1
World of ultracold atoms with strong interaction National Tsing-Hua University Daw-Wei Wang

2
Temperature ? What we mean by “ultracold” ?

3
Why low temperature ? Ans: To see the quantum effects ! Uncertainty principle:

4
(after Nature, 416, 225 (’02))

5
Why strong interaction ? Because interaction can make “many” to be “different” ! P. Anderson: “Many is not more” Example: 1D interacting electrons crystalization and no fermionic excitation

6
How to make interaction stronger ?

7
How to reach ultracold temperature ? 1. Laser cooling ! (1997 Nobel Price) Use red detune laser + Doppler effect

8
How to reach ultracold temperature ? 2. Evaporative cooling ! Reduce potential barrial +thermal equilibrium

9
Typical experimental environment MIT

10
How to do measurement ? Trapping and cooling Perturbing Releasing and measuring BEC (2001 Nobel Price)

11
What is Bose-Einstein condensation ? When T is small enough, noninteracting bosons like to stay in the lowest energy state, i.e. BEC

12
How about fermions in T=0 ? When T-> 0, noninteracting fermions form a compact distribution in energy level. E D(E) Fermi sea

13
BEC and Superfluidity of bosons Superfluid Normal fluid v repulsion Landau’s two-fluid model BEC = superfluidity uncondensate condensate (after Science, 293, 843 (’01))

14
Phonons and interference in BEC Phonon=density fluctuation Interference Matter waves ? (after Science 275, 637 (’97))

15
Vortices in condensate Vortex = topological disorder E L 1320 Vortices melting, quantum Hall regime ? (after Science 292, 476 (’01)) (after PRL 87, 190401 (’01))

16
Spinor condensation in optical trap Na B E F=2 F=1 (see for example, cond-mat/0005001)

17
Boson-fermion mixtures Sympathetic cooling Fermions are noninteracting ! phonon-mediated interaction fermion phonon E D(E) Interacting fermi sea rf-pulse

18
Feshbach Resonance (i) Typical scattering: (ii) Resonant scattering: B a Molecule state

19
Molecule and pair condensate (JILA, after Nature 424, 47 (’03)) (MIT group, PRL 92, 120403 (’04)) (Innsbruck, after Science 305, 1128 (’04))

20
B a First evidence of superfluidity of fermion pairing

21
Optical lattice 3D lattice 1D lattice Entanglement control other lattice

22
Mott-Insulator transition (after Nature 415, 39 (’02)) n=1 n=2 n=3 superfluid Bose-Hubbard model

23
Fermions in optical lattice Fermi Hubbard model Superfluidity of fermion pairing in lattice is also realized.

24
Transport in 1D waveguide Interference ? Finite temperature + semiconductor technique wave guide wire

25
