CoQuS Talk by Quentin Glorieux

on "Quantum simulation with light: from superfluidity to Hawking radiation"


The Vienna Doctoral Programme on Complex Quantum Systems invites you to a


Seminar Talk

“Quantum simulation with light:
from superfluidity to Hawking radiation”

During this presentation I will introduce the basics of hydrodynamics with light in two important

systems: exciton-polariton micro-cavities and warm rubidium vapors. Using the analogy between
the non-linear Schrodinger equation and the Gross-Pitaevskii equation, I will answer the question
about “Can we observe superfluidity with light ?” 

I will also discuss recent non-linear and quantum optics experiments through the perspective
of hydrodynamics and I will show what are the surprising consequences of this approach.

Finally, I will review recent attempts to observe an analogue of the Hawking radiation at a black
hole horizon with table-top experiments.
