Fundamental Science and Applications of Ultracold Polar Molecules

22 Jan 2013 - 29 Mar 2013

Coordinators: Lincoln Carr, Paul Julienne, Roman Krems, Susanne Yelin 

Scientific Advisors: Dave DeMille, John Doyle, Hanns-Christoph Nägerl, Jun Ye

Research into cold and ultracold molecules is now reaching the forefront of ultracold physics, giving rise to an exciting array of scientific opportunities. In particular, ultracold molecules can be used as a platform for new studies of quantum many-body physics, new states of matter, quantum optics, quantum information processing, quantum simulation, precision tests of fundamental physical laws, and chemistry in a new, entirely quantum, regime. This workshop will bring together researchers from many, traditionally disjoint, fields in order to explore these applications of ultracold molecules and identify new research directions made possible by the creation of ultracold molecules. The discussion will focus on, but not be limited to, the following topics:

  • Chemical interactions of molecules at subKelvin temperatures.
  • Few-body physics, such as Efimov states and three-body recombination of ultracold polar molecules.
  • Fundamental symmetry tests with cold molecules.
  • Quantum Information with ultracold molecules.
  • Many body physics and quantum simulation with new internal degrees of freedom.
  • Advances in molecular cooling techniques.
  • New applications of ultracold molecules.
