Event description: 

Ultracold atoms in modulated optical potentials provide new opportunities to study quantum gases away from equilibrium. In this talk, I will report several experiments performed in this direction in the Weld group at UC Santa Barbara. In particular, I will talk about Floquet prethemalization in a driven optical lattice, study of quasicrystals with a bichromatic optical lattice, and quantum simulation of ultrafast phenomena.
