Ten Minute Talk:"Outreach Opportunities in the Mentoring Program at Cristo Rey" by Ryan Fay, Cristo Rey Boston High School
Do p-wave systems have universal properties? Ultracold gasses are normally dominated by s-wave interactions due to the centrifugal suppression of scattering channels with orbital angular momenta. A departure from the s-wave-dominated regime can be induced by femionic exchange symmetry, Feshbach resonances, and population of excited lattice bands. In this talk, I will discuss recent work...

Ten Minute Talk:"TBD" by Jiho Sung, Harvard
Chemical reactions in the quantum degenerate regime are governed by nonlinear mixing of matterwave fields. For Bosonic reactants and products, coherent dynamics and bosonic enhancement are two unique features of reactions in the quantum regime, also known as “quantum super-chemistry”. In this talk, I report the observation of collective oscillations between atomic and molecular condensates....

Ten Minute Talk:"TBD" by Yao Group
One of the first model systems we encounter in quantum mechanics class is a mass on a spring. However, in practice, it is not easy to observe a massive mechanical object exhibiting the quantum properties of a harmonic oscillator, such as zero-point fluctuations, energy quantization, or quantum superpositions. Nevertheless, in recent years, it has become...

Ten Minute Talk:"TBD" by Doyle Group
The absence of experimental signatures of beyond-Standard-Model physics at colliders and dark matter detectors motivates us to look for improved ways to find new physics. In this context, solid-state systems — ensembles of atoms and molecules trapped in crystals — offer interesting advantages for realizing sensitive high-SNR searches for new physics. I will introduce some...

Ten Minute Talk:"TBD" by Andrew Stasiuk, MIT
An amazing level of quantum control is routinely reached in modern experiments with atoms, but similar control over molecules has been an elusive goal. A method based on quantum logic spectroscopy [1] can address this challenge for a wide class of molecular ions [2,3]. We have now realized many basic aspects of these proposals. In...
