Fermions with tunable interactions... In the lithium lab we produce ultracold Fermi gases of 6Li to explore out-of-equilibrium dynamics and transport phenomena in strongly correlated fermionic matter. Atoms are confined into light-imprinted potential structures, simulating the motion of electrons in solid state devices. Our main goal is the study of two-dimensional strongly correlated phases, such as superfluidity across the BCS-BEC crossover and its robustness to disorder.

Arbitrary high-resolution potentials on ultracold fermions

We have implemented a new high-resolution imaging system, that also makes it possible to imprint onto the atomic cloud arbitrary optical potentials created with a digital micromirror device (DMD). This will allow us to study quantum transport of fermionic gases in arbitrary geometries -- from the non-interacting limit to the strongly correlated regime, from the clean to the disordered case. An upgrade of the setup for the production of quasi-two-dimensional clouds is now under way, stay tuned!
