Condensed Matter-AMO Journal Club: "Supersolidity in ultracold atoms"

Speaker William Morong
Date: 4/27/2017
Time: 4 p.m.
Location:

Sponsor:

Department of Physics

Event Type: Seminar/Symposium
 

After many years of controversy over the existence of supersolid phases in condensed matter systems, two groups have recently claimed to realize this behavior using ultracold Bose-Einstein condensates with self-generated density modulations. I will discuss these claims, focusing on the paper of Léonard et al (arXiv:1609.09053).
