The topics of this special issue will include: Quantum simulation using cold atoms in optical lattices; fermionic mixtures of ultracold atoms; collisions of cold polar molecules; controlled interactions in quantum gases of metastable atoms; cavity-mediated molecular cooling; quantum-degenerate dipolar gases of bialkali molecules.
Quantum Matter is matter in which all the constituent atoms and molecules are in a single quantum state and behave coherently as a single quantum object. Since the first realization of Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) many new physical phenomena have emerged, and the first applications (such as atomic clocks) have been established.
This EPJ D topical issue will focus on recent advances in the diverse areas covered by the ESF Eurocores Network "Cold Quantum Matter EuroQUAM". However, the topical issue is not exclusively reserved to the themes of the Cold Quantum Matter EuroQUAM, but it is open to all original contributions from experts in the field of Cold Quantum Matter.
Guest Editors: Gerhard Birkl, Christopher Foot, Tim Freegarde, Rudolf Grimm, Jeremy Hutson, Matthias Weidemller.
Deadline for submission: December 31, 2010.
