In this experimentally focused talk, I will introduce a new research laboratory established at Swinburne University of Technology in Australia. The main focus of this laboratory is to study non-equilibrium physics of gravitationally bouncing droplets of fluid, subjected to periodic driving force.  In the inaugural experiment, we have created and observed long-lived and interacting time crystals whose evolution we have witnessed for the duration of more than one hundred thousand temporal lattice sites. Our observations provide points of comparison for experiments that differentiate between quantum and classical time crystal behaviours in driven non-equilibrium systems. 

About Australia - New Zealand Cold Atom Seminars

This new initiative hosts a seminar once a month for the Australia – New Zealand cold atom research community.  The purpose is to encourage and facilitate ongoing discussions and collaboration in the local community.  Talks should be less than 40 minutes in length to allow ample time for questions and discussion.

Seminars will be held on the last Friday of the month (except for December) at 1pm Melbourne time (which is normally 3pm New Zealand time).  While the primary format is online via Zoom, various institutions will host the seminar in local seminar rooms.  The Zoom link is https://uqz.zoom.us/j/88604569495

You can sign up for announcements for the seminars at this webpage:

Seminars are recorded, and past seminars can be accessed from this web page.
