Project Level: PhD

Atomtronics is an emerging field of applications of ultracold atom systems, where particle and superfluid properties can be used to realise analogs of conventional electronics or exploit additional degrees of freedom to realise novel circuit behaviour.

Some relatively recent work in the UQ BEC laboratory has demonstrated that the understanding superfluid circuit behaviour is improved through acoustic models. The aim of this PhD project will be to test a generalised acoustic model for more complex atomtronic circuits, especially one that incorporates the effects of dissipation and turbulence. Potential improvements to atomtronic devices, such as engineering acoustic resonances will be an additional aim of this project.
