Quantum Transport with ultracold atoms

International Workshop
29 August - 2 September 2022

Modern experiments with ultracold atoms allow us to study the coherent nature of quantum transport in clean and scalable realizations, governed by time-scales much different from electronic devices. This has the potential to produce functional devices based on coherent components for “quantumtronics“. We want to provide a platform for the different experimental realizations, the theoretical modelling of quantum many-body transport setups, as well as the various overlapping communities from transport, dynamics and quantum optics. The workshop aims at stimulating new concepts for an optimized implementation of transport setups, with the long-term goal to realize new quantum- enhanced technologies based on neutral-atom transport.

Topics include

  • ultracold quantum gases
  • quantum many-body physics
  • quantum circuits
  • quantum simulation
  • neutral atom transport
  • tailored potential landscapes
  • spin-orbit coupling
  • Floquet engineering
  • quantum scattering theory
  • matter-wave guides
  • hybrid quantum systems
