Magnetic Bloch Oscillations (Monday Schedule)
This event is part of the Condensed Matter Theory Seminar Series.
The Bloch oscillations phenomenon was predicted in the early days of quantum mechanics, and has been observed experimentally in a range of systems, however not yet in magnetism. In this talk I will present theoretical predictions for neutron scattering spectral signatures of Bloch oscillations in a one dimensional magnetic system. The talk will start with some hopefully pedagogical (undergraduate level) numerical simulations of Bloch oscillations.
