Mass imbalanced fermions are great! In the CrLi lab we want to produce a novel Fermi-Fermi mixture composed by Lithium and Chromium atoms. At the Cr-Li mass ratio exotic trimer states exist, which in turn will allow the first resonant control of elastic three-body interactions. This opens new perspectives for the study of elusive superfluid and magnetic phases with ultracold fermions.

ERC starts the Cr/Li Lab!

Matteo Zaccanti has been awarded with an ERC Starting Grant! The title of the project is "PoLiChroM: Superfluidity and ferromagnetism of unequal mass fermions with 2- and 3-body resonant interactions” (proposal #637738). Congratulations!
