Visit Levitov

Leonid Levitov was visiting this week wednesday-thursday.

Leonid Levitov is a brilliant theorist with persistent interest to experimental problems. He is employed in MIT. I know him quite long: we have had the same supervisor, Gerasim Eliashberg, at Landau Institute in eighties of the century past.  

The visit has happened rather unexpectedly. I wrote to Leonid asking a question about his recent work, the answer was important for me. He answered he could not think of it since he’s packing a suitcase to go to Europe. Yet my mail brought him to a good idea: to include Delft into his European tournee.

That was great. We’ve got a nice and very fruitful discussion about entanglement production: it went through several stages and will perhaps result in a small collaborative project. Yet I was not only one to profit from his presence: Leonid has many contacts in Delft, like Hans Mooij and Teun Klapwijk and is always eager to make new ones. So he performed like  a chess master giving a show of simultaneous games: he quickly changed from one "opponent" to another.

Leonid also gave a seminar about a plausible scenario of exciton condensation in bilayer graphene.
