Fermions with tunable interactions... In the Lithium lab we produce binary mixtures of 6Li Fermi gases to investigate fermionic superfluidity across the BEC-BCS crossover. Our main goal is to study two-dimensional fermionic superfluids.

Superfluid Fermi gases in two dimensions

We aim at studying two-dimensional fermionic 6Li atoms across the BCS-BEC crossover. We plan to benefit of the recent advances in ultracold atomic systems, such as single-site addressability and the full control of the interparticle interactions. Tailoring arbitrary optical potentials will create the perfect environment for implementing quantum models. In particular, we want to characterize the superfluid phase by studying the interlayer tunneling, discriminating the coherent Josephson dynamics from the single-particle hopping. By adding disorder we will simulate the physics of granular superconductors, testing the robustness of the order parameter and the onset of metallic phases at higher temperatures.
