  • Quantum Gases in a Box
    Seminar:  Condensed Matter Resnick seminar QUEST Center event:  Speaker:  Nir Navon (Yale University) Date :  06/12/2018 – 12:30 – 13:30 Place:  Resnick (#209) – room 210 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 achieved the first atomic Bose-Einstein condensate in an essentially uniform potential of an opti …
  • Attosecond science on the nano-scale
    Seminar:  Optics Seminar QUEST Center event:  Speaker:  Michael Krueger, Weizmann Institute of Science (Physics Candidate) Date :  12/12/2018 – 12:00 – 13:00 Place:  Nano Center, 9th floor seminar room Abstract:  Attosecond science is based on steering electrons by the electric field of a strong laser pulse. It has enabled the observation of electron dynamics in atoms, molecules and solids on its natural time scale, the attosecond domain (1as = 10-18s). In my talk, …

  • Light at the Horizon: Observation of Stimulated Hawking Radiation in Optics
    Seminar:  Colloquium QUEST Center event:  Speaker:  Ulf Leonhardt, Weizmann Institute Date :  26/11/2018 – 10:30 Place:  Physics 301 Abstract:  Hawking radiation has been one of the intellectually most influential predictions of theoretical physics, connecting general relativity with quantum mechanics and thermodynamics, but it has never been fully observed yet, even in laboratory analogues, despite admirable experimental progress made. Here we report on clear, non- …
  • Avoiding Ergodicity: Static and Dynamical Localization in Clean Interacting Systems
    Seminar:  Condensed Matter Resnick seminar QUEST Center event:  Speaker:  Yuval Baum (Caltech) Date :  21/11/2018 – 12:00 – 13:00 Place:  Nano (206), 9th floor Abstract:  The many body localized phase provides the first and only example of a generic quantum interacting system that does not reach thermal equilibrium, and thereby violates the most fundamental principles of statistical physics. In the last decade, an enormous theoretical effort was invested in understa …
