Hamburg Photon Science Colloquium | Manipulating matter with light: the case of superconductors

by Lara Benfatto (Department of Physics, Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy)

Europe/Berlin
Description

Broken-symmetry states in condensed matter offer the unprecedented opportunity to observe collective electronic modes behaving as particle-like excitations. A famous example is the Higgs amplitude mode in  superconductors. However, its weak coupling to light make it hard to observe it in conventional conditions. In this talk I will review our progresses in the theoretical understanding of light-matter interaction in superconductors when non-linear optical effects comes into play.
