The workshop is a satellite meeting to ICAP 2018, held in Barcelona, Spain, from July 22-27, 2018.
The 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.
