The sound of fermions

Physics Colloquium

Fermions, particles with half-integer spin like the electron, proton and neutron, obey the Pauli principle: They cannot share one and the same quantum state. This “anti social” behavior is directly observed in experiments with ultracold gases of fermionic atoms: Pauli blocking in momentum space for a free Fermi gas, and in real space in gases confined to an optical lattice. When fermions interact, new, rather “social” behavior emerges, i.e. hydrodynamic flow, superfluidity and magnetism. The interplay of Pauli’s principle and strong interactions poses great difficulties to our understanding of complex Fermi systems, from nuclei to high-temperature superconducting materials and neutron stars. I will describe experiments on atomic Fermi gases where interactions become as strong as allowed by quantum mechanics – the unitary Fermi gas, fermions immersed in a Bose gas and the Fermi-Hubbard lattice gas. Sound and heat transport distinguish collisionally hydrodnamic from superfluid flow, while spin transport reveals the underlying mechanism responsible for quantum magnetism.

From Fingertip Mechanics to Tactile Sensation

  • 13 June 2018 • 14:30 18:00
  • Eurohaptics 2018

It is well known that the dynamics of the interacting finger mediate the human tactile sensation of materials and textures but its contact dynamics also contribute to other aspects of human cognition such as proprioceptive perception and our capacity to dexterously manipulate objects. The broad range of perceptual phenomena stemming from finger mechanics makes it essential to develop further our understanding of the finger behavior during interaction and its perceptual consequences.

Second Max Planck ETH Workshop on Learning Control

  • 08 February 2018 - 09 February 2018
  • ETH Zurich, Switzerland

After a successful first edition in 2015, we are pleased to announce the second workshop on Learning Control within the Max Planck ETH Center for Learning Systems. The workshop will take place February 8-9 2018 at ETH Zurich. We cordially invite all researchers from ETH Zürich and MPI-IS interested in the area of Learning Control to participate and actively contribute to this workshop.
