Beinecke Viewing of Historical Science Books

Open to students in the Wright Lab summer program.
Split between the Beinecke and Medical Historical Library, Yale has access to early editions of many milestones of achievement in physics. In this enrichment session, you will have the opportunity to see works from Copernicus, du Châtelet, Galileo, Kepler, Newton, and other scientists from the 16th-19th centuries, with topics ranging from early materials science, astronomy and cosmology, physics, and mathematics, a total of 15 items.

WL Summer Program: Kayleigh Bohemier, Yale, “Résumés, CVs, and Your Online Presence, From Academia to the Cubicle: A Pizza Lunch Workshop”

Learn how to recognize what makes a good résumé or CV, how to manage your online professional presence, and what tools you can use to help you make decisions about your grad school search. We’ll look at several faculty CVs, commonly-used professional profile websites, and library databases that can help you find information on departments, industries, companies, and more — whether you plan to go into academia, corporate, or nonprofit work.

WL Summer Program: "Science Communication" with David Moore, Samantha Pagan, & Jorge Torres (Yale)

“Science Communication” will include presentations by Wright Lab researchers David Moore (associate professor), Samantha Pagan (graduate student), and Jorge Torres (postdoctoral associate), providing helpful information and tips about:
Writing & publishing papers & abstracts
preparing for scientific conferences and presentations
communicating with the public about science
The event will conclude with a Q&A panel discussion to answer any questions you may have or cover any additional topics you are interested in.

WL Summer Program: Evening at Leitner Family Observatory and Planetarium

Wright Lab summer program students are invited to celebrate the Summer Solstice (longest day of the year) with a planetarium show and observing with telescopes, pending weather. In case of poor weather, the event will be held on Thursday, June 22. Open to all summer student researchers in astronomy, physics, and the Yale Quantum Institute.

WL Summer Program: Walking tour of Yale

Students in the Wright Lab summer student research program are invited to join a guided walking tour of Yale University.
The tour will leave from the Yale Visitor Center at 149 Elm Street, New Haven, CT 06511 at 1:00 p.m. Please plan to come a few minutes early so the group does not leave without you.
The tour lasts approximately 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes, and will end in the Broadway District near the Yale Bookstore at 77 Broadway.

"<hello|Quantum|world>: Introduction to Quantum Computing Workshop," Yonghsan Ding, Yale

In the frame of 2023 Summer Programming for Undergraduates at Wright Lab, YQI member Yongshan Ding is offering an Introduction to Quantum Computing Workshop in the YQI seminar room.
The workshop will be divided in two parts: one-hour overview of quantum computing and another hour of hands-on programming exercises.
Requirements: please bring a laptop.

YQI Seminar: Oriol Romero-Isart, Institute for the Quantum Optics and Quantum Information, "Levitated Nanoparticles in Macroscopic Quantum Superpositions: Pushing the Boundaries of Quantum Mechanics"

In recent years, advancements in optically levitated nanoparticles have enabled the cooling of their center-of-mass motion to the quantum ground state. As a result, a nanoparticle, which comprises billions of atoms, becomes delocalized over picometer scales. This talk aims to explore the challenges and requirements of achieving a macroscopic quantum superposition of a nanoparticle, in which the center-of-mass position is delocalized over orders of magnitude larger scales.
