PhD student position in Fast rotating 2D superfluids

Fast rotating 2D superfluids

We propose to investigate the physics of fast rotating two-dimensional superfluids. In particular the PhD student will study the stability of a supersonic flow, recently obtained in the group [1], by implementing a non destructive in-situ imaging technique and recording the density profile evolution in the presence of a perturbation. A complex nonlinear dynamics is expected, involving for example shock waves formation. He/she will acquire a state of the art know-how on atom cooling, trapping, manipulation with radio-frequency fields and data analysis.
