UltraCold atomic physics  
Theoretical Ultracold Atomic Physics   Prof. Han Pu's research interest is in the field of theoretical ultracold atomic physics, which covers different aspects of the physics of BoseEinstein condensation, quantum degenerate Fermi gases, quantum optics and laser cooling and trapping. One of the most profound revolutions brought about by quantum mechanics is that it does away with the distinction between particles and waves: atoms, in particular, can exhibit all the properties that we associate with wave phenomena when cooled to ultracold temperatures. The development of these ideas leads to the emergence of the field of ultracold atomic physics, a highly interdisciplinary field with close ties to atomic physics, quantum optics, quantum information and condensed matter physics. One of the particular systems we have studied is the socalled spinor condensate, an atomic condensate with spin degrees of freedom. Due to the nonlinear spinexchange interaction, this system exhibits a variety of interesting behavior. Because of the close relation between atomic spin and its magnetic moment, a spinor condensate also represents a novel magnetic material. The effect of the longrange magnetic dipoledipole interaction on the system is currently under study in our group. Another system we are interested in involves quantum gases subject to synthetic Gauge field and/or spinorbit coupling. Under proper condition, new topological quantum states are supported by this system. The novelty of the atomic systems lies in the fact that these systems are very clean with great experimental controllability, such that their properties can be exquisitely tailored and manipulated. We are interested in a number of phenomena displayed by cold atoms related to vortex matter, such as the ground state structures, dynamics, collective excitations, quantum phase transitions, quantum melting of vortex lattices, etc. Besides cold atoms, we are also interested in cold molecules, which are not merely a natural extension of the former, but possess many compelling properties of their own. Finally, we are also interested in the study of ultracold Fermi gases, in particular the superfluid properties of fermions when there is attractive interaction between them. The study of ultracold atomic physics, on the one hand, touches the very fundamentals of quantum mechanics with broader impact in other fields such as condensed matter physics; on the other hand, also shows great promises in applications such as ultraprecision measurement, time standard, weak signal detection, quantum computing, etc.   Teaching Areas   Phys571, 572, 311, 312, 521, 522, 112
