We aim to widen the range of quantum simulations with cold atoms, by investigating phenomena arising from the long-ranged dipolar interaction in reduced dimensionalities. We are operating a new experimental setup based on quantum gases of the highly magnetic Dysprosium atoms. This is a joint project between LENS and CNR-INO, Sezione di Pisa.

Giulio Biagioni wins SIF prize for young graduates in physics

During the national congress of the Società Italiana di Fisica (SIF), held in Milan from the 12th to the 16th of September, the prize for young graduates in physics, entitled to Giuliano Toraldo di Francia, has been awarded to Giulio Biagioni, PhD student of the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Florence working in the Dy Lab. Giulio's PhD project is focused on the study of the supersolid phase of matter in a dipolar quantum gas.
