Quantum simulations of insulators and conductors (QUIC)

Start date: Mar 1, 2015, End date: Feb 28, 2019,

It is now accepted that the conducting or insulating nature of matter is based on various separate ingredients (e.g. disorder, interactions, band filling, dimensionality, topology, etc.). However, their complex interplay is still beyond our understanding because experiments are very difficult and numerical calculations are often inefficient, even for supercomputers. In QUIC we want to achieve a br ...

Disorder physics with ultracold quantum gases (DISQUA)

Start date: Mar 1, 2010, End date: Feb 28, 2015,

"Disorder is ubiquitous in nature and has a strong impact on the behaviour of many physical systems. The most celebrated effect of disorder is Anderson localization of single particles, but many other more complex phenomena arise in interacting, many-body systems. A full understanding of how disorder affects the behavior of quantum systems is still missing, also because of the unavoidable presence ...

Fibrillar deposits of proteins are the hallmark of amyloid diseases, amongst which Alzheimer’s disease stands out as the most widespread neurodegenerative pathology of the brain. Neuronal dysfunction is currently attributed to the interaction of A-beta oligomers with the plasma membrane. Several scenarios have been proposed, but the mechanisms of binding of the oligomers to the cell membrane and t ...

STRONGLY INTERACTING 1D BOSE GASES (interact1Dboson)

Start date: May 1, 2009, End date: Aug 31, 2010,

The physics of interacting one-dimensional systems is very different from that of ordinary three-dimensional configurations. In systems where the dynamics is constrained to only one dimension, interactions play a special role since particles can not avoid each other. As a result, the behaviour of 1D systems turns out to be very peculiar and often counter-intuitive, making them very interesting to ...
