Toward Ultracold Atoms for Quantum Thermalization Studies
MetadataShow full item record
Ultracold atoms are a great platform to understand one of the most interesting open problems in physics: quantum thermalization. Building a new lab for ultracold atoms is a challenging task for the various tools that need to be built. In this thesis, the tools tackled are used for cooling and control. For cooling, a potential Zeeman slower was designed and built with the future task of being tested on cesium atoms. For control, an interlock and a current controller circuits were built, and an AOM driver was significantly improved. Finally, we will provide a review of the experiments made with ultracold atoms to study thermalization, and we will show how we are planning to use our tools to join the other labs in the quest to find answers for quantum thermalization.
