Group Seminar via Zoom: Monitoring ultracold collisions with laser light
Prof. Dr. Olivier Dulieu, Laboratoire Aimé Cotton, Orsay Cedex
Group Meeting via video conference (Zoom)
Thursday, March 31st, 9:00 (MEZ)
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the group seminar will be a hybrid event, allowing participants to attend the seminar virtually and
in-person. This procedure enables us to continue our research, enhance discussions and exchange important information.
In this talk I will report on two ongoing projects of the theory group at Laboratoire Aim Cotton. First, we investigate the dynamics of ultracold ion-atom collisions in the context of hybrid traps: we model the impact of the various lasers which are inherent to the experiment on the dynamics of the system, which strongly influence the outgoing products. Second, we propose a way to monitor the interactions between ultracold molecules using laser light, which could represent an attractive alternative to allow for evaporative cooling in ultracold molecular samples on the way towards quantum degeneracy.
