Quantum matter far-from-equilibrium (2017–2019)

Abstract:
The project seeks to develop a new theoretical approach stochastic quantum hydrodynamics to make a breakthrough in our understanding of non-equilibrium dynamics of quantum fluids and superfluids formed by ultra-cold atomic gases. The question of how quantum matter evolves when driven far-from-equilibrium has been identified as a grand challenge of basic energy sciences, and is of interest for understanding systems ranging from cold fusion reactors to the early inflationary universe. The intended outcome of the project ¿ an improved understanding of quantum many-body dynamics ¿ may impact on a range of emerging quantum technologies, from atomtronics and dynamical quantum emulators to creating new energy-efficient materials.
