Participants will be able to learn about some of the most relevant phenomena of quantum mechanics, taking as an example the current research in physics laboratories of ultracold gases. Quantum technologies will be of great importance in the near future in both computing and cryptography techniques and information handling. This makes it essential that the whole population acquires a minimum familiarity with its most fascinating aspects. All the material of this workshop has been made in open code by university course students of the Faculty of Physics of the University of Barcelona.

The workshop consists of making simulations with computers of several experiments in which the quantum properties of matter are revealed. In particular, the simulation of the movement of a set of ultra-cold atoms trapped in a potential well (analogy with the movement of a pendulum), the simulation of the movement of a soliton in an atomic gas at temperature 0 K or the simulation of a quantum Newton pendulum.

Software made in open code by the students of the Physics Faculty of the UB.

 

The package will contain initially three modules:

  • Quantum mechanics module. To exemplify some basic aspects of quantum mechanics
  • Bright solitons module. Allows the user to play with Bright solitons pinched on a 1D Bose-Einstein condensate
  • Dark solitons module. Allows the user to play with a dark soliton pinched on a 1D Bose-Einstein condensate
