Colloquia


Colloquia

We plan to return partly to in-person talks. These talks will be held in the interim lecture hall B 0.32 at MPQ and can additionally be attended online. Some talks remain online only.

2G regulations apply to in-person talks, i.e. every time you wish to participate in person, you will have to prove, e.g. with the CovPass-App, that you are vaccinated or recovered. Whether facemasks have to be worn inside the lecture hall will be decided on short notice. In any case, you will need a medical facemask in the hallway. Audience not affiliated with MPQ are welcome to join in person as long as they meet 2G criteria.

Details on how to participate online are distributed via the mailing lists [wiss-mpq] and [Mpq-colloquium-stream]. To receive this information, please register using the adjacent link.

Scientific organization of the talks:  Dr. Stephan Dürr and Dr. Thomas Udem

Speaker: Prof. Dr. Monika Aidelsburger Location: +++ONLINE KOLLOQUIUM+++
Well-controlled synthetic quantum systems, such as ultracold atoms in optical lattices, offer intriguing possibilities to study complex many-body problems in regimes that are beyond reach using state-of-the-art numerical techniques. This enables us, for instance, to shed new light on fundamental questions about the thermalization of isolated quantum many-body systems. Recently, a class of models has been identified that lies in between the extreme limits of thermal and localizing behavior. Here ergodicity-breaking occurs due to an emergent fragmentation of the many-body Hilbert space. A versatile platform that paves the way towards studying these phenomena is the 1D Fermi-Hubbard model with a strong linear potential. [more]
