Physics Colloquium: Studying strongly interacting 1D cold atoms (as if they are weakly interacting)
Wednesday, Mar 2, 2016
4 p.m. - 5 p.m. Location: SLC 1.102

Dr. Han Pu (Rice)

Few- and many-body systems in reduced spatial dimensions often exhibit pronounced quantum effects. In this talk, I will first provide some background on the study of cold atoms confined in effective one dimensional (1D) trapping potentials. I will then introduce a mapping that maps a strongly interacting 1D atomic system into a weakly interacting one. Theoretically this is extremely useful, as a weakly interacting system can be systematically investigated using standard tools based on perturbation theory. I will show how this technique allows us to explore the quantum magnetic properties and collective excitation of strongly interacting 1D quantum gases.
