Content
Introduction to modern atomic physics with ultracold atoms and photons. The basic theoretical tools for atom optics and quantum optics will be introduced. Basic topics include
 
  • atom-light interactions
  • cooling and trapping neutral and charged atoms and molecules
  • degenerate quantum gases
  • quantum manipulation and detection of atomic states
  • ultracold collisions
  • and others which provide the foundations for contemporary research in AMO physics.

 

Recent research works will be also covered including many-body states in optical lattices and synthetic topological states in ultracold atoms.
