Scale Invariance in Atomic Physics: from Efimov states to Fermions at Unitarity

November 19, 2012 - 12:30pm
Wilhelm Zwerger
Technical University in Munich

The talk will provide an introduction to two examples in ultracold atom physics where scale invariance plays an important role: three-body Efimov states of bosonic atoms and Fermions at infinite scattering length. We discuss the issue of an apparently 'universal' three-body parameter in the Efimov context and thermodynamic properties as well as RF-spectra and transport of the unitary Fermi gas.
