Searching for the origin of Galactic cosmic rays: The multimessenger approach
A series of expository lectures offered to a broader audience than that of a seminar; audience members are not expected to have detailed specialist knowledge of the subject matter.
Interaction of light with nanostructured materials gives rise to nanostructured optical waves, i.e., to electromagnetic fields varying strongly at the nanoscale, opening exciting possibilities for surpassing the classical diffraction limit and molding the flow of light at length scales far below the optical wavelength.
Inflationary cosmology is the most successful explanation of the large scale features of our universe, such as the uniform tempertaure distribution of the Cosmic microwave background radiation (CMB) and the near flat global geometry of the universe.
