TITLEQuest toward understanding neutron star matter using ultracold atomic gases

ABSTRACTNeutron stars are very dense and compact objects whose total mass, which is comparable to that of the sun, is packed within a 10km radius. Interestingly, researchers are now trying to learn the properties of matter in neutron stars from the study of very dilute cold atomic gases taking advantage of its universal nature. In this talk, I will overview the basics and the current status of this cross-disciplinary problem. If time allows, I will also briefly present our recent work related to this topic.
