Experimental progress in strongly coupling quantum gases into quantized electromagnetic fields of quantum cavities has opened a new avenue in many-body physics --- referred to commonly as many-body cavity quantum electrodynamics (QED) --- where the dynamics of both quantum matter and electromagnetic fields play equally essential roles. In this talk, after a short review of state of the art in many-body cavity QED Prof. Farokh Mivehvar will present some of their recent theoretical works on many-body fermionic cavity QED. In particular, he will talk about superradiant topological Peierls insulators, Hofstadter butterfly in a cavity-induced dynamic synthetic magnetic field, and antiferromagnetic self-ordering of a Fermi gas in a ring cavity.

In-person with online live-stream available. Coffee and refreshments will be served. 

This seminar is part of the series on Quantum Science & Technology and Condensed Matter Physics.
