[PhD Thesis Presentation] -Daisuke Takahashi- Minimal Gauged U(1) Extension of the Standard Model with Classical Scale Invariance and Phenomenology2018-01-29
Speaker: Daisuke Takahashi
Speaker: Dr. Westermann
I will discuss two experiments at the University of Auckland. In the first experiment we consider a two dimensional Bose gas in an "atomtronic" circuit. We will look at the effects of Anderson localization and of quantum turbulence.
In the second experiment we consider an optical nanofiber, which is part of a fiberoptic ring resonator, interacting with atoms in a MOT. We see strong coupling between atoms and photons, and show saturation of the system for 13 photons in the resonator.
Dr. Hooglerland's expertised field
My research is been centered around the interaction and correspondence between light and matter, and the application of its principles to other areas of research. At low temperatures, matter can be made to behave much like light, i.e., best described by waves. In its interaction with such matter, light can behave like it is composed of particles. Laser cooling and trapping forms a key technique in understanding this interplay. I apply these cooling and trapping techniques to experimental research areas of fundamental atomic physics, quantum chaos, quantum information, and atom lasers. From this research emerges a deeper understanding of the quantum world, which determines in turn what happens in the world around us. Spin-offs from this research I am involved with are improved spectroscopic techniques, laser techniques, interferometric high-precision measurements and atomic beam applications.
