We will use the single trapped ion to study out-of-equilibrium dynamics of the many-body system by exploiting the entanglement generated in the joint evolution of the degenerate gas and the ion. By this mean, we plan to study the phenomenon of the Anderson Orthogonality Catastrophe and the thermodynamics of a system out of equilibrium by testing the seminal Tasaki-Crooks fluctuation relation in the quantum regime.
Finally, we will use the single trapped ion as a single atom probe and as a density- and time- correlation detector in a system of atoms loaded in an optical lattice. This achievement will significantly improve current methods for probing many-body physics with ultracold atoms.
