World of Physics: Exploring Solid-State Physics with Ultracold Atoms
Start Date: 10/12/2012Start Time: 7:30 PM
End Date: 10/12/2012

Event Description

Speaker: Dominik Schneble, Associate Professor, Department of Physics and Astronomy and the PI/Group Leader of the Ultracold Atomic Physics Group

The study and control of electron behavior in solids is at the heart of solid-state physics and modern technology. In the ongoing quest to acquire a more detailed understanding of advanced materials such as high-temperature superconductors, and to search for materials with novel properties, it has recently become possible to engineer synthetic systems with ultracold atoms in artificial crystals made of light. In these “designer” materials, whose lattice constants are three orders of magnitude larger than those of real solids and in which atoms take the role of electrons, key properties such as lattice structure and dimensionality, interactions, or defects are freely adjustable and perfectly known.
