Herr Dr. Francesco Intravaia (Max-Born-Institut, Berlin und Institut für Physik der Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin) spricht zum Thema "Fluctuation-induced phenomena in equilibrium and nonequilibrium systems".

Abstract: Fluctuation-induced phenomena are manifestations of the statistical properties of a physical system. These interactions are relevant in several fields of physics, ranging from experiments with cold and ultra-cold atoms via multidisciplinary topics such as biophysics and modern technologies like nano- and micro-electromechanical systems all the way to fundamental questions in cosmology. Paradigmatic examples include van der Waals & Casimir forces between atoms and/or macroscopic objects and the Hawking radiation.

This presentation reviews some of the recent advances in this field of research. Both, systems in thermodynamic equilibrium as well as nonequilibrium configurations will be addressed. These results open new avenues for the investigation of fundamental problems in physics and, at the same time, lead to novel multifunctional devices.
