    Abstract:

    Understanding transport in the strongly interacting quantum matter is one of the greatest challenges of many-body physics. Homogeneous samples of ultracold atomic gases provide a remarkable opportunity to study transport down to the single-atom level. However, while particle and spin transport is rather readily accessible, the transport of heat and momentum, as well as transport in the presence of gauge fields, requires the development of novel tools and techniques. I will present our recent direct observation of heat transport in strongly interacting Fermi gases using local thermometry, as well as novel measurements of Hall viscosity in a quantum gas under rotation.
