Dynamics of quantum control in cold-atom systems
The dynamics of mesoscopic two-boson systems that model an interacting pair of ultracold alkali atoms in the presence of electromagnetic potentials are considered. The translational degrees of freedom of such a system can ...
Manipulation and quantum control of ultracold atoms and molecules for precision measurements
This thesis reports on two experiments which aim at developing techniques for the next generation precision measurement experiments to search for a permanent electric dipole moment (EDM) of an atom or molecule. In ...
Controlling atomic motion: from single particle classical mechanics to many body quantum dynamics
This dissertation covers a series of experiments designed to control atomic motion. The experiments progress from being completely classical in nature to being described by many-body quantum mechanical models. The first ...
Floquet theory and continued fractions for harmonically driven systems
We derive an exact solution using continued fractions for a quantum particle scattering from an oscillating delta-function potential. We study its transmission properties such as: Transmission zeros, transmission poles ...
