Abstract: The project includes the development of experimental and theoretiucal research lines in the field of quantum gases. The lab aims at realizing binary condensates with coherent coupling for quantum simulation of fundamental interactions and analog gravity models. Furthermore, it aims at studying the properties of finite-temperature magnetic systems, vacuum fluctuations in spinorial condensates and the use of ultracold atoms for atomic clocks.
All these experimental activities will be developed in strong synergy with the theoretical component of the BEC Center. The theoretical reseach line will include also broader topics regarding gases and quantum fluids, superfluidity, and more generally coherence phenomena, supersolidity, analogies between atomic systems and other systems in condensed matter, quantum optics, quantum optomechanical systems, quantum dots, quantum information and computing, and systems showing macroscopic effects of quantum mechanics, offering the possibility to develop novel systems based on thre quantum properties of light and matter.
These research lines are in the framework of the activities of Q@TN.
The technological applications of such a research will be highlighted within the technological transfer of Q@TN.

The Scientific Results:
1) Observation of Massless and Massive Collective Excitations with Faraday Patterns in a Two-Component Superfluid
2) Observation of vortices and vortex stripes in
a dipolar condensate

3) Bogoliubov theory of the laser linewidth and application to polariton condensates
4) Coherently Coupled Mixtures of Ultracold Atomic Gases
5) Detection of Berezinskii-Kosterlitz-Thouless transition via generative adversarial networks
6) Analogue quantum simulation of the Hawking effect in a polariton superfluid
7) Moment of inertia and dynamical rotational response of a supersolid dipolar gas
8) Dynamical theory for one-dimensional fermions with strong two-body losses: Universal non-Hermitian Zeno physics and spin-charge separation
9) Quantum Density Matrix Theory for a Laser Without Adiabatic Elimination of the Population Inversion: Transition to Lasing in the Class-B Limit
