IFRAF Workshop : Quantum Simulators with Ultracold Atoms.

IFRAF Workshop

Institut d’Optique (Palaiseau, France) 3 - 4 February, 2011

Research on ultracold atomic gases has been developing rapidly for more than two decades, breaking more and more frontiers and opening successive exciting perspectives. A central trend at the forefront of modern research on ultracold atoms is now to design, produce and operate quantum simulators, with a view towards investigating a variety of complex systems where fundamental questions remain open. Potential applications include superfluidity, high-Tc superconductivity, quantum Hall effect, or frustrated systems, for instance. Several experiments have already been successful in demonstrating the ability of ultracold atoms to address complex problems by mimicking model-systems of condensed-matter physics or high-energy physics. Landmark results include observation of Bose and Fermi Mott insulators, fermionic superfluidity, Tonks-Girardeau and Berezinskii-Kosterlitz-Thouless physics, quantum spin exchange, as well as Anderson localization.

The aim of this IFRAF workshop is to bring together internationally-renowned leaders in this area. There will be a number of talks and a lab tour of related experimental and theoretical activities at Institut d’Optique.
