Decoherence issues for cold atoms near surfaces

Date: 
Wednesday 29th September 2004 - 11:45 to 12:30
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 

I will discuss how cold atoms can be manipulated by atom chips to form quantum registers, and discuss the heating and loss of coherence of such atoms close to the guiding structures. My talk will be theoretical, but will relate to the experimental programme underway at Imperial College led by Prof E A Hinds
