Few-body and Collective Many-body Behavior with Charge Impurities in Atomic Quantum Gases

Wednesday, July 18, 2018 - 9:00am to Friday, July 20, 2018 - 4:00pm
Sant Feliu de Guixols, Spain

This workshop will bring together experts in the field of quantum hybrid ion-neutral systems with controllable properties. Research on ultracold atom-ion hybrid systems is a novel field of modern science and crosses boundaries between atomic physics, chemistry, and quantum information processing. It promises to lead to fundamental understanding of cold chemistry as well as system-bath interactions in many-body physics. An ion impurity interacting with a quantum bath of atoms is a nontrivial many-body model system with wide relevance to material systems. Furthermore, the interaction between atoms and ions can be controlled, e.g. via Rydberg states.
