The 12 lectures identify new directions in the field of ultracold physics, such as quantum gases with long range interactions, either due to strong magnetic dipole forces, due to Rydberg excitations, or, for polar molecules due to electric dipole interactions; quantum gases in lower dimensions; quantum gases with disorder; atoms in optical lattices, now with single-site optical resolution; systems with non-trivial topological properties such as spin-orbit coupling or in artificial gauge fields; quantum impurity problems (Bose and Fermi polarions); and quantum magnetism.
It was assumed that the electric dipole source / was located somewhere in space and that the time-harmonic factor was [.
Fierlinger's team currently is developing an experiment to determine the charge distribution in neutrons--referred to by physicists as the electric dipole moment.
This reduces to six the number of possible electric dipole orientations for each cell (-x, +x, -y, +y, -z, z), to be consistent with 90[degrees] or 180[degrees] experimentally observed polarization domain switching.
This physiological support for polarity discrimination prompted us to employ a behavioral assay to test whether elasmobranch fishes can be trained to discriminate between the anode and cathode of an electric dipole.
Unlike the electric dipole, the current distribution of the magnetic dipole is not restricted in a narrow region.
