Abstract:

We employ quantum simulation of interesting electronic materials using ultracold 6 Li atoms, a composite fermion, as stand-ins for the electrons Quantum simulation of this kind takes advantage of the capability to adhere to a theoretical model, while the tunability of model parameters enables quantitative comparison with theory.

Abstract:

Detections of neutron stars in binaries through gravitational waves offer a novel way to probe the properties of extremely dense matter. In this talk I will describe the properties of the signals we have observed, what they have already taught us, and what we expect to learn in the future. I will also discuss how information from gravitational waves can be combined and compared against other astrophysical and terrestrial probes of neutron star matter to unveil to the properties of the most dense material objects that we know of.

Related Upcoming Events:

When a continuous symmetry is spontaneously broken, collective modes emerge. Usually, their spectrum is dominated by the low-energy physics of massless Goldstone modes. Superconductors, that break U(1) symmetry, are different. Here, the Goldstone boson is gapped out due to the Anderson-Higgs mechanism. The superconducting condensate can therefore host a zoo of massive collective excitations that are stable for lack of a gapless decay channel.

and superfluid flows. The dynamical equation describing the wave-vortex interaction can be mapped to
scalar fields propagating on an effective rotating black hole. This opens the possibility of studying a

efforts resulting in the detection of geodesic motion, quasi-normal modes and superradiance in normal

Abstract:
Pulsars are rotating neutron stars which emit faint beams of electromagnetic radiation. In pulsar searches large effort is expended to discover these pulses in time- and frequency-resolved data from radio telescopes. Simultaneously recovering the frequency-dependent delay (dispersion) and the periodicity of the signal is a complex and demanding task, which is further exacerbated by the presence of various types of radio-frequency interference (RFI) and observing-system effects.

Abstract:

In this talk, I will discuss how matter systems can lose quantum coherence by interacting with an environment consisting of low-energy photons or gravitons. This process will be illustrated using a simple model of an interferometry experiment. I'll focus particularly on how earlier results - which identified a relationship between "soft" photons/gravitons and boundary terms in the electromagnetic and gravitational matter currents - allows one to easily quantify precisely how much decoherence is caused by "leading" and "sub-leading" soft radiation.
