International Winter School on Open Quantum Many-Body Systems

The Collaborative Research Center Open System Control of Atomic and Photonic Matter (OSCAR) explores the physics of open quantum many-body systems across different experimental platforms. Apart from basic research in this field the integrated young reseacher training program i-OSCAR guarantees education of the highest quality standards for the involved doctoral students and early postdocs. As a particular educational measure our SFB will organize an International Winter School on Open Quantum Many-Body Systems, which takes place in the Evangelische Adademie in Tutzing (Germany), in the period February 20-23, 2023. The lectures focus on three research areas, which are of central importance of OSCAR and will be discussed from both the experimental and the theoretical point of view:

(1) BEC-BCS Crossover

a) Taira Kawamura (Yokohama, Japan): Non-equilibrium BCS-BEC crossover in a strongly interacting driven-dissipative Fermi gas

b) Henning Moritz (Hamburg, Germany): Comparing fermionic superfluids in two and three dimensions

2) Hybrid Quantum Systems

a) Michael Thorwart (Hamburg, Germany): Nonequilibrium quantum phase transitions in hybrid atom-optomechanical systems

b) Philipp Treutlein (Basel, Switzerland): Light-mediated interactions in atomic and optomechanical systems

3) Topology

a) Alexander Altland (Cologne, Germany): Topological quantum matter

b) Christoph Weitenberg (Hamburg, Germany): Detecting topology with ultracold atoms

Deadline for registration: 31.12.2022
