NITheP Research Workshop: Nonequilibrium physics of driven-dissipative many-body systems
In recent years, there has been much progress in realizing systems with many degrees of freedom, and in which matter can be strongly coupled to light. This has been achieved in several experimental setups: ultracold atoms in optical lattices, Bose-Einstein condensates (BEC), semiconductor quantum wells, arrays of microcavities or trapped ions, and optomechanical systems. Such systems share certain important properties. First, they can be driven far out of equilibrium by applying coherent electromagnetic fields. Second, these systems can undergo coherent and dissipative dynamics on similar time scales. Both aspects render theoretical studies of these systems challenging and have spurred important efforts to develop new approaches. This workshop will bring together a select group of leading experimentalists and theorists in the field to exchange results from state-of-the-art research and provide opportunities for discussions and new collaborations on this important topic.
