Simulating non-Abelian gauge fields with cold atoms and ions

Special colloquium session of the workshop QCD-TNT-III
Speaker: 
J-I Cirac, M. Dalmonte and M. Rizzi
Date: 
03 Sep 2013 - 15:00
Location: 
ECT* Conference room
Abstract: 

This special session within the context of the international workshop "QCD-TNT-III From quarks and gluons to hadronic matter: A bridge too far?" aims at summarizing the state-of-the-art, as well as highlighting the future perspectives, of simulating non-Abelian (confining) gauge theories using ultracold neutral atoms trapped in optical lattices, and other systems. The scheduled speakers are

  • 15:00-16:00    Juan-Ignacio Cirac (MPQ, Garching), Quantum simulation of High energy models with cold atoms
  • 16:00-16:45    Marcello Dalmonte (IQOQI, Innsbruck), The cold atom lattice gauge toolbox: juggling between high-energy and AMO physics
  • 16:45-17:30    Matteo Rizzi (University of Mainz), An optical lattice based quantum simulator for relativistic fermions and topological insulators

It is expected that this session will lead to a lively discussion and cross-fertilization of ideas coming from the different and complementary expertise of the attendees.
