Gaia Mission and Ultracold UB at the Espai ciencia of the "Salo de l'Ensenyament 2017"

+Activities
+Workshops and fairs

he Institute of Cosmos Sciences and the Department of Quantum Physics and Astrophysics of the University of Barcelona will be represented by "Mission Gaia" and"Ultracold UB" workshops at this years "Saló de l'Ensenyament" (or "Learning Hall") which will take place from the 22nd through the 26th of March at Montjuic.

These two workshops will be held at the UB stand, coordinated by UB Divulga (UB Reports) at Espai Cičncia (the Science Space).

"Gaia Mission"

Instructors: N. Miret, S. Olarte

"Ultracold UB, Outreach on Quantum Mechanics and Ultracold Gases"

Participants will be able to learn about some of the most relevant phenomena of quantum mechanics, modeled after current research in physics laboratories on ultracold gases.
Quantum technologies will be of great importance in the near future incomputing and cryptography techniques and information handling. This makes it interesting for the general population to acquire a minimum familiarity with its most fascinating aspects. All the material in this workshop has been made in open code by university students of the Faculty of Physics of the University of Barcelona.

The workshop consists of computer simulations of several experiments in which the quantum properties of matter are revealed. For example, the simulation of the movement of a set of ultra-cold atoms trapped in a potential well (analogous with the movement of a pendulum), the simulation of the movement of a soliton of anatomic gas at 0 K, and the simulation of a quantum Newton pendulum. At the end of the workshop the participants will receive one of the simulations by e-mail.

Instructors: Professors: A. Polls, M. Guilleumas; Students: I. Moreno, M. Arazo & L. Morera
