Les Houches pre-doctoral school on “Quantum simulations with ultracold atomic gases”, September 13-24, 2021.

We are organizing a pre-doctoral school in Les Houches from 13 to 24 September 2021. This school is mainly intended for students at the early stage of their PhD. Depending on availability, a few applications from PhD students at a later stage in their graduate career could also be accepted, as well as junior post-doctorant researchers. It consists in a two weeks master course on the physics of cold atoms including the recent advances in this field. The first week will cover general aspects. The second week will focus more specifically on quantum simulations with cold atoms.

For more information, please visit the website: https://coldatoms2021.sciencesconf.org/ .

Lectures will be given (in English) by

Franck Pereira Dos Santos (LNE-SYRTE, Observatoire de Paris, France): Laser cooling and trapping

Ana Maria Rey (NIST-JILA, University of Colorado, USA): Ultra-cold collisions

Mikhail Baranov (University of Innsbruck, Austria): Quantum gases and superfluidity

David Clément (Laboratoire Charles Fabry, Institut d’Optique, France): Optical lattices

Monika Aidelsburger (University of Munich, Germany): Periodically driven optical lattices and topology

Hans-Peter Büchler (University of Stuttgart, Germany): Quantum magnetism

Thierry Giamarchi (University of Geneva, Switzerland): Quantum transport

Zoran Hadzibabic (University of Cambridge, UK): Non-equilibrium dynamics

Iacopo Carusotto (University of Trento, Italy): Quantum simulations with quantum fluids of light

The deadline for applications is June 13, 2021. The selection of the applicants will be done at the beginning of July.

The school is planned to be held in-person, but as the situation is always evolving due to the Covid-19, we will keep you updated.
