Title  Fluctuations and NonEquilibrium Phenomena in StronglyCorrelated Ultracold Atoms 
Author(s)  Nagao, Kazuma 
Publication  Singapore, Springer Singapore, 2020. 
Description  XIX, 112 p. 36 illus., 18 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book discusses nonequilibrium quantum manybody dynamics, recently explored in an analog quantum simulator of strongly correlated ultracold atoms. The first part presents a fieldtheoretical analysis of the experimental observability of the Higgs amplitude mode that emerges as a relativistic collective excitation near a quantum phase transition of superfluid Bose gases in an optical lattice potential. The author presents the dynamical susceptibilities to external driving of the microscopic parameters, taking into account a leadingorder perturbative correction from quantum and thermal fluctuations and shows clear signatures of the Higgs mode in these observables. This is the first result that strongly supports the stability of the Higgs mode in threedimensional optical lattices even in the presence of a spatially inhomogeneous confinement potential and paves the way for desktop observations of the Higgs mode. In the second part, the author applies the semiclassical truncatedWigner approximation (TWA) to farfromequilibrium quantum dynamics. Specifically, he considers the recent experiments on quantumquench dynamics in a BoseHubbard quantum simulator. A direct comparison shows remarkable agreement between the numerical results from TWA and the experimental data. This result clearly indicates the potential of such a semiclassical approach in reliably simulating manybody systems using classical computers. The book also includes several chapters providing comprehensive reviews of the recent studies on coldatomic quantum simulation and various theoretical methods, including the Schwingerboson approach in strongly correlated systems and the phasespace semiclassical method for farfromequilibrium quantum dynamics. These chapters are highly recommended to students and young researchers who are interested in semiclassical approaches in nonequilibrium quantum dynamics

Title  Trapping Single Ions and Coulomb Crystals with Light Fields 
Author(s)  Karpa, Leon 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2019. 
Description  XIII, 48 p. 20 illus., 18 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book describes the stateoftheart in the emerging field of optical trapping of ions, as well as the most recent advances enabling the use of this technique as a versatile tool for novel investigations in atomic physics. The text provides a detailed explanation of the requirements for optical trapping of ions, replete with a protocol for optical ion trapping, including preparation, transfer, and detection. The book also highlights the experimental requirements for extending the presented scheme to optical trapping of linear ion chains. Lastly, this text elaborates on the key features of the described approach, such as the capability to arrange single strongly interacting atoms in scalable, stateselective and wavelengthsized optical potentials without the detrimental impact of driven radiofrequency fields conventionally used to trap ions. The described results demonstrate that the developed methods are suitable for new experimental investigations, most notably in the field of ultracold interaction of ions and atoms, but also in quantum simulations and metrology. The book's practical bent is perfect for anyone attempting to build an experiment related to the field or understand the limitations behind current experiments

Title  Photoassociation of Ultracold CsYb Molecules and Determination of Interspecies Scattering Lengths 
Author(s)  Guttridge, Alexander 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2019. 
Description  XV, 196 p. 75 illus., 71 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis lays the groundwork for producing a new class of ultracold molecule by associating an alkalimetal atom and a closedshell alkalineearthlike atom, specifically Cs and Yb. Such molecules exhibit both a magnetic dipole moment and an electric dipole moment in their ground state. This extra degree of freedom opens up new avenues of research including the study of exotic states of matter, the shielding of molecular collisions and the simulation of lattice spin models. In detail, the thesis reports the first and only ultracold mixture of Cs and Yb in the world, giving details of the methods used to cool such contrasting atomic species together. Using sensitive twocolour photoassociation measurements to measure the binding energies of the nearthreshold CsYb molecular levels in the electronic ground state has allowed the previously unknown scattering lengths to be accurately determined for all the Cs???Yb isotopic combinations. As part of this work, the onephoton photoassociation of ultracold Cs*Yb is also studied, yielding useful information on the excitedstate potential. Knowledge of the scattering lengths enables a strategy to be devised to cool both species to quantum degeneracy and, crucially, determines the positions of interspecies Feshbach resonances required for efficient association of groundstate CsYb molecules. With these results, the prospect of bringing a new molecule into the ultracold regime has become considerably closer.

