Dynamite team members at the BEC Conference 2023

The Bose-Einstein Condensation Conference 2023 took place in Sant Feliu de Guixols (Spain) from September 9th to September 15th. Several members of the Dynamite project team took part and contribute to the biennial conference on quantum gases and related fields.

The meeting provided participants with the possibility to share the latest developments on several topics including quantum simulation with single atom resolution. Leticia Tarruell, researcher at ICFO, and Gabrielle Ferrari, from University of Trento were members of the conference’s Scientific Committee. Furthermore, several members of the Dynamite project attended the event and contributed with talks and poster presentations in some of the scheduled sessions.
Here are some of the contributions:
