Strongly-correlated Fermi systems


Fermions with tunable interactions and confinement, imaged and manipulated with high spatial resolution using a microscope objective: In our lab we produce ultracold Fermi gases of 6Li to explore out-of-equilibrium dynamics and transport phenomena in strongly correlated fermionic matter. Atoms are confined and driven using arbitrarily tailored optical potentials, simulating the motion of electrons in solid state devices. Our main goal is to study mass and spin transport in two-dimensions and to investigate strongly correlated phases, such as superfluids and unitary gases and their robustness against disorder.
