QUANTUM PHYSICS WITH ATOMS AND IONS
PhD School of Physics
University of Padova, 2020-2021
The course gives an introduction to quantum phenomena with atoms and ions
which are currently under intensive investigations:
Bose-Einstein condensation, topological quantum states, and ion
quantum computers. Both experimental and theoretical methods and
techniques will be discussed and analyzed.
1. Bose-Einstein condensation with ultracold alkali-metal atoms (4 h, LS).
