Abstract In this work we analyze the dynamical behavior of the collision between two clouds of fermionic atoms with opposite spin polarization. By means of the time-evolving block decimation (TEBD) numerical method, we simulate the collision of two one-dimensional clouds in a lattice. There is a symmetry in the collision behaviour between the attractive and repulsive interactions. We analyze the pair formation dynamics in the collision region, providing a quantitative analysis of the pair… Expand


Hopping modulation in a one-dimensional Fermi-Hubbard Hamiltonian.
By the exact simulations of the time evolution, this work finds a nontrivial double occupancy frequency dependence in a strongly repulsive two-component Fermi gas in a one-dimensional optical lattice described in terms of a Hubbard Hamiltonian. Expand
Expansion dynamics in the one-dimensional Fermi-Hubbard model.
It is shown that the Hubbard-dimer dynamics, combined with a two-fluid model for the paired and nonpaired components of the gas, gives an efficient description of the full dynamics, which should be useful for describing dynamical phenomena of strongly interacting Fermions in a lattice in general.

Metallic and Insulating Phases of Repulsively Interacting Fermions in a 3D Optical Lattice
This work was able to directly measure the compressibility of the quantum gas in the trap using in situ imaging and independent control of external confinement and lattice depth, to demonstrate the potential to model interacting condensed-matter systems using ultracold fermionic atoms. Expand
Spin-charge separation in cold fermi gases: a real time analysis.
The robustness of this separation beyond the low-energy Luttinger liquid theory is shown by studying the time evolution of single particle excitations and density wave packets by the adaptive time-dependent density-matrix renormalization group method. Expand
Observation of shock waves in a strongly interacting Fermi gas.
The authors' simulations of the time-dependent density profiles agree very well with the data and provide clear evidence of shock wave formation in this universal quantum hydrodynamic system. Expand
Stroboscopic observation of quantum many-body dynamics
Recent experiments have demonstrated single-site resolved observation of cold atoms in optical lattices. Thus, in the future it may be possible to take repeated snapshots of an interacting quantumExpand
Atomic color superfluid via three-body loss.
This work studies the effect of the constraint on the many-body physics using bosonization and density matrix renormalization group techniques, and investigates the full dissipative dynamics including loss for the example of 6Li. Expand
Time-Resolved Observation and Control of Superexchange Interactions with Ultracold Atoms in Optical Lattices
By dynamically modifying the potential bias between neighboring lattice sites, the magnitude and sign of the superexchange interaction can be controlled, thus allowing the system to be switched between antiferromagnetic and ferromagnetic spin interactions. Expand
Universal spin transport in a strongly interacting Fermi gas
It is demonstrated that interactions can be strong enough to reverse spin currents, with components of opposite spin reflecting off each other, and obtained the spin drag coefficient, the spin diffusivity and the spin susceptibility as a function of temperature on resonance and shown that they obey universal laws at high temperatures.

A Mott insulator of fermionic atoms in an optical lattice
The formation of a Mott insulator of a repulsively interacting two-component Fermi gas in an optical lattice is reported, identified by three features: a drastic suppression of doubly occupied lattice sites, a strong reduction of the compressibility inferred from the response of double occupancy to an increase in atom number, and the appearance of a gapped mode in the excitation spectrum.
