EXPERIMENTS WITH DISPERSION ENGINEERED BOSE-EINSTEIN CONDENSATES: RAMAN DRESSING AND NOVEL OPTICAL LATTICES
This thesis aims at the investigation of complex condensed matterphenomena using quantum degenerate ultra-cold atomic gases as awell-controlled model system. The phenomena range from a novelspin-momentum coupling and ...
Quantum Hydrodynamics in One- and Two-Component Bose-Einstein Condensates
Several prototypical experiments concerning quantum hydrodynamics are realized in this thesis using one and two-component Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs). The experiments are conducted with an experimental apparatus built ...
Nonlinear optics near the fundamental limits
The nonlinear optical response of materials on the fastest time scale is ultimately determined by the quantum mechanical properties of the material's electronic configuration. This response is limited by the amount of ...
