LKB - Ultracold Fermi Gases


Principal Investigators: Christophe Salomon and Tarik Yefsah

Strongly interacting Fermi gases at the single atom level

We are currently building a new experiment which aims at exploring further the behavior of strongly interacting Bose and Fermi gases using Lithium isotopes. This new generation experiment is designed to allow for high resolution shaping of arbitrary potentials and detection of single atoms. These tools will offer a microscopic perspective for the study of the BEC-BCS crossover in 3D, 2D as well as topological states of matter.
