Event Details & Abstract: 

I will report on two recent efforts of my research group at Berkeley.  First, I will discuss the characterization of magnetic excitations in ferromagnetic Bose-Einstein condensates.  Second, I will report on studies of cavity optomechanics with cold trapped gases, focusing on our recent achievement of quantum limited force detection.
