We review the recent developments and the current status in the field of quantum-gas cavity QED. Since the first experimental demonstration of atomic self-ordering in a system composed of a Bose–Einstein condensate coupled to a quantized electromagnetic mode of a high-Q optical cavity, the field has rapidly evolved over the past decade. The composite quantum-gas-cavity systems offer the opportunity to implement, simulate, and experimentally test fundamental solid-state Hamiltonians, as well as… 

Mott transition in a cavity-boson system: A quantitative comparison between theory and experiment

The competition between short-range and cavity-mediated infinite-range interactions in a cavity-boson system leads to the existence of a superfluid phase and a Mott-insulator phase within the

Coupling of magnetic and optomechanical structuring in cold atoms

Self-organized phases in cold atoms as a result of light-mediated interactions can be induced by coupling to internal or external degrees of the atoms. There has been growing interest in the

Self-organized topological insulator due to cavity-mediated correlated tunneling

Topological materials have potential applications for quantum technologies. Non-interacting topological materials, such as e.g., topological insulators and superconductors, are classified by means of

Self-Organization in Cold Atoms Mediated by Diffractive Coupling

This article discusses self-organization in cold atoms via light-mediated interactions induced by feedback from a single retro-reflecting mirror. Diffractive dephasing between the pump beam and the

Cooling and state preparation in an optical lattice via Markovian feedback control

We propose and investigate a scheme for in-situ cooling a system of interacting bosonic atoms in a one-dimensional optical lattice without particle loss. It is based on Markovian feedback control.

Measurement-Induced Dark State Phase Transitions in Long-Ranged Fermion Systems.

We identify an unconventional algebraic scaling phase in the quantum dynamics of long-range hopping, free fermions, which are exposed to continuous local measurements. The algebraic phase occurs for

Multimode-polariton superradiance via Floquet engineering

We consider an ensemble of ultracold bosonic atoms within a near-planar cavity, driven by a far detuned laser whose phase is modulated at a frequency comparable to the transverse cavity mode spacing.

Atomic self-ordering with competing long-range interactions

We study a quantum many-body system with two competing and substantially different longrange interaction potentials. To this end, we consider a two-dimensional BEC in the Rydbergdressing regime

Classical and Quantum Collective Recoil Lasing: A Tutorial

Collective atomic recoil lasing (CARL) is a process during which an ensemble of cold atoms, driven by a far-detuned laser beam, spontaneously organize themselves in periodic structures on the scale



Cavity QED with a Bose–Einstein condensate

A conceptually new regime of cavity QED is achieved, in which all atoms occupy a single mode of a matter-wave field and couple identically to the light field, sharing a single excitation, which opens possibilities ranging from quantum communication to a wealth of new phenomena that can be expected in the many-body physics of quantum gases with cavity-mediated interactions.

Quantum simulators based on the global collective light-matter interaction

We show that coupling ultracold atoms in optical lattices to quantized modes of an optical cavity leads to quantum phases of matter, which at the same time posses properties of systems with both

Abstract.We study an ultracold gas of neutral atoms subject to the periodic optical potential generated by a high-Q cavity mode. In the limit of very low temperatures, cavity field and atomic

Quantum phases from competing short- and long-range interactions in an optical lattice

The measurements have accessed a regime for quantum simulation of many-body systems where the physics is determined by the intricate competition between two different types of interactions and the zero point motion of the particles.

We investigate the quantum measurement noise effects on the dynamics of an atomic Bose lattice gas inside an optical resonator. We describe the dynamics by means of a hybrid model consisting of a

Dicke quantum phase transition with a superfluid gas in an optical cavity

The Dicke quantum phase transition is realized in an open system formed by a Bose–Einstein condensate coupled to an optical cavity, and the emergence of a self-organized supersolid phase is observed.

We review state-of-the-art theory and experiment of the motion of cold and ultracold atoms coupled to the radiation field within a high-finesse optical resonator in the dispersive regime of the

The quantum ground-state properties of ultracold bosonic atoms interacting with the mode of a high-finesse resonator are determined and, for large parameter regions, cavity backaction forces the atoms into clusters with a checkerboard density distribution.
