4 till 5.02.2019: Visit of Vijay Pal Singh (Universität Hamburg)

Vijay Pal Singh (Universität Hamburg) will visit us from Monday 04.02.2019 to Tuesday 05.02.2019 .

He will give a talk in our group seminar on Tuesday 05.02.2019 at 09:00 in room 4.18.

Second sound and superfluidity in ultracold quantum gases

Ultracold atom systems are well-controlled and tunable quantum systems, and thereby enable us to explore quantum many-body effects, such as superfluidity, or second sound. In this talk, I will examine second sound and superfluidity in ultracold quantum gases using analytical and simulation techniques. I will report on the second sound measurements in the BEC-BCS crossover and provide a theoretical description of the second sound velocity on the BEC side of the system [1]. Here, I will demonstrate that the second sound velocity vanishes at the superfluid-thermal boundary, which is a defining feature of second sound. In the second part of this talk, I will investigate superfluidity of ultracold quantum gases via laser stirring. I will present the stirring experiments in the BEC- BCS crossover and provide a quantitative analysis of the breakdown of superfluidity [2]. I will then investigate superfluidity of 2D Bose gases across the Kosterlitz-Thouless transition and provide a quantitative understanding of the experiments performed in the Dalibard group [3]. I will also present the noise correlations of 2D Bose gases in short time of flight and use them to determine the phase coherence of the recent experiments at Hamburg [4].
