Novel ultracold hybrid ion-atom systems and their applications
January 21st, 2019 MICHAL TOMZA University of Warsaw

Hybrid systems of laser-cooled trapped ions and ultracold atoms combined in a single experimental setup have recently emerged as a new platform for fundamental research in quantum physics and chemistry [1]. I will present our recent progress in description and understanding of such systems. I will show how ab initio electronic structure and mutli-channel scattering calculations can support and guide related quantum physics experiments. I will also present our theoretical proposals of novel systems for cold ion-atom experiments using ions or atoms other than alkali-metal or alkaline-earth-metal ones.