Title  Quantum???Enhanced Sensing Based on Time Reversal of Entangling Interactions 
Author(s)  Linnemann, Daniel 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XVIII, 165 p. 64 illus., 63 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Quantum mechanics entails effects like superpositions and entanglement, which have no classical counterparts. From a technological standpoint these counterintuitive quantum aspects can be viewed as an unexploited resource that can be harnessed to support various tasks, e.g. in the domains of computation, communication, and metrology. In many applications, however, the potential of nonclassical states cannot practically be exploited due to detection inefficiencies. The authors address this limitation by experimentally realizing a novel detection scheme in which entangling interactions are time reversed. In this way, nonclassical manyparticle states are disentangled, allowing them to be detected in a robust and technically feasible manner. In the context of quantum metrology, these nonlinear readout techniques extend the class of entangled probe states that can be leveraged for sensing applications without being limited by finite detector resolution. The authors present an active atom interferometer, where both the entangled state preparation and disentangling readout involve parametric amplification. This ???SU(1,1)??? interferometer is implemented with the help of spinor Bose???Einstein condensates, where amplification is implemented by atomic collisions leading to spin exchange

Title  Classical Analogies in the Solution of Quantum ManyBody Problems 
Author(s)  Keser, Ayd??n Cem 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XVII, 99 p. 11 illus., 8 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book addresses problems in three main developments in modern condensed matter physics??? namely topological superconductivity, manybody localization and strongly interacting condensates/superfluids???by employing fruitful analogies from classical mechanics. This strategy has led to tangible results, firstly in superconducting nanowires: the density of states, a smoking gun for the long sought Majorana zero mode is calculated effortlessly by mapping the problem to a textbooklevel classical point particle problem. Secondly, in localization theory even the simplest toy models that exhibit manybody localization are mathematically cumbersome and results rely on simulations that are limited by computational power. In this book an alternative viewpoint is developed by describing manybody localization in terms of quantum rotors that have incommensurate rotation frequencies, an exactly solvable system. Finally, the fluctuations in a strongly interacting Bose condensate and superfluid, a notoriously difficult system to analyze from first principles, are shown to mimic stochastic fluctuations of spacetime due to quantum fields. This analogy not only allows for the computation of physical properties of the fluctuations in an elegant way, it sheds light on the nature of spacetime. The book will be a valuable contribution for its unifying style that illuminates conceptually challenging developments in condensed matter physics and its use of elegant mathematical models in addition to producing new and concrete results

Title  Exciton Transport Phenomena in GaAs Coupled Quantum Wells 
Author(s)  Leonard, Jason 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XI, 59 p. 10 illus., 5 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis presents results crucial to the emerging field of indirect excitons. These specially designed quasiparticles give the unique opportunity to study fundamental properties of quantum degenerate Bose gases in semiconductors. Furthermore, indirect excitons allow for the creation of novel optoelectronic devices where excitons are used in place of electrons. Excitonic devices are explored for the development of advanced signal processing seamlessly coupled with optical communication. The thesis presents and describes the author's imaging experiments that led to the discovery of spin transport of excitons. The many firsts presented herein include the first studies of an excitonic conveyer, leading to the discovery of the dynamical localizationdelocalization transition for excitons, and the first excitonic ramp and excitonic diode with no energydissipating voltage gradient.??

