General Relativity in the Lab

Wintersemester 2023/2024

Prof. Dr. Markus Oberthaler
KIP, SB 1.107
Monday 16:15-17:45
Already in 1981 Bill Unruh discussed the possibilities to observe Black-Hole evaporation in a lab. This triggered a field known as analog gravity, a topic which nowadays is in direct connection to quantum field simulations in atomic physics. In this seminar we will discuss original literature on proposals as well as on experimental realizations of physics in the context of general relativity. We will also explore the connections to the latest developments on experimental quantum simulations in the context of more general quantum field theories.
