Principal Motivations: why ultracold MIXTURES? Optical Lattices: direct mapping on the spin hamiltonian has been shown -> Quantum Magnetic Phases could be explored - antiferromagnetic (Néel) state, - xy-ferromagnetic state - …. Possibility to control a wide number of experimental parameters: - dipolar and magnetic potentials - strength of interactions can be adjusted by magnetic field (Feshbach) Entropy control of species A exploiting species B: good to achieve low entropy and temperature regimes for quantum phases in OL Jacopo CataniOBERGURGLJune 2010 CANDIDATE TESTBENCH FOR QUANTUM SPIN MODELS

How an optical lattice is realized? Exploit: 1.the dipolar interaction with EM field: depending on detuning (red or blue) atoms go or escape from light intensity maxima 2.the coherence of laser light: overlapping two beams, one has a periodic pattern of maxima and minima Periodicity: /2 Light intensity determines lattice strength: U=sE rec Jacopo CataniOBERGURGLJune 2010

Mixtures in Optical Lattices MIXTURES (spin or species): Small tunneling still localizes atoms Ground state has a large energetic degeneracy for exactly J= 0.

Effects of Temperature on Phase Diagram …everything seems to be ready for Quantum Magnetism… ….but HOW COLD should the mixture be?

Effects of Temperature on Phase Diagram …everything seems to be ready for Quantum Magnetism… ….but HOW COLD should the mixture be? Bothshould be as low as possible -Initial ENTROPY/TEMPERATURE -Heating rate during lattice phase A method to control the ENTROPY of the system at ultralow temperatures would be desirable in order to ease the realization of ordered phases!

15
Entropy exchange in an ultracold atomic mixture (collaboration with S. Stringari, University of Trento)

16
Entropy exchange in a Bose-Bose Mixture KEY IDEA: start from an ultracold (degenerate) 2 species mixture use a species-selective dipole potential (SSDP) that acts only on a certain species (K), whereas the other (Rb) is transparent and perform a COMPRESSION. SINGLE GAS: a (ideal) compression is ISOENTROPIC, In BEC terms: density of energy states decreases and T increases, T/Tc is not altered TWO GASES: a compression acting on a single species (SSDP) is still ISOENTROPIC for K+Rb, decreases as before but T increases less. T/Tc is reduced for the compressed species, entropy is transferred from K to Rb! In the limit N Rb >> N K Rb is a thermal bath, negligible T increase, ISOTHERMAL transformation ! J. C., G. Barontini, G. Lamporesi, F. Rabatti, G. Thalhammer, F. Minardi, S. Stringari, and M. Inguscio, Phys. Rev. Lett. 103, (2009). Jacopo CataniOBERGURGLJune 2010

17
Entropy exchange in a Bose-Bose Mixture PROCEDUREwe use a selective compression (SSDP) of K to reduce its entropy by transferring it to Rb M-trap + SSDP K Rb M-trap freq. for K: 2π × (24, 297, 297)Hz J. C., G. Barontini, G. Lamporesi, F. Rabatti, G. Thalhammer, F. Minardi, S. Stringari, and M. Inguscio, Phys. Rev. Lett. 103, (2009). K Rb Sample is prepared after evaporation and sympathetic cooling in m-trap (400 nK) T is right above critical temperature for BEC N Rb ~ 5 N K SSDP beam power is raised to a variable value in 200 ms with =45 ms (adiabaticity is fulfilled) Max. compression ratio on K frequencies: ~2 Jacopo CataniOBERGURGLJune 2010

18
Entropy exchange in a Bose-Bose Mixture Selective compression can induce BEC transition on K, and K entropy is transferred to Rb cloud NO BEC if Rb is absent [1] S. Giorgini, L. P. Pitaevskii, and S. Stringari, J. Low. Temp. Phys. 109, 309 (1997). [2] L. Pitaevskii and S. Stringari, Bose-Einstein Condensation (Oxford University Press, 2003). [3] M. Naraschewski and D. M. Stamper-Kurn, Phys. Rev. A 58, 2423 (1998). K Rb K Exact quantitative analisys is not possible for interacting gases [1], we start from ideal trapped case [2] to numerically estimate final T after compression using entropy conservation. We include the effect of interactions in the estimated f c (T) [3] SELECTIVE COMPRESSION of K J. C., G. Barontini, G. Lamporesi, F. Rabatti, G. Thalhammer, F. Minardi, S. Stringari, and M. Inguscio, Phys. Rev. Lett. 103, (2009) Rb atoms 10 5 K atoms T=400 nK Jacopo CataniOBERGURGLJune 2010

