates Tech Talk with collector/contemporary art advocate Joan Davidow.  To honor Davidow’s newly announced and placed gift of her contemporary art collection, Tech Talk features works she has collected over a 20-year period by 15 emerging and mid-career Texas artists whose themes and methods reflect the budding technology of our era.  UT Dallas President David Daniel and Arts & Humanities Dean Dennis Kratz will welcome a gathering of students, artists, teachers, collectors and arts advocates to honor this highly inventive and meaningful gift to the university. 

 

“Contemporary art addresses the life we’re living right now, and it’s very satisfying and exciting to be able to share it with new generations of UT Dallas students and faculty, for whom I have a great deal of affection and respect. These works deserve to live and be seen, and I hope they will inspire and educate those who have the chance to experience the collection.”

-Joan Davidow

 

“Joan's gift is both personally generous and symbolically brilliant. Thanks to her, innovative works by young, rising Texas artists will grace the buildings of a young Texas university that is rapidly rising to international prominence,”

-Dr. Dennis M. Kratz, dean of the university’s School of Arts and Humanities and the Ignacy and Celina Rockover Professor of Humanities.

 

“As an important Dallas-based arts administrator and journalist, Joan Davidow has been actively involved in the fluorescence of the rapidly growing local arts scene. Through this, she has built an unrivaled collection of the works of young Texas artists at the turning points in their career. The works she so generously has donated will both inspire new young artists and raise the bar of quality for their new work. The prospect is very exciting.”

-Dr. Richard Brettell, the Margaret McDermott Distinguished Chair in Art and Aesthetics at UT Dallas

Opening Reception: Friday, September 26, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

The show is curated by Professor John Pomara and includes pieces from PhD candidate Jillian Round, LeeDon Moore, who is finishing his master of fine arts degree, and Arts and Technology (ATEC) master’s student Donald Davis.

“When I started my MFA I had no idea what I was doing,” said Moore, who is also creative director of UT Dallas’ Marketing Department. “I had been in advertising so long that I found it very difficult to not have a client or brand determine the end-results of my work. The first thing I had to do was relax and get comfortable with expressing my own point of view. It was much harder than I expected.”

Moore, who is showing both photography and sculpture, representing both digital and analog, said he had earned enough credits to graduate the semester before the Edith O’Donnell Arts and Technology Building opened, but was inspired by the new space to stay in the program an extra year.

“This incredible new space inspired me to start creating digital work again. I took my newfound confidence and point of view and began creating video ‘spectacles’ in PowerPoint. These pieces I am most proud of. They are truly representative of what I learned during my time in the program. These will be shown as a seven-minute video loop during the show,” Moore said.
