      Nonadiabatic unitary evolution with tailored time-dependent Hamiltonians can prepare systems of cold-atomic gases with various desired properties such as low excess energies. For a system of two one-dimensional quasicondensates ...

      Geometric phases that characterize the topological properties of Bloch bands play a fundamental role in the band theory of solids. Here we report on the measurement of the geometric phase acquired by cold atoms moving in ...

      We analyze the effects of a random magnetic potential in a microfabricated waveguide for ultracold atoms. We find that the shape and position fluctuations of a current carrying wire induce a strong Gaussian correlated ...
