Speaker: Giovanni Barontini (University of Birmingham)

I will present our results on the thermodynamics of spin-1 Bose-Einstein Condensates, including our method to generate synthetic magnetization in an unmagnetized sample. Additionally, I will report on our progress towards the realization of a “quantum printer” that will allow us to (quantum) simulate a wide range physics phenomena. In particular, I will present our ideas to realize protected edge states in synthetic dimensions.  I will finally talk about our project to realize quantum engines using ultracold atomic mixtures and our latest results on the dissipative distillation of supercritical quantum gases.


We are a Research Cluster of the School of Mathematics and Physics at Queen’s University Belfast in Northern Ireland. Our research interests are focused primarily on computational and theoretical physics.
