Presentation Title

Elastic Quantum Scattering of Cold Atoms from a Carbon Nanotube

Abstract

It has been proposed that a variety of quantum-based technologies can be realized utilizing aspects of the interaction of cold atoms with carbon nanotubes. In addition, interesting quantum phases of matter such as superfluid He films can be grown a single layer at a time on carbon nanotubes. For these reasons, we seek to understand how cold atoms stick and scatter from a nanotube. We begin by investigating elastic quantum scattering of a cold atom from a radially symmetric potential V(r).
