Title  Quantum Simulations with Photons and Polaritons : Merging Quantum Optics with Condensed Matter Physics 
Author(s)  Angelakis, Dimitris G 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XIII, 214 p. 86 illus., 77 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book reviews progress towards quantum simulators based on photonic and hybrid lightmatter systems, covering theoretical proposals and recent experimental work. Quantum simulators are specially designed quantum computers. Their main aim is to simulate and understand complex and inaccessible quantum manybody phenomena found or predicted in condensed matter physics, materials science and exotic quantum field theories. Applications will include the engineering of smart materials, robust optical or electronic circuits, deciphering quantum chemistry and even the design of drugs. Technological developments in the fields of interfacing light and matter, especially in manybody quantum optics, have motivated recent proposals for quantum simulators based on strongly correlated photons and polaritons generated in hybrid lightmatter systems. The latter have complementary strengths to cold atom and ion based simulators and they can probe for example out of equilibrium phenomena in a natural drivendissipative setting. This book covers some of the most important works in this area reviewing the proposal for Mott transitions and Luttinger liquid physics with light, to simulating interacting relativistic theories, topological insulators and gauge field physics. The stage of the field now is at a point where on top of the numerous theory proposals; experiments are also reported. Connecting to the theory proposals presented in the chapters, the main experimental quantum technology platforms developed from groups worldwide to realize photonic and polaritonic simulators in the laboratory are also discussed. These include coupled microwave resonator arrays in superconducting circuits, semiconductor based polariton systems, and integrated quantum photonic chips. This is the first book dedicated to photonic approaches to quantum simulation, reviewing the fundamentals for the researcher new to the field, and providing a complete reference for the graduate student starting or already undergoing PhD studies in this area

Title  Heteronuclear Efimov Scenario in Ultracold Quantum Gases : Universality in Systems with Large Mass Imbalance 
Author(s)  Ulmanis, Juris 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XVIII, 125 p. 45 illus., 44 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis represents a decisive breakthrough in our understanding of the physics of universal quantummechanical threebody systems. The Efimov scenario is a prime example of how fundamental fewbody physics features universally across seemingly disparate fields of modern quantum physics. Initially postulated for nuclear physics more than 40 years ago, the Efimov effect has now become a new research paradigm not only in ultracold atomic gases but also in molecular, biological and condensed matter systems. Despite a lot of effort since its first observations, the scaling behavior, which is a hallmark property and often referred to as the ???holy grail??? of Efimov physics, remained hidden until recently. In this work, the author demonstrates this behavior for the first time for a heteronuclear mixture of ultracold Li and Cs atoms, and pioneers the experimental understanding of microscopic, nonuniversal properties in such systems. Based on the application of BornOppenheimer approximation, well known from molecular physics textbooks, an exceptionally clear and intuitive picture of heteronuclear Efimov physics is revealed

Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XIV, 416 p. 123 illus., 12 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Thermal processes are ubiquitous and an understanding of thermal phenomena is essential for a complete description of the physics of nanoparticles, both for the purpose of modeling the dynamics of the particles and for the correct interpretation of experimental data. The second edition of this book follows the logic of first edition, with an emphasis on presentation of literature results and to guide the reader through derivations. Several topics have been added to the repertoire, notably magnetism, a fuller exposition of aggregation and the related area of nucleation theory. Also a new chapter has been added on the transient hot electron phenomenon. The book remains focused on the fundamental properties of nanosystems in the gas phase. Each chapter is enriched with more new exercises and three Appendices provide additional useful material

Title  Interferometry with Interacting BoseEinstein Condensates in a DoubleWell Potential 
Author(s)  Berrada, Tarik 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XIX, 229 p. 89 illus., 67 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis demonstrates a full Mach???Zehnder interferometer with interacting Bose???Einstein condensates confined on an atom chip. It relies on the coherent manipulation of atoms trapped in a magnetic doublewell potential, for which the author developed a novel type of beam splitter. Particlewave duality enables the construction of interferometers for matter waves, which complement optical interferometers in precision measurement devices, both for technological applications and fundamental tests. This requires the development of atomoptics analogues to beam splitters, phase shifters and recombiners. Particle interactions in the Bose???Einstein condensate lead to a nonlinearity, absent in photon optics. This is exploited to generate a nonclassical state with reduced atomnumber fluctuations inside the interferometer. This state is then used to study the interactioninduced dephasing of the quantum superposition. The resulting coherence times are found to be a factor of three longer than expected for coherent states, highlighting the potential of entanglement as a resource for quantumenhanced metrology

Title  Lectures on Quantum Statistics : With Applications to Dilute Gases and Plasmas 
Author(s)  Ebeling, Werner;P??schel, Thorsten 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2019. 
Description  X, 271 p. 49 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  Most of the matter in our universe is in a gaseous or plasma state. Yet, most textbooks on quantum statistics focus on examples from and applications in condensed matter systems, due to the prevalence of solids and liquids in our daytoday lives. In an attempt to remedy that oversight, this book consciously focuses on teaching the subject matter in the context of (dilute) gases and plasmas, while aiming primarily at graduate students and young researchers in the field of quantum gases and plasmas for some of the more advanced topics. The majority of the material is based on a twosemester course held jointly by the authors over many years, and has benefited from extensive feedback provided by countless students and coworkers. The book also includes many historical remarks on the roots of quantum statistics: firstly because students appreciate and are strongly motivated by looking back at the history of a given field of research, and secondly because the spirit permeating this book has been deeply influenced by meetings and discussions with several pioneers of quantum statistics over the past few decades

Title  Quantum Brownian Motion Revisited : Extensions and Applications 
Author(s)  Lampo, Aniello;Garc??a March, Miguel ??ngel;Lewenstein, Maciej 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2019. 
Description  VI, 109 p. 22 illus., 20 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Quantum Brownian motion represents a paradigmatic model of open quantum system, namely a system inextricably coupled to the surrounding environment. Such a model is largely used in physics, for instance in quantum foundations to approach in a quantitative manner the quantumtoclassical transition, but also for more practical purposes as the estimation of decoherence in quantum optics experiments. This book presents the main techniques aimed to treat the dynamics of the quantum Brownian particle: BornMarkov master equation, Lindblad equation and Heisenberg equations formalism. Particular attention is given to the interaction between the particle and the bath depends nonlinearly on the position of the former. This generalization corresponds to the case in which the bath is not homogeneous. An immediate application is the Bose polaron, specifically an impurity embedded in an ultracold gas
