402-0484-00L  Experimental and Theoretical Aspects of Quantum Gases

SemesterFrühjahrssemester 2016
DozierendeT. U. Donner, T. Esslinger
Periodizität2-jährlich wiederkehrende Veranstaltung

KurzbeschreibungQuantum Gases are the most precisely controlled many-body systems in physics. This provides a unique interface between theory and experiment, which allows addressing fundamental concepts and long-standing questions. This course lays the foundation for the understanding of current research in this vibrant field.
LernzielThe lecture conveys a basic understanding for the current research on quantum gases. Emphasis will be put on the connection between theory and experimental observation. It will enable students to read and understand publications in this field.
InhaltCooling and trapping of neutral atoms

Bose and Fermi gases

Ultracold collisions

The Bose-condensed state

Elementary excitations



Interference and Correlations

Optical lattices
Skriptnotes and material accompanying the lecture will be provided
