"Quantum simulation with light : from superfluidity to rotating black holes"

Abstract

During this presentation I will introduce the basics of hydrodynamics with light in two important systems : exciton-polariton micro-cavities and warm rubidium vapors. Using the analogy between the non-linear Schrodinger equation and the Gross-Pitaevskii equation, I will answer the question about “Can we observe superfluidity with light ?”br> I will also discuss recent non-linear and quantum optics experiments through the perspective of hydrodynamics and I will show what are the surprising consequences of this approach in Optomechanics and in non-linear Optics. Finally, I will review recent attempts to observe an analogue of the Hawking radiation at a black hole horizon and other gravitational phenomena (like Penrose super-radiance and Klein paradox) with table-top experiments.
