"Draining a superfluid hose"
This event is part of the Condensed Matter Theory Seminar Series.
In this talk I will discuss ongoing work on the dynamics of quantum systems subject to continuous local measurement. Specifically, I will discuss some preliminary results on 1D condensates in which particles are continuously being lost. In the thermodynamic limit, a non-trivial non-equilibrium steady state will develop. I will provide evidence for the fact that Hawking radiation is emitted from the drain.
