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.

First Cr/Li MOT achieved!

We have finalized the construction of the experimental setup, and we're now able to produce the first Lithium-Chromium MOT worldwide! Fun has just begun!
