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.

Josephson effect of superfluid fermions across the BEC-BCS crossover

Shining a blue detuned thin (2 μm) barrier we produce a double-well potential, which creates a Josephson-like junction for fermionic superfluids. By varying the interactions we investigate the population and phase dynamics between the two wells, observing the Josephson effect across the BEC-BCS crossover.
