Professor Chin's group used machine learning to study quantum fluctuations
This research, led by graduate student Lei Feng, showed a new correlation pattern in the k space that emerge from quantum fluctuations in a uniform Bose condensate. They amplified the fluctuations parametrically which gave rise to cascaded scatterings that ejected atoms in all directions. Using pattern recognition, they observed the hidden correlation.
