FirenzeLENS (Università di Firenze)/CNR-INOQuantum gasesExperimentalquantum simulation, quantum sensing and methrology, basic scienceIn our labs we use lasers and magnetic fields to produce the lowest temperatures of the Universe, just a few billionths of a degree above absolute zero. At these temperatures, atoms stop moving and we can control them for a variety of different fundamental studies and applications. We can force atoms to arrange according to a periodic structure and simulate the behavior of crystalline solids and new materials. We can use the atoms as ultra-high accurate sensors to probe forces with the power of quantum mechanics. We can study how quantum particles combine together under the action of strong interactions and how superfluidity develops. We can use these ultracold atoms to process information and develop new quantum technologies.

We already demonstrated quantum behaviors at the macroscopic level, by reaching Bose-Einstein condensation and superfluidity at room temperature, as well as the entanglement of a photon-polariton pair and single polariton interference. Now, we focus on many body quantum effects in fluids of light, topological properties in engineered materials and nonlinear logic gates for quantum circuits.18Daniele Sanvittodaniele.sanvitto@nanotec.cnr.it
