题 目：聆听自旋的噪音-Listening carefully to the noise of spins
时 间：5月17日（周三 ），上午10:00-10:40
Noise is not always that annoying. Articulated by the well-known Fluctuation-Dissipation theorem in equilibrium thermodynamics, fluctuation itself (i.e., noise) can reveal all the dynamic information of the system. Optical spin-noise spectroscopy (SNS) is such a minimally invasive route towards obtaining dynamical information about semiconductors and atomic gases by measuring time-dependent spin fluctuations. Most of the experimental and theoretical studies have been focused so far on the second-order spin correlator. Here I will discuss our efforts of pushing forward this powerful technique towards obtaining more information. I will talk about our theoretical study on the non-equilibrium spin noise spectroscopy and recent study on higher-order correlators, i.e. 3rd and 4th order, which are expected to reveal more information than second order correlator. We developed a stochastic path integral formation and found a universal relation among all the higher-order parameters. Applying this method to atomic gas with noisy magnetic field, we predicted and observed the pattern of 4th order correlator. 3rd order correlator is also predicted and measured in single quantum dot, which reveals inhomogeneous and homogeneous broadening effects and moreover, quantum measurement effects.
