In order to enable an iCal export link, your account needs to have an API key created. This key enables other applications to access data from within Indico even when you are neither using nor logged into the Indico system yourself with the link provided. Once created, you can manage your key at any time by going to 'My Profile' and looking under the tab entitled 'HTTP API'. Further information about HTTP API keys can be found in the Indico documentation.
Additionally to having an API key associated with your account, exporting private event information requires the usage of a persistent signature. This enables API URLs which do not expire after a few minutes so while the setting is active, anyone in possession of the link provided can access the information. Due to this, it is extremely important that you keep these links private and for your use only. If you think someone else may have acquired access to a link using this key in the future, you must immediately create a new key pair on the 'My Profile' page under the 'HTTP API' and update the iCalendar links afterwards.

Surface electronic structure of Bi2Se3 Topological Insulator
(Department of Physics and Astronomy, Aarhus University)
Nordita seminar rm 122:026 (Nordita)
Nordita seminar rm 122:026
The so-called topological insulators are well-known, off-the-shelf materials, but they have a previously overlooked and profound "topological" property which forces their surfaces and edges to be metallic, in contrast to the insulating bulk. Moreover, the one-dimensional (two-dimensional) metal at the edge (surface) of a topological insulator was shown to be inherently robust against disturbances, and to possess special transport properties linked to the electron's spin, leading to many exciting predictions for new physics and potential applications.
In this talk, I will also discuss recent results on the electronic structure and electron dynamics of the prototypical topological insulator Bi2Se3. In particular, I will focus on the formation of a quantum-confined two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) in the conduction band of Bi2Se3 and the eventual splitting of the 2DEG states by a strong spin-orbit interaction. I will also discuss the strength of the electron-phonon coupling on Bi2Se3 and the influence of non-magnetic adsorbates on the surface electronic structure.
