Event DetailsEvent Dates: Thursday, December 15, 2016 - 1:00pmSeminar Location: JILA X325Speaker Name(s): Andrew SykesSpeaker Affiliation(s): CNRS, University of Paris-Sud Seminar Type/SubjectScientific Seminar Type: OtherSeminar Type Other: Public SeminarEvent Details & Abstract: In this talk I will discuss my recent work on few-body physics with periodically driven interactions. Within the context of the two-body problem, I will demonstrate how the driving can shift the scattering length. For certain parameters of the drive, resonances occur where the scattering length can be made infinite. I will then move to the three-body problem. Specifically, I will discuss the heavy-heavy-light system (within the Born-Oppenheimer approximation, where it is largely analytically solvable). I will introduce a mechanism (created by the driving) that allows a level of tunability of parameters of the three-body problem, including the inelasticity parameter.