Title  Quantum Physics of Light and Matter : Photons, Atoms, and Strongly Correlated Systems 
Author(s)  Salasnich, Luca 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XI, 244 p. 9 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This compact but exhaustive textbook, now in its significantly revised and expanded second edition, provides an essential introduction to the field quantization of light and matter with applications to atomic physics and strongly correlated systems. Following an initial review of the origins of special relativity and quantum mechanics, individual chapters are devoted to the second quantization of the electromagnetic field and the consequences of light field quantization for the description of electromagnetic transitions. The spin of the electron is then analyzed, with particular attention to its derivation from the Dirac equation. Subsequent topics include the effects of external electric and magnetic fields on the atomic spectra and the properties of systems composed of many interacting identical particles. The book also provides a detailed explanation of the second quantization of the nonrelativistic matter field, i.e., the Schr??dinger field, which offers a powerful tool for the investigation of manybody problems, and of atomic quantum optics and entanglement. Finally, two new chapters introduce the finitetemperature functional integration of bosonic and fermionic fields for the study of macroscopic quantum phenomena: superfluidity and superconductivity. Several solved problems are included at the end of each chapter, helping readers put into practice all that they have learned

Title  Quantum ManyBody Physics in Open Systems: Measurement and Strong Correlations 
Author(s)  Ashida, Yuto 
Publication  Singapore, Springer Singapore, 2020. 
Description  XXI, 228 p. 56 illus., 52 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book studies the fundamental aspects of manybody physics in quantum systems open to an external world. Recent remarkable developments in the observation and manipulation of quantum matter at the singlequantum level point to a new research area of open manybody systems, where interactions with an external observer and the environment play a major role. The first part of the book elucidates the influence of measurement backaction from an external observer, revealing new types of quantum critical phenomena and outofequilibrium dynamics beyond the conventional paradigm of closed systems. In turn, the second part develops a powerful theoretical approach to study the in and outofequilibrium physics of an open quantum system strongly correlated with an external environment, where the entanglement between the system and the environment plays an essential role. The results obtained here offer essential theoretical results for understanding the manybody physics of quantum systems open to an external world, and can be applied to experimental systems in atomic, molecular and optical physics, quantum information science and condensed matter physics

Author(s)  Iaizzi, Adam 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XIX, 156 p. 34 illus., 31 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis is a tourdeforce combination of analytic and computational results clarifying and resolving important questions about the nature of quantum phase transitions in one and twodimensional magnetic systems. The author presents a comprehensive study of a lowdimensional spinhalf quantum antiferromagnet (the JQ model) in the presence of a magnetic field in both one and two dimensions, demonstrating the causes of metamagnetism in such systems and providing direct evidence of fractionalized excitations near the deconfined quantum critical point. In addition to describing significant new research results, this thesis also provides the nonexpert with a clear understanding of the nature and importance of computational physics and its role in condensed matter physics as well as the nature of phase transitions, both classical and quantum. It also contains an elegant and detailed but accessible summary of the methods used in the thesis???exact diagonalization, Monte Carlo, quantum Monte Carlo and the stochastic series expansion???that will serve as a valuable pedagogical introduction to students beginning in this field

Title  Paritytime Symmetry and Its Applications 
Author(s)  Christodoulides, Demetrios;Yang, Jianke 
Publication  Singapore, Springer Singapore, 2018. 
Description  XV, 579 p. 225 illus., 214 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book offers a comprehensive review of the stateoftheart theoretical and experimental advances in linear and nonlinear paritytimesymmetric systems in various physical disciplines, and surveys the emerging applications of paritytime (PT) symmetry. PT symmetry originates from quantum mechanics, where if the Schrodinger operator satisfies the PT symmetry, then its spectrum can be all real. This concept was later introduced into optics, BoseEinstein condensates, metamaterials, electric circuits, acoustics, mechanical systems and many other fields, where a judicious balancing of gain and loss constitutes a PTsymmetric system. Even though these systems are dissipative, they exhibit many signature properties of conservative systems, which make them mathematically and physically intriguing. Important PTsymmetry applications have also emerged. This book describes the latest advances of PT symmetry in a wide range of physical areas, with contributions from the leading experts. It is intended for researchers and graduate students to enter this research frontier, or use it as a reference book.
