Ultracold Atom Quantum Simulations: From Exploring Many-Body Localization to Low Temperature Fermi-Hubbard Phases

Monday, April 23, 2018 - 4:15pm

Ultracold-atom model-systems offer a unique way to investigate a wide range of many-body quantum physics in uncharted regimes. Quantum gas microscopy enables us to "zoom in" both, in space and time, on a single particle level. We can explore many-body quantum physics in regimes that are not computationally accessible. In my talk I will present recent experiments, including the first observation of an anti-ferromagnetic phase of Fermions in an optical lattice, and the observation of many-body localization.
