Quantum electron scattering

The second quantum revolution is upon us and atomic molecular and optical (AMO) physics is the discipline leading this revolution. Major advances in cooling and trapping of atoms and molecules in the last three decades now allow practitioners to create exotic many-body systems whose properties and behavior are predicated on fluctuations inherent in quantum systems. The ultracold AMO systems can be precisely and exquisitely interrogated and manipulated to engineer few-body interactions that “nature” may not naturally provide. I’ll draw on some fundamental physics concepts to elucidate a few of these quantum many-body features.