19
Entropy exchange in a Bose-Bose Mixture Is this entropy exchange reversible? For spin mixtures or single species in dimple traps D. M. Stamper-Kurn et al., PRL 81, 2194 (1998). M. Erhard et al, PRA 70, (2004). We perform several cycles of compression/decompression with the SSDP technique (128->216 Hz) We observe more than 5 BEC revivals J. C., G. Barontini, G. Lamporesi, F. Rabatti, G. Thalhammer, F. Minardi, S. Stringari, and M. Inguscio, Phys. Rev. Lett. 103, (2009). Jacopo CataniOBERGURGLJune 2010 Non perfect efficiency can be due to: 1) modest temperature increase of the sample in the process (more than 2 s in trap, 400 -> 500 nK) 2) N Rb is decreasing (~ 50%), due to RF shield imposed to compensate for m-trap heating rate

Beam Power: 32 mW Beam waist: 55 m Beam orthogonal to the weak M-trap axis nm nm ! HEATING ! The tighter the manifold, the higher the scattering rate Cs should be a better reservoir D1-D2= 42 nm ! Jacopo CataniOBERGURGLJune 2010

21
…some non-magnetic applications for the SSD potential SSDP: gives the possibility to create a wide set of exotic geometries How do particles living in different spatial dimensionality interact? Different realms of Physics use this concept eg BRANE THEORY: particles confined in 3 spatial dimensions interact with 3+N dimensions gravitons SSDP could be employed to confine K in lower dimensions, whereas Rb remains 3D!

22
Scattering in Mixed Dimensions with ultracold Bose Mixtures (in collaboration with Yusuke Nishida, MIT)

23
Mix-dimensional scattering with a Bose mixture IDEA: -employ the species-selective dipole potential (SSDP) in order to confine only the K component in lower dimensions, leaving Rb in 3D - use a 1D LATTICE configuration: size of K cloud ' l osc in the lattice dir. - use the Feshbach resonance to vary interspecies scattering length If k B T<< ~ ! K (lattice levels spacing) the K sample can energetically be considered 1D Scattering effectively occurs among particles living in different dimensions Jacopo CataniOBERGURGLJune 2010

24
Mix-dimensional scattering with a Bose mixture PROCEDURE: -start from an ultracold mixture at 300 nK -adiabatically ramp the lattice heigth (50 ms exp. ramp, =10 ms) -we scan the magnetic field across the low field 3D Feshbach resonance for different lattice strengths s=V lat / E rec B field Lattice strength We detect enhancement of losses in N at due to the increase of 2 and 3body recombination rate Hold time: ms Jacopo CataniOBERGURGLJune 2010

26
Mix-dimensional scattering with a Bose mixture QUALITATIVE - energy of incoming K atom is raised by selective confinement. EXPLANATION: - energy of KRb molecule is raised differently (selective confinement) - no decoupling of CM and internal motion -> CM energy can change - Each time the molec. Level crosses the treshold -> RESONANCE M. Olshanii, PRL 81, 938 (1998) for symmetric confinement P. Massignan and Y. Castin, PRA 74, (2006) for asymmetric confinement 1- Channel coupling is neglected for n>0 2- Internal state of molecule does not change K K SERIES of resonances G. Lamporesi, J. Catani, G.

28
Effective range correction to a scattering model These predictions are confirmed by a more formal scattering model, derived from previous works, improved by an effective range correction. P. Massignan and Y. Castin, PRA 74, (2006) Y. Nishida and S. Tan, PRL 101, (2008). Y. Nishida and S. Tan, PRA 79, R (2009) In order to retrieve r 0 we employ previous results on molecular K-RB Measured values for E b are fitted by the formula Obtaining the effective range value: D. S. Petrov, Phys. Rev. Lett. 93, (2004). C. Weber et al., Phys. Rev. A 78, (R) (2008) G. Thalhammer et al., New J. Phys. 11, (2009) r 0 = a 0 G. Lamporesi, J. Catani, G. Barontini, Y. Nishida, M. Inguscio, and F.
