Emergent phenomena and universality in quantum systems far from thermal equilibrium

Colloquium | September 24 | 4:15-5:30 p.m. | LeConte Hall, Room #1

Ehud Altman, Associate Professor, The Weizmann Institute of Science

Department of Physics

Recent experiments with ultra-cold atomic gases and trapped ions as well as solid-state devices such as superconducting circuits designed to manipulate q-bits, are posing a new challenge for theory. As in traditional atomic physics these systems are often prepared far from equilibrium, or continuously driven by electromagnetic fields. At the same time they retain a many-body character and...   More >
