« Quantum Gas in a Box » par Zoran Hadzibabic (University of Cambridge)

The next LKB seminar will be held on next Wednesday, June 22 at 13:45 in room 5 of the Collège de France. It will be preceeded by cafe at 13:30 (ground floor of Institut of physics, CDF).

We will welcome Zoran Hadzibabic (University of Cambridge) who will tell us about Quantum Gas in a Box.

Quantum Gas in a Box

Abstract :

For the past two decades harmonically trapped ultracold atomic gases have been used with great success to study fundamental many-body physics in a flexible experimental setting. Recently, we have achieved the first atomic Bose-Einstein condensate in an essentially uniform potential of an optical-box trap [1], which has opened new research possibilities, such as for quantitative studies of critical phenomena near phase transitions [2].

In this seminar I will present some of our most recent experiments on this new system, including the study of turbulence in a continuously driven gas.
